Aircraft fluid power is the technology that deals with the control, generation and transmission of forces and movements of mechanical systems with the use of pressurized fluids in a confined system. Aircraft fluid power components are utilized in the aircraft to move and actuate the flaps, landing gear and brakes. Aircraft fluid power components system complexity varies from small aircrafts that require the fluid only for normal operation of wheel brakes to large aircrafts where the system is complex and large. In order to achieve the necessary reliability and redundancy, the system may consist of various subsystems. Aircraft fluid power components are generally utilized in the hydraulic as well as pneumatic systems. The pneumatic system and hydraulic system provide a means for the efficient operation of aircraft fluid power components. However, it is observed that majority of aircrafts that consists of pneumatic system utilize them only as a backup system for the operation of aircraft hydraulic power components when the hydraulic system fails. There are various components utilized in the aircraft fluid power system for the efficient operation of the aircrafts, such as pumps, valves and reservoir. Various types of reservoirs are used depending upon the requirements, which include pressurized and non-pressurized reservoirs. Numerous kinds of pumps are available in the market based on the application, which include power-driven pumps, constant-displacement pumps, gear-type power pump, gerotor pump, piston pump and vane pump.
