Fluid Power System Laboratory

Developing a system to generate power via fluids

 
There are many mechanical systems that apply the power of fluids, which are water, oil, air and others whose shapes are not fixed, around us. Our laboratory is conducting research, focusing on systems that produce power via fluids. Specifically, we examine the properties and control methods of fluid power through experiments and simulations, propose new fields of applications and develop new systems.
