The understanding of the power loss contributions of each loss source is essential for an effective development of swash plate type axial piston pump. However, it is difficult to obtain the assessment of the power loss distribution due to the lack of methodologies that allow an independent evaluation of each source. This paper addresses this challenge using the most recent simulation methods. It describes the determination of each source, along with the corresponding loss of performance, and the principle of their prediction during the design phase. It also reports the validation of the simulation model by comparing the simulated dynamic displacement chamber pressure and the solid body temperature distribution with measurements obtained from a special pump prototype. This proposed virtual assessment of power loss contributions is demonstrated on a commercial hydraulic unit and the detailed results are reported in this paper. View Full-Text
