Fluid Power (Part 3) - Hydraulic Components

COURSE NO: M06-010
Fluid Power (Part 3) - Hydraulic Components
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course introduces the theory, concepts and modes of operation of hydraulic components. It also provides an understanding of how common hydraulic components function and interact with each other.


Fluid systems involve the use of fluids to transmit and multiply force. The basic hydraulic unit for this purpose makes use of various hydraulic components such as reservoirs, actuators, filters and accumulators. It also involves the use of diverse types of controls including pressure control and valves, flow control, directional control and solenoids.


This 6 PDH online course is applicable to mechanical engineers, design professionals, service technicians, operational & maintenance personnel, and facility engineers who are interested in gaining a better understanding in the hydraulic components of fluids.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Learn the operation of devices used to measure and regulate the pressure of fluids and to measure the temperature of fluids
  • Describe the functions of reservoirs, strainers, filters, and accumulators, and their uses in fluid power systems
  • Learn the types and operation of actuators used to transform the energy generated by hydraulic systems into mechanical force and motion
  • Learn about pneumatics, the characteristics and compressibility of gases and the most commonly used gases in pneumatic systems.
  • Learn the safety precautions and the potential hazards of compressed gases
  • Understand the types of system diagrams encountered in fluid power systems
  • Understand how hydraulic components are combined to form and operate together as a system
