This study develops closed-form equations that may be used to guide the up-front design of a variable-displacement pump. In particular, the initial design of the control actuation system and the controller flow-gain is considered. A dynamic model of the pumping system is also presented and the dynamic effect of parameter variations such as actuator volume, discharge-hose volume, controller flow-gain and system leakage is discussed.
