The only course in hydraulics you will ever need!. This course covers the basics of hydraulic systems.

At the beginning of the course, we will cover how systems function, then we will get to the various fluids that can be used in the hydraulic systems.

After every section, there is a quiz so you can review what you learned and what you should maybe revise again.

The plan is that when you finish this course you will know enough about hydraulics to continue to learn about more advanced systems.

I will be releasing a Hydraulics 102 course very soon which will cover hydraulic pumps, motors, and cylinders in detail. As well as diagrams and schematics.

Who this course is for:

  1. Mechanical engineering students
  2. Mechanics
  3. Hydraulic technicians
  4. Engineering students
  5. Engineers

What Will I Learn?

  • Hydraulic power systems
  • The basics of how hydraulic systems work
  • The basics of work fluids that are used in hydraulic systems
  • The basics of pumps and hydraulic motors
  • The basics of energy converter parameters
