The Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power (CCEFP) will hold its Virtual Summit April 13-14th. The bi-annual meeting for the fluid power industry and academic researcher collaborators connects industry to university resources and talent through technical presentations, networking opportunities, facility tours of the host university, and special features.
The agenda includes the following:
Tuesday, April 13th will focus on component-specific research:
- Efficient, Compact, and Smooth Variable Propulsion Motor – Jim Van de Ven, UMN
- Polymer-Enhanced Fluid Effects on the Dynamic Response of Hydraulic Pumps – Paul Michael, MSOE
- Understanding Interfacial Mechanisms of High-Performance Ionic Liquid Lubricants – Ashlie Martini, U of California – Merced
- Use of Machine learning to create Regression-Based Pump/Motor Models – Jose Garcia Bravo
Tuesday evening will conclude with a guest presentation by Venkat Srinivasan, Director of Argonne Collaborative Center for Energy Storage Science (ACCESS) / Deputy Director of Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (DOE Innovation Hub) at Argonne National Laboratory and a poster session.
