Abstract
The Navy uses electrohydraulic servomechanisms throughout the fleet in the control of vehicles, weapons, and platforms. Better understanding of how these systems work will lead to ways of improving their performance, safety, and reliability. Microprocessor control allows the combining of various inputs and responses into the feedback control action of these systems in order to increase their performance. An attempt has been made to develop a "user friendly" microprocessor control system to be used to study the effects of frequency, load, pressure, and flow on a typical hydraulic control system. Discussed in this thesis will be the effect of microprocessor control of electrohydraulic servomechanisms using a Macintosh computer.
