Hydraulic Cylinder

Ideal transformation between hydraulic and 1-D translational work

 Description The Hydraulic Cylinder component models an ideal translational actuator. It transforms energy between the hydraulic and translational domains.
 Equations $p={p}_{a}$ $q={q}_{a}=A\frac{\mathrm{d}{s}_{\mathrm{rel}}}{\mathrm{d}t}$ $f=-{f}_{a}={f}_{b}=-Ap$ ${s}_{\mathrm{rel}}={s}_{b}-{s}_{a}$
