# Accelerating hydraulic component and system design with model-based systems engineering

Hydraulic systems must satisfy increasing demands for high performance and efficiency of products without affecting durability. More and more control systems are introduced, adding another level of complexity that impacts the time and cost of development. Virtual product integration using multidomain system simulation is a technology deployed in various industries to reduce the number of real prototypes and test benches and to solve integration problems earlier in the development cycle.

The objective of this white paper is to explain the requirements in terms of simulation capabilities to perform such virtual integration, and to provide several application cases:

- Controllability and NVH characteristics of a vane pump
- Increase of energy efficiency
- Reduction of vibrations
