An analysis of the system is discussed and its application to a paper form feeder carriage in a printer is described. A nonlinear differential equation is derived based on stated assumptions and lumped oil parameters. The equation is linearized and solutions for motor velocity and peak pressure, both versus time, are determined. The analytical results show the effect of system parameters on system acceleration, steady state volumetric efficiency, and peak pressure. A limited amount of experimental data has been collected and good correlation between theoretical prediction and experimental results for acceleration time and peak pressure has been achieved.
