This paper describes the design and prototyping of a new high-performance actuation system that combines the benefits of conventional hydraulic systems and direct-drive electrical actuators, namely high torque/mass ratio and modularity. It is referred to as the electrohydraulic actuator (EHA) and results from the fusion of the above-mentioned technologies. The EHA is a unique device with its own characteristics and requires hydraulic components that are specifically tailored to its needs and requirements. Based on a mathematical model of the EHA, the requirements for its components are determined. These requirements are used as a basis for component selection, component modification, and design of a customized new symmetrical linear actuator. The analysis of the EHA presented is supported by experimental data and explains the extremely high level of performance attained by a prototype of the EHA
