If a vane motor/pump was used in a hydraulic circuit, could the rotation of the vane pump be controlled for slight movement in angles?
I imagine this would would require a feedback controller, with position sensors. This controller would adjust the amount of flow and direction of flow of the hydraulic fluid.
The rotational output of the vane motor could be useful in similar circumstances where stepper motors are useful. Where specific and small amounts of rotation are required, with a holding torque
To summarize my question, can the rotational output of a vane motor be controller to specific angles and degrees? Or is a vane motor free rotating, and not easily specifically controlled from the flow of the hydraulic fluid?
