This paper presents the conditions necessary to sustain a limit cycle in hydraulic position control systems with displacement feedback. The limit cycle performance of the system is then examined when the temperature of the working fluid varies between 283K(10°C) to 343K(70°C). Results are presented for an electrohydraulic system driving a load comprising inertia, viscous friction, and coulomb friction.
