HYSAN is one of the most effective hydraulic simulation packages available. A must have design tool for all fluid power engineers and designers. The HYSAN result - Efficient hydraulic system design. Fluid power and Computer Aided Design (CAD) meet.
HYSAN offers dynamic simulation of Hydraulic systems. This innovative software provides dynamic simulation capability to hydraulic designers at any stage of the design process: component development, system design concept, modeling new systems with existing components, or troubleshooting field problems. Modeling elements are applicable to any hydraulic hardware.
HYSAN calculates the non-linear time response of hydraulic components and systems. The graphic interface and built-in equation generator make this an easy-to-use package. Transient response plots and tabulated data of pressures, flows, forces, accelerations, velocities, displacements ...
With HYSAN software you can quickly predict and easily optimize design performance, stability, and energy efficiency before machining and assembly. Reduce your product lead-time and Research & Development costs. HYSAN provides dynamic simulation of hydraulic components and systems to obtain predictions of time response, performance, and stability. Output consists of transient response plots and tabulated data of pressures, accelerations, velocities, displacements, forces, flows, etc.

This one-day course covers the basic model creation capabilities of the HYSAN software. The course is a combination of hands on workshops and lectures. At the end of this course, attendees will have a full understanding of the capabilities in HYSAN and be able to create and solve models. The workshops can be customized or adjusted to model a particular component the customer makes or is in the process of designing.
This one-day course covers modeling systems to predict hydraulic system response of hydraulic, mechanical systems. The origin and derivation of the element library equations (Pascal, Bernoulli, Reynolds, Darcy, Moody …) and applying this to model physical situations is the focus of this course. The hands on workshops reinforce the equations and connect the physics to the response of the hydraulic system. Attendees will have a full understanding of the analysis capabilities provided by HYSAN®.
This one-day course covers controls and tuning of hydraulic, mechanical systems. The focus is placing electronic controls in the loop. The control can be defined as fundamental first or second order functions, or defined by a set of code. Energizing electrical coils and measurement delays complete the modeling. Workshops and lectures cover the use of frequency response methods to obtain the system’s dynamic signature, and the tuning the control to achieve a stable and responsive performance.

HYSAN provides dynamic simulation of hydraulic components and systems to obtain predictions of time response, stability, and performance. Output consists of transient response plots or tabulated data of pressures, flows, displacements, velocities, accelerations, forces, etc.
HYSAN is not directed toward a specific system, but any hydraulic, mechanical system can be modeled by assembling the basic elements from the extensive HYSAN element library.
HYSAN provides three sets of traditional English and three sets of Metric units, as well as, Custom units. Conversions between the various sets of units are also provided.
The accuracy obtained using HYSAN is best characterized by first establishing whether the modeling elements mathematically represent the physical system, and secondly, the ability to define the parameters of the model. When these conditions are met, HYSAN obtains good physical numbers. When the modeling elements do not accurately describe the physical system, then HYSAN will obtain the correct mathematical solution, but poor physical answers.
Yes, there are three 1-day training courses, Introductory HYSAN Training, Modeling Hydraulic Systems in HYSAN, and Electronic Controls and Tuning in HYSAN. Course description and pricing are provided on the HYSAN Corporation Services page. Consulting service is also offered.
ME&S stands for Maintenance, Enhancements, and Support. HYSAN software comes with the first year’s ME&S included. This includes phone and written support. Enhanced versions are sent at no additional cost. After the first year, this service is extended for an annual fee.
The Hydrasoft Corporation provides simulation services to the hydraulic industry, develops and licenses the HYSAN software product. HYSAN software is used to model and predict component and system behavior. HYSAN software is used exclusively by Hydrasoft Corporation consulting services. Hydrasoft Corporation was incorporated in 1984.
The first Version of HYSAN was implemented over 30 years ago on an Apple IIE computer running on an 8 bit Z80 chip. Since then, Hydrasoft Corporation has responded to the advances in the hardware and systems, while continually improving the HYSAN software and maintaining an easy to use, intuitive, user interface.
HYSAN’s element library is comprehensive and at the same time clear and easy to use. The element library analysis is well founded and based on the original work of Bernoulli, Newton, Reynolds, Fourier, Laplace, Darcy and Moody. The element library offers excellent analysis capabilities to model Hydraulic, Mechanical motion systems, and combined with the fast reliable and solid numerical methods, makes it one of the most effective hydraulic simulation packages available.
