Experimental analysis for an energy efficient product design Due to growing demand of energy efficient products in the market, investigation of energyusage in product life cycle is becoming an important factor in the design process.Conventionally, such a need is addressed by analysis of the subject in existing designs andsubsequent design improvement. Consideration of energy efficiency at an early stage may add tothe complexity of the design process, but payoff may be significant in terms of marketdominance and energy cost. In this paper a design process using energy efficiency as one of theprimary criteria is presented. A laboratory setup is developed to test performance of hydraulicsystem components. Experimental analysis of component behavior in functional prototype of ahydraulic system is used to select components for optimum performance of a system in real lifeoperational conditions. The methodology can be utilized in design of similar system whereenergy efficiency is a primary design criterion.
