ELEVATING PLATFORM WITH HYDRAULIC DRIVING AND ENERGY RECOVERY SYSTEM
The paper presents an experimental model for an elevating platform with hydraulic driving and energy recovery system, which aims the demonstration of possibility for recovery the potential energy from the lifting mechanisms with hydraulic driving. There are presented the designing of model, conceptual schema of the experimental model and the main components and subassemblies of the model. The experimental model was used for a experimental research, when were obtained o lot of graphical results regarding the variation of the main functional parameters of the platform, but this results will be presented in future paper. They have clearly demonstrated the possibility of potential energy recovery at elevating platforms.
