hydraulic system

A fluid power system that transmits power or force through an incompressible fluid. A typical system consists of a reservoir, a hydraulic pump, a valve to control the flow of fluid, systems of pipelines, and actuators. Normally, at least two systems (main and standby) are provided in an aircraft to ensure safety.
