Hydraulic-Electric Analogies: Power in Circuits (.PDF Download)

Power in electric and hydraulic systems is perfectly analogous. For hydraulic circuits, power is calculated as the product of flow and pressure:

Power = W = P × Q

where W is power (watts), P is pressure (N/m2), and Q is flow (m3/sec)...
