In this study, the frictional power loss of the slippers affecting the performance of axial piston pumps and motors was investigated experimentally and theoretically. The working parameters and the slipper geometry causing minimum frictional power loss were determined. The system was also modeled by an artificial neural network. As can be seen in both approaches, the proposed neural network predictor can be employed in experimental applications of such systems.
