A one month test program was conducted to investigate the surface response rates of the flight control and combined hydraulic systems utilizing the power sharing concept. The basis for this testing was to establish the feasibility of using power sharing valves to reduce flight control and combined systems pump output requirements. The F-14 simulator was used to evaluate the performance of the power sharing valves. The test results provided verification that by utilizing the HYPOSH Hydraulic Power Sharing concept, stabilizer surface rates produced during 100 pump output can be achieved at 50 pump output. Recommendations are made for improvement of the value design and for the flight testing of a prototype power sharing valve with a destroked F-14 pump 12 output performing several missions to demonstrate satisfactory system performance.
