Independent metering poses a possibility of improving energy efficiency of throttle-controlled hydraulic single-rod cylinder drives. This paper deals with the volumetric potentials gained through variable circuitry that comes along with independent metering. A method of assessment of energetic potentials is described, based on load specific, optimal operating modes. As a means of yielding maximum energy efficiency for a wide range of applications, a smooth mode switching algorithm is proposed that minimizes losses and allows good motion tracking. The mode switching algorithm is validated in simulation and on a test stand.
