  • Publication number: 20240060560
    Abstract: A hydraulic pressure supply device/method supplies constant hydraulic pressure for a certain time period even if trouble occurs. A hydraulic pressure supply device has a first connecting line, a pump that delivers hydraulic oil to the first line, a second connecting line to which the hydraulic oil is supplied from the first line, and a third connecting line to which the hydraulic oil returns from the second line, an accumulator connected to the first line, a pressure reducing valve reduces the hydraulic pressure oil introduced from the first to the second line, and a valve device discharges the oil in the first line into the third line. The second and first lines are connected only via the reducing valve. The valve device switches from not discharging to discharging the oil in the first line into the third when the pressure in the first connecting is above the first pressure.
