Hydraulic switching converters control a hydraulic state, such as pressure or flow rate, by the frequent switching of on-
off valves in combination with some hydraulic inductance element and means to flatten pulsation due to switching. In nearly all
modern versions of such converters the switching is provoked by electrically actuated valves. The historically first of such converters,
Montgolfier?s hydraulic ram, used a hydraulic feedback mechanism, because of lacking electrically controlled valves in his time. To
make use of the significant cost advantage of pure hydraulic control, authors studied a concept for a buck converter for pressure control
based on a specific feedback mechanism. In a theoretical analysis it turned out that this system exhibits a clustering of switching
activities in certain operation domains which causes a bad pressure control performance. This paper analyses the essential inner
mechanisms responsible for the operational performance and shows how to efficiently calculate approximate stability bounds in state
space by using reduction methods.
