The most effective methods of organizing construction work are complex mechanization and automation of construction. Complex mechanization allows selecting the machines participating in the construction process according to their productivity. In this regard, it is necessary to take into account the structural features of construction machines that affect the overall pace of work. In order to shorten the cycle time, the design of a modern excavator’s hydraulic system ensures the combined operation of two degrees of mobility in pairs: platform-boom, boom-arm, and arm-bucket. When designing and creating a system for automatic control of excavator actuating mechanisms, it is necessary to take into account the interrelation and mutual influence of hydraulic drives when working together from a source of limited power, the pump station of an excavator. Such a time combination of operations is possible when carrying out transportation to move the bucket to load and unload, while soil excavation is performed by turning the handle or bucket, and in these conditions, a large load of the feeding power station does not allow combining these operations. The paper presents a structural diagram of the concurrent operation of two hydraulic excavator actuators, which reflects the existence of connections between the hydraulic motors of the actuators.
