Conventional hydraulic cylinders are simulated in FLUENT. Singh, "Derivation of design requirements for optimization of a high performance hydrostatic actuation system," International Journal of Fluid Power, vol.
Results show that the small outlet ports are the sources of energy loss in hydraulic cylinders.

Palmberg, "Separate controls of meter-in and meter-out orifices in mobile hydraulic systems," SAE transactions, vol.
The small sized outlet ports of the cylinders resist the flow of discharged oil; and as a result the piston motion is slowed down.
This causes a lot of heat generation and energy loss within the actuators.
