The paper brings to evidence the effect that geometry of the stator ring of variable displacement radial pumps bears on performance characteristics of these units. The type of motion of the stator ring (linear or rotational), the location of the centre of rotation, the porting plate integral with the casing or with the stator ring all have remarkable effects on the pump steady state and dynamic performance. At steady state, an influence exists on the attainable minimum displacement and on the deviation of discharge pressure from the desired setting when displacement is being controlled. In turn, dynamic performance is affected by changes in port plate timing as stator position and displacement undergo transitions. Specific attention is then committed to variable displacement vane pumps for internal combustion engines lubrication where an additional and foremost effect is investigated concerning the issues entailed by internal forces distribution on the stator ring that originate from incomplete chambers filling at high rotational pump speed.
