What is a hydrostatic system?

Hydrostatic systems take the mechanical rotary output of an engine or electric motor and convert it to a hydraulic source of power using a hydraulic pump. The hydraulic power is converted back to mechanical power using a hydraulic motor

What is the difference between hydraulic pressure and hydrostatic pressure?

Hydrostatic pressure is the pressure of a "standing liquid" and hydraulic pressure is the pressure in a fluid system that is being acted on by a compressor or pump. Let's look more closely. Let's say we're on a boat on the ocean and we slide over the side and into the water. We can feel the water pressure on us. As we move deeper into the water, that is, we dive deeper, the hydrostatic pressure increases. If we took ping pong balls with us as we dove deeper, they'd eventually be crushed by hydrostatic pressure. The pressure can be looked at as the weight of the water column (due to its height) on whatever is submerged. In a hydraulic system, a pump pressurizes the system to some level set by the controller and the safety (pressure release) systems. Some systems operate at pressures that are out of sight because they are so high. The hydraulic pressure is "artificial" in that a pump created it, and hydrostatic pressure is "natural" and is created by the weight of the column of the liquid creating it.
