Let's assume that mass conservation is fulfilled, and,
hence the plunger velocity can approach infinity,
when
(under constant ).
The hydraulic piston also has to move with the same
velocity, .
Yet, according to the machine characteristic the driving pressure,
approaches zero
.
Therefore, the energy supply to the system is approaching zero.
Yet, energy obtained from the system is infinite since jet is inject in infinite
velocity and finite flow rate.
This cannot exist in our world or perhaps one can proof the opposite.
