  • Patent number: 12034493
    Abstract: Mismatch detection using periodic structures is provided. Embodiments described herein can measure and detect mismatch between two loads in a radio frequency (RF) system without the need for external calibration by referencing their measurements into a small set of parameters that are intrinsic to the RF system design. This approach can be used to compare impedances of two loads and measure their impedances relative to each other without requiring any external calibration (e.g., the approach does not assume any prior known physical quantities in the system, such as a reference impedance). This approach can be used to compare the two loads to each other, as well as to quantify the amount of mismatch between these loads by calculating reflection coefficient between the loads. Loads can be passive devices, such as antennas, or they can be active devices, such as amplifiers.

  • Patent number: 12030909
    Abstract: Provided herein are affinity reagents having affinity for particular target, each reagent having a unique DNA barcode, and methods for using the same to measure the abundance of targets in a sample. In particular, methods are provided in which unique barcodes linked to affinity reagents are contacted to a sample to bind antigens if present in said sample. In cases in which the affinity reagents are antibodies and the targets are antigens, antibodies that are bound to their target antigens can be separated from unbound antibodies and the DNA barcode associated with the affinity reagent is amplified, such as with a PCR reaction. In some cases, amplified barcode DNA is subjected to DNA sequencing as a measure of the levels of the target protein in the sample.

  • Publication number: 20240213773
    Abstract: A system applies optimal peak-clipping (PC) and load-shifting (LS) control strategies of a Li-ion BESS at a large industrial facility with and without enrollment in the electrical utility company's event-based DR program. The optimally sized BESSs and discounted payback periods are determined for both control strategies with and without event-based DR enrollment. Additional optimization can be performed to reduce an environmental impact of using the BESS. Comparisons between the PC and LS control strategies' operations show that for the same sized Li-ion BESS with DR enrollment, the LS control strategy achieves more revenue in DR events and by leveraging the energy-price arbitrage.

  • Publication number: 20240211730
    Abstract: A computer-implemented framework (MacroNet) automatically identifies macroscale behaviors in complex systems and samples specific instances that exhibit the behavior. Applied to complex systems, this allows an automated method for identifying predictive regularities in data via dimensionality reduction to just a few variables (macrostates), that also then allows the capability to design a new system outside the original training data that exhibits the same macroscale behavior. The framework enables automated discovery of macroscale descriptions of complex systems, design of systems that have the specified macroscale description by sampling microstates consistent with the identified macrostates, and predicting behaviors at the macroscale when accurate predictions for specific systems are not possible.

  • Publication number: 20240213778
    Abstract: A system for accurate secondary network topology geographic information system (GIS) coordinates correction provides a more accurate feeder topology for utilities to estimate and operate distribution systems by assigning the load and distributed energy resources (DER) nodes to their corresponding customer location. To simplify the complexity of the system, only two commonly available inputs are being used as input data: municipal parcel GIS delimitation data, and utility secondary feeder topology database. The system includes a three-stage framework: the first stage reads and processes the raw input data; the second stage works automatically with no human intervention to assign the load and DER nodes to their associated location; the third stage provides the load and DER coordinates and physical address.
