  • Publication number: 20240062956
    Abstract: An assembly for manufacturing the insulation layer of a Thomson coil includes a base plate, a coil housing, and a cover plate. The base plate securely seats the coil housing, and the coil housing securely seats a Thomson coil and the cover plate. The cover plate has several ribs that hold multiple turns of a Thomson coil in place while epoxy is applied to the coil, thus ensuring that the epoxy is evenly distributed on the coil surface and that the coil windings remain level. The cover plate and coil housing are structured to either receive a high-pressure epoxy injection or to be used in an epoxy potting process, during which all exposed areas of the Thomson coil are coated by liquid epoxy. After the epoxy has solidified, the Thomson coil is coupled to the coil housing, and the housed and insulated Thomson coil is removed from the assembly.

  • Publication number: 20240059163
    Abstract: Embodiments of an electric vehicle (EV) charging system for implementation in structures that house electric vehicles, such as warehouses or parking structures, are disclosed. The EV charging system can be overhead mounted from a building's ceiling, using cable tray for electrical power distribution and an integrated EV charger mounting system, thus eliminating the risk of EV cables and charging handles being dropped on floor areas. The disclosed ceiling mountable system is especially advantageous for electric vehicle fleet charging applications and multi-level parking lot applications, as the disclosed system enables simplification and lowest-total-installed-cost in comparison to traditional ground-mounted EV charging systems and related electrical infrastructure.

  • Patent number: 11905949
    Abstract: A groove is applied to one or more contact surfaces of a journal bearing of a pump to increase a force applied to the contact surface(s). Each groove has an end exposed to discharge pressure of the pump so that the groove communicates the discharge pressure across the contact surface. The groove reduces an area of the contact surface over which fluid leakage results in a pressure differential, thereby increasing a net force applied to the contact surface. Applying the groove to the axial end face of the journal bearing enhances an axial force applied to the journal bearing whereas applying the groove to a radially facing land reduces friction between the journal bearing and the outer housing.

  • Publication number: 20240049407
    Abstract: A pedestal has two sides that are opposite one another and to which various charging boxes can be mounted and electrically connected. For instance, the pedestal can have the same charging boxes mounted to the two sides and electrically connected with a power system upon which the pedestal is positioned. Instead, two different charging boxes can be mounted to the two sides. Importantly, either or both charging boxes can be easily removed by appropriate personnel and alternatively replaced with other charging boxes if, for instance, the market for needing specific electrical charging has changed or if the population of electrical vehicles needing electrical charging has grown in a new direction, by way of example.
