  • Publication number: 20240161644
    Abstract: Various embodiments include computer-aided systems and methods for training a user in conducting negotiations. An example method includes: providing data of a first type using recordings of real or virtual negotiations of one or more users with of one or more recording devices after corresponding computer-aided processing; and communicating the data of a first type to an artificial intelligence for generating data of a second and a third type. Data of a second and a third type are presented on an output device, which give the user a conception of the AI-calculated reaction and/or consequence of the user's recorded negotiation, subsequently and also in real time, during the ongoing negotiation.

  • Publication number: 20240160813
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method is disclosed for automatically tuning a digital twin of a physical system (302) that utilizes a physics-based model (304) of the physical system (302). The method uses a trained mapping (308) between a physics-based parameter set of the physics-based model (304) and a filter coefficient set of an adaptive filter (306) applied to the physical system (302). An adaptive filtering-based approach is used to update the filter coefficient set at discrete time steps based on an error between an output signal measured from the physical system (302) in response to an input signal and an output response computed by the physics-based model (304) for the same input signal. The trained mapping (308) is then used to determine updated parameter values in the physics-based parameter set from the updated filter coefficient set. The method may be used to adapt a digital twin simulation at runtime to closely match the behavior of a physical system (302).

  • Publication number: 20240154476
    Abstract: A rotor of a rotatory permanently excited synchronous machine includes a magnetically conductive body having recesses, each designed with a pocket for receiving permanent magnets. Flux barriers are arranged at opposed ends of the pockets. In a region between the pockets and the flux barriers for increasing an opposing field stability are holding elements on the ends of the pockets to assist in positioning and fixing of the permanent magnets in the pockets, with the holding elements having at least one section to form the pockets and designed on an air-gap side of the pockets such as to counteract an irreversible demagnetization of the permanent magnets in the pockets and to maintain a protective function for the permanent magnets in the event of a fault such as a sudden short-circuit of the permanently excited synchronous machine. Sheet metal webs are arranged between the recesses of a pole of the rotor.
