  • Publication number: 20200219686
    Abstract: A trigger element includes an actuating member of a pressure trigger for an electric switch. The pressure trigger is provided with at least one flow channel per electric pole. The at least one pole of the electric switch includes at least two switch contacts for making or breaking a current path. The switch contacts of the at least one pole of the electric switch is disconnectable via the actuating member, which can respond to a pressure that is generated by an electric arc drawn during electrodynamic recoil of the switch contacts in a separation zone of the two switch contacts. The separation zone is connectable to the actuating member via the flow channel such that the actuating member is guided from a housing of the trigger element between a neutral position and a trigger position. After the trigger position has been reached, a relief of pressure vents the pressure trigger.

The core structure may be used for casting a gas turbine engine airfoil (11). The radially outer framing channel element (134) comprises a plurality of notches (14) extending radially inwardly from the radially outer edge (124). A distal portion (144a) of the notches (140) overlaps in an axial direction with the rib-forming apertures (126) of a first axially-aligned outer row (138a). A radial height of at least one of a first and a second axially-extending passage element (148a, 148b, 150) is greater than a prevalent radial height of other axially-extending passage elements (128) in the core structure.

  • Patent number: 10705511
    Abstract: A system for implementing automation functions through abstraction layers includes a control application and an automation equipment abstraction framework executable in a runtime environment. The control application is designed to communicate with automation equipment using one or more automation functions. Each automation function comprises one or more equipment-agnostic instructions. During execution of the control application, the automation equipment abstraction framework receives an equipment-agnostic instructions and an indication of a particular unit of automation equipment. The automation equipment abstraction framework translates the equipment-agnostic instructions into equipment-specific automation instructions executable on the particular unit of automation equipment. These equipment-specific automation instructions may then be sent to the particular unit of automation equipment.

  • Patent number: 10707677
    Abstract: A differential protection method allows monitoring a three-phase transformer. Current measured values are recorded for each phase on all sides of the transformer, a phase-related formation of difference values is carried out using the current measured values from a reference side and amplitude-adjusted and phase-angle-adjusted current measured values from all other sides. An internal error is detected if a difference value exceeds a threshold value. In order to form the amplitude-adjusted and phase-angle-adjusted current measured values, the current measured values recorded for all phases are initially subjected to an amplitude adjustment and then to a phase angle adjustment. In order to allow the phase angle shift to be freely adjusted, a defined matrix equation with a defined matrix coefficient is used for the phase angle adjustment of the current measured values from the particular other side of the transformer. There is also described a differential protection device.
