  • Publication number: 20240072696
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method of monitoring and/or controlling an electro-mechanical device, such as an electrical motor and/or generator, includes determining a first probability distribution of a virtual measurement variable, such as temperature at a predetermined position, of the electro-mechanical device. A confidence level is determined for a first value of the virtual measurement variable based on the first probability distribution. An operating mode of the electro-mechanical device is changed based on the confidence level, and/or an indication is displayed on a display. The indication instructs a user to change the operating mode of the electro-mechanical device.

  • Publication number: 20210220604
    Abstract: A valve arrangement (1) for a fluid carrying system (18, 21). This fluid-carrying system (18, 21) is capable of establishing a fluid connection between a patient-side coupling unit (26, 27) and a ventilator (17). In an open position a shut-off unit (7) connects a patient-side port (3) to a device-side port (4) of the valve arrangement (1) and closes this fluid connection in a closed position. A locking unit is capable of locking the shut-off unit in both the open position and the closed position. When the shut-off unit is in the closed position and, in addition, a pressure above a preset pressure limit is present at the patient-side port, the shut-off unit is moved into the open position automatically and against a locking effect of the locking unit. A process for operating a ventilation system (2) with the ventilator and the valve arrangement is also provided.
