  • Publication number: 20220195871
    Abstract: A downhole PVT tool for performing in-situ formation fluid phase behavior characterizations in a wellbore using pressure, volume, and temperature (PVT) measurements of the formation fluid while continuing to pump the formation fluids. The disclosed downhole PVT tool includes an intake mandrel and utilizes two individual pumps to split the formation fluid to perform PVT measurements during the fluid pump out. The downhole PVT tool, two-pump configuration permits a first pump to be used to pump formation fluid along a first flowpath and a second pump to be used to pump formation fluid along a second flowpath, with one or more sensors deployed along one of the flowpaths to perform fluid and/or gas phase behavior measurements to determine one or more properties of the formation fluid in-situ. The first pump may be utilized in the phase behavior analysis while the second pump simultaneously continues flow-through pumping of the formation fluid.

  • Publication number: 20220128391
    Abstract: A mobile fuel monitoring system (MMU) is disclosed. The fuel monitoring system may be skid mounted and is configured to monitor fuel transfers between a fuel source and a vessel, such as a ship. The disclosed MMU is a stand-alone, self-contained unit that can be easily moved from place to place. The MMU is configured to monitor and remotely report custody transfers of fuel performed at any location. Parameters of the fuel transfer operation, such as the amount of fuel transferred, the flow rate, the fuel density, and fuel temperature can be monitored and alarms may be issued if any of the parameters are out of specification. The parameter values may be transmitted to a remote location, for example, via a satellite link.

  • Patent number: 11269901
    Abstract: A cognitive test advisor facility is provided to identify repair action recommendations. The facility receives a user input regarding a test failure, and generates an expanded search input by identifying additional, alternative words for the user input. A database(s) is searched for test failure records relevant to keywords of the expanded search input, and relevant test failure records are prioritized using a relationship strength score based, at least in part, on relationship of the test failure records to the expanded search input. The facility detects test failure records from the searching having a relationship strength score higher than a threshold value, and analyzes the detected test failure records to identify potential test repair actions. Based on the analyzing, the facility generates a solution priority list including one or more suggested test repair actions for the test failure, and provides the solution priority list to the user.

  • Publication number: 20220057018
    Abstract: A microfabricated valve with no moving parts. In one embodiment, the valve includes a reservoir of a liquid that is in fluid communication with an outlet channel having a throat that is less than 100 microns wide. Preferably, the channel is an elongated slit. The configuration of channel is adapted and configured such that surface tension of the liquid prevents flow out of the channel. A heater increases the temperature of the meniscus of the fluid, until a portion of the fluid is ejected from the channel. The ejection of the fluid creates both a thrusting effect and a cooling effect.

  • Publication number: 20210326704
    Abstract: A method for training an artificial intelligence (AI) model for allowing a user to intuitively control an electronic device includes positioning a plurality of sensors at a plurality of particular positions on a human body for sensing electric signals. The method also includes recording a first set of electric signals from each of the plurality of sensors in a continuous manner. At the same time, a first set of motion intents associated with a first sequence of body movement is also recorded in a continuous manner. An AI regression model is trained using a neural network to map the first set of electric signals to the first set of motion intents. In response to receiving a second set of electric signals from the plurality of sensors in a continuous manner, the AI regression model predicts a motion intent, causing the electronic device to perform an action.

  • Publication number: 20210302716
    Abstract: The disclosed discrete or continuous optical delay is a medium with high transmission, a high index of refraction and a low dispersion coefficient at the wavelength of light of interest. One side of the medium, orthogonal to the incident light, is fabricated to delay the light at discrete values in a periodic pattern that repeats as the optical delay rotates. The disclosed discrete or continuous optical delay enables the creation of compact interferometry equipment to be used outside a laboratory environment.
