  • Publication number: 20220170229
    Abstract: A groundworks method for a foundation designed to form a foundation slab for an onshore wind turbine includes: excavating in the soil a depression intended to receive, on the one hand, an anchoring means which will be used to connect the mast to the future foundation and, on the other hand, the pouring of concrete to form said foundation after setting. According to the invention, the method further comprises digging a trench at the center of the depression, placing a compressible material in this trench, covering said material with a layer of concrete and waiting for it to set. A foundation is built for a wind turbine, by pouring concrete, the central part of which does not bear on the soil or barely bears on the soil. As a result, the pressure on the soil is increased and is delimited over a peripheral annular zone situated around its central part.

  • Patent number: 11289735
    Abstract: An electrolyte composition, a method of fabricating the same, and an energy storage device with the electrolyte composition are provided. The method of fabricating an electrolyte composition has steps of: mixing a modified polyoxyethylene-based material and a siloxane-based material in a solvent to form a mixture in which a tail end of a group of the modified polyoxyethylene-based material has an amine group; and heating the mixture at a temperature ranging from 50 to 60° C. for a time ranging from 3 to 5 hours for obtaining an electrolyte composition, where the electrolyte composition is formed by bonding the amine group of the modified polyoxyethylene-based material to the siloxane-based material. The electrolyte composition enables conductive ions to conduct in an electrolyte easily.

  • Patent number: 11176788
    Abstract: A computer device for communicating an emergency notification receives an alarm notification from a detection device. The alarm notification corresponding to an alarm condition sensed by the detection device within a space. The computer device detects an alarm condition location of the alarm condition based on a detection device location of the detection device. The computer device determines an exit location of an exit to avoid the alarm condition that triggered the alarm notification. The computer device determines an egress path within the space to avoid the alarm condition based on the exit location and the alarm condition location. The computer device transmits a plurality of commands to a plurality of notification devices within the space to trigger output of an egress notification in a coordinated pattern to identify the egress path. The plurality of commands trigger audible outputs by the plurality of notification devices.

  • Patent number: 11082808
    Abstract: Techniques are described for an unbuffered multicast delivery mode representing the capability of transmitting a multicast frame within a same DTIM interval during which the multicast frame is received. In an example, a network access device determines that a first computing device is in a power saving mode. The network access device receives, during a DTIM interval while the first computing device is in the power saving mode, a multicast frame destined to a multicast MAC address. The network access device determines an association between the multicast MAC address and a device MAC address of a second computing device. The network access device sends, during the DTIM interval and based on the association, the multicast frame to the second computing device.

  • Patent number: 10990328
    Abstract: An image forming apparatus includes a switch, a receiving section, an acquisition section, a determination section, and a transition section. The receiving section receives an operation on the switch. The acquisition section acquires operation state information indicating a first operation state. The determination section determines a second operation state based on the operation state information. The second operation state differs from the first operation state. The transition section causes the image forming apparatus to transition from the first operation state to the second operation state in response to the operation on the switch. The first operation state is a state in which the image forming apparatus is operating. The second operation state is a state in which the image forming apparatus is to operate.

  • Publication number: 20200340274
    Abstract: A storage system that includes storage bins and a locking system. The locking system includes an actuation lever, pins that engage with the storage bins, and an elongated link that extends between and connects the actuation lever to the pins. The locking system is selectively movable between a locked position with the actuation lever in a first position and the pins engaged with the storage bins to prevent the storage bins from moving from the closed position, and an unlocked position with the actuation lever in a second position and the pins disengaged from the storage bins to allow the storage bins to move between the open and closed positions.
