  • Patent number: 10941635
    Abstract: An exemplary embodiment includes a system to determine which wells provide input volumes to gas processing plants using a mixed-integer programming (MIP) model. The system uses a balanced approach to model all plants and wells within a basin simultaneously. The model utilizes multiple publically available data sources including well production data, plant inlet data, and GIS data. The full implementation provides at minimum a tenfold time improvement over the previously used manual techniques while increasing overall model quality.

  • Publication number: 20210051220
    Abstract: An electronic device includes a first device housing and a second device housing. A hinge couples the first device housing to the second device housing. The first device housing is pivotable about the hinge relative to the second device housing. The hinge separates a first chamber defined by the first device housing and a second chamber defined by the second device housing. A flexible substrate passes through the first chamber and the second chamber. The flexible substrate spans the hinge, either by passing through or around a hinge housing. The flexible substrate deforms to a curvilinear deformed state within one or both of the first chamber or the second chamber when the first device housing and the second device housing pivot about the hinge from a closed position to an axially displaced open position.

  • Patent number: 10861057
    Abstract: A method and system for controlling real-time bidding for online advertisements is disclosed. According to one embodiment, a computer-implemented method comprises communicating with a bidder and an impression server and an event tracking server. The bidder receives a real-time bidding (RTB) request containing an available impression from an exchange and places a bid corresponding to the RTB request. The impression server receives impression requests from a browser and responds to the impression requests from the browser. The event tracking server receives event requests from the browser and responds to event requests from the browser. Campaign performance data is retrieved from one or more of the impression server and the event tracking server and compared to the campaign target. The bidder is notified whether to bid for online advertisement impressions based on the campaign performance data.
