  • Patent number: 10928104
    Abstract: A refrigeration system including a primary stage and a secondary stage, the primary and secondary stages being thermally coupled to one another via a first heat exchanger. The primary stage including a closed-loop CO2 refrigeration system having a primary evaporator located in a region to be cooled, a primary compressor and a water-cooled primary condenser that forms at least a part of the first heat exchanger and being water-cooled by the secondary stage. The secondary stage including a closed-loop water-based cooling system having the first heat exchanger, a pump adapted to pump cooling water around the secondary stage, and a heat sink. Temperature at the (final) heat sink of the system does not need to be maintained below the supercritical temperature of the refrigerant, thus the primary (CO2) stage is operated below its supercritical temperature-pressure regime at relatively high ambient temperatures.

  • Patent number: 10900405
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for adjusting operation of a split exhaust engine system based on a total flow of gases through a scavenge exhaust gas recirculation system of the split exhaust engine system. In one example, a method may include adjusting engine operation in response to a flow of gases to an intake passage, upstream of a compressor, from a scavenge manifold coupled to scavenge exhaust valves, the flow of gases determined based on a valve opening overlap between the scavenge exhaust valves and intake valves of an engine, the scavenge exhaust valves opened at a different time than blowdown exhaust valves coupled to a blowdown manifold coupled to a turbine.

  • Patent number: 10839327
    Abstract: A measure factory for generating analytic measures includes data sets representing business activities arranged as columnar arrays with each column being associated with a distinct source rule that applies to the column when it is used as a data source. The measure factory includes factory rules that govern which operations on available data sources may be executed under what conditions in the measure factory, such as by taking into account the source rules and other applicable factory rules. A factory rule execution hierarchy governs the execution of ready factory rules that lack dependency on other factory rules before executing ready factory rules that have dependency on other factory rules. A script generation facility generates a script to process the plurality of factory rules according to the factory rule execution hierarchy.
