  • Publication number: 20220143315
    Abstract: A method for extending the storage lifetime of a battery located in a device is disclosed. The battery lifetime extension method includes providing a device that derives its power from a rechargeable battery. The method further includes providing a rechargeable battery that is capable of communicating with the device. When the device is powered off by a user, a computer implemented program utilized by the device communicates with the battery and automatically powers up the device into a lower power mode upon expiration of a variable duration timer monitored by the computing unit that continuously repeats according to the programed duration cycle, evaluates the state of charge of the rechargeable battery, determines whether the state of charge of the rechargeable battery is above or below a variable programed threshold, and communicates a command to the rechargeable battery to remain in a low power state until a charge is applied to the rechargeable battery.

  • Publication number: 20220143348
    Abstract: A patient interface assembly includes a flexible cushion with a nares sealing portion configured to sealingly engage the patient's nares and a mouth sealing portion configured to seal around the patient's mouth. A cushion clip is attached to the flexible cushion, forms at least part of a plenum chamber with the flexible cushion, and is more rigid than the flexible cushion. A frame is attached to the cushion clip, is more rigid than the flexible cushion. A superior portion of the frame extends beyond the mouth sealing portion in the superior direction to overlap at least a part of the pair of lateral nares engagement portions of the nares sealing portion. At least a part of the nares sealing portion of the flexible cushion is decoupled from both the cushion clip and the superior portion of the frame that overlaps the nares sealing portion so that the lateral nares engagement portions are movable independently of the frame and the cushion clip.

  • Publication number: 20220137118
    Abstract: A system and method are provided for operating a power generating asset. Accordingly, a controller detects a fault condition impacting the power generating asset. The controller then determines whether the fault condition is occurring in the power generating asset or is occurring in the power grid. When the fault condition is occurring in the power generating asset, a first response control scheme is implemented. However, when the fault condition is occurring in the power grid, a second response control scheme is implemented. The response control schemes include a first current threshold and a second current threshold respectively, with first current threshold being less than the second current threshold. Additionally, a control action is implemented in response to an approach of a current to the respective current threshold.
