  • Patent number: 11173426
    Abstract: Devices, systems, and methods are disclosed to separate solids from liquids. A vessel includes a screw, an inlet, a first outlet, and a second outlet. The inlet receives a first slurry having an incoming solids concentration. The first slurry consists of solids and a contact liquid. The first outlet is disposed toward the first end of the vessel. The second outlet is disposed toward a second end of the vessel. The screw preferentially conveys the solids over the contact liquid towards the second end of the vessel, the solids displacing at least a portion of the contact liquid, causing that portion of the contact liquid to flow toward the first outlet. A melting device is included.

  • Patent number: 11148551
    Abstract: A first dispenser receives a request to initiate charging service for charging an electric vehicle. The first dispenser determines an amount of power that is available for the charging service for charging the electric vehicle including determining an availability status of multiple power modules that are located in the first dispenser and a second dispenser. The first dispenser determines whether the available amount of power is enough to meet a requested or determined amount of power draw of the electric vehicle. If the available amount of power is not enough to meet the requested or determined amount of power draw of the electric vehicle, and if there is at least one of the power modules that is available, the first dispenser requests allocation of the available power module and charging service commences.

  • Patent number: 11135940
    Abstract: Dynamic allocation of power modules for charging electric vehicles is described herein. The charging system includes multiple dispensers that each include one or more power modules that can supply power to any one of the dispensers at a time. A dispenser includes a first power bus that is switchably connected to one or more local power modules and switchably connected to one or more power modules located remotely in another dispenser. The one or more local power modules are switchably connected to a second power bus in the other dispenser. The dispenser includes a control unit that is to cause the local power modules and the remote power modules to switchably connect and disconnect from the first power bus to dynamically allocate the power modules between the dispenser and the other dispenser.

  • Publication number: 20210238007
    Abstract: A cable reel includes a spool to extend and retract a cable that includes a first conductor. The cable reel further includes a first connector that is connected with the spool and rotates in relation to the spool. The first connector includes a first contact that is connected to the first conductor of the cable. The cable reel further includes a second connector that does not rotate. The first connector and the second connector are mateable. The second connector includes a second contact that is connected to a second conductor. The first connector and the second connector automatically mate to make an electrical connection between the first conductor of the cable and the second conductor when the first connector and the second connector are aligned in a predetermined position and at least some length of cable has been extended.

  • Publication number: 20210162881
    Abstract: Electric vehicle charging stations are coupled with a circuit sharing controller. Multiple electric vehicle charging stations are wired on the same electrical circuit. The circuit sharing controller implements a circuit sharing process that dynamically allocates electric current to charging stations on the same electrical circuit such that the capacity of the electrical circuit is not exceeded while permitting each of those charging stations to draw electric current through that electrical circuit for at least some amount of time.

  • Publication number: 20210036522
    Abstract: Networked electric vehicle charging stations for charging electric vehicles are coupled with an electric vehicle charging station network server that performs authorization for charging session requests while the communication connection between the charging stations and the server are operating correctly. When the communication connection is not operating correctly, the networked electric vehicle charging stations enter into a local authorization mode to perform a local authorization process for incoming charging session requests.

  • Publication number: 20200356600
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems and methods for a compiler, which can receive a computation workload, and a description of the computation graph of the workload and compile a circuit layout of the workload. In one embodiment, an RTL generator assigns the node operations of the computation graph to a first or second type. In the first type, the workload is loaded and processed in tiles equal to a compute filter width. In the second type, the workload is loaded in tiles larger in size than the width of the compute filter, allowing the compute filter to process more operations in parallel and reach the data needed for the underlying operations more efficiently.
