  • Publication number: 20190376461
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for expediting heating of an engine and an emissions device upon cold startup of the engine. In one example, a method may include prior to cold startup of an engine, operating an e-compressor and opening a recirculation valve of a recirculation passage coupled across the e-compressor to flow compressed intake air from an outlet of the e-compressor through the recirculation passage to an inlet of the e-compressor and starting the engine upon a temperature at the outlet of the e-compressor reaching a threshold and continuing to operate the e-compressor while the engine is on. The heated intake air resulting from the flow of compressed intake air through the recirculation passage raises a temperature of combustion and a temperature of exhaust gas, which may decrease catalyst light-off time of the emissions device.

  • Publication number: 20190368374
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for a compressor having a variable inlet device and an active casing treatment. In one example, a system for a compressor may include a casing forming a recirculation passage surrounding an inlet passage, an active casing treatment surrounding the inlet passage and configured to selectively control gas flow through the recirculation passage, an impeller, and a variable inlet device positioned in the inlet passage upstream of the impeller and configured to selectively reduce an effective size of the impeller. The variable inlet device and the active casing treatment may be adjusted based on operating conditions in order to increase a flow range of the compressor while providing high compressor efficiency.

  • Publication number: 20190170149
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for a compressor adapted with a movable sleeve and an active casing treatment that form separate air flow chambers. In one example, a method includes flowing intake air through a casing to an impeller of a compressor, and during first conditions, actuating an actuator to adjust a movable sleeve surrounding the casing from a first position to a second position and flowing intake air through a second chamber to the impeller, the movable sleeve adjusted in both a radial direction and an axial direction via a single actuating motion of the actuator. In this way, compressor surge may be mitigated without reducing compressor efficiency at higher air flow rates.

  • Publication number: 20190170148
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for a compressor adapted with a movable sleeve and an active casing treatment that form separate air flow chambers. In one example, a method includes flowing intake air in a first direction through a casing to an impeller of a compressor, selectively flowing intake air from the casing through a first chamber in an opposite, second direction, the first chamber circumferentially surrounding the casing, and selectively flowing intake air in the first direction through a second chamber to the impeller, the second chamber circumferentially surrounding the first chamber. In this way, compressor surge may be mitigated without reducing compressor efficiency at higher air flow rates.

  • Patent number: 9356940
    Abstract: An invention is provided for system security and access based on multi-dimensional location characteristics. The invention includes collecting contextual information characterizing a specific location during a first time period utilizing a contextual data collection device (CDCD), wherein the contextual information indicates specific characteristics of the location and is collected at the location. Then, a contextual location fingerprint (CLF) is created based on the collected contextual information. In general, the CLF is a data space of values mapped over specific period of time. In operation, new contextual information is collected at a location occupied by a device to be verified during a second time period. The new contextual information then is compared to the CLF and authenticating the device fir the new contextual information is within predefined parameters of the CLF.

  • Publication number: 20050024716
    Abstract: Amplifying optical waveguide devices, which, by combining an instantaneous or nearly instantaneous gain medium with pulsed cladding-pumping can convert the multimode pump pulses to higher-brightness (even single-mode) signal pulses. The operating parameters can be carefully matched to the interaction length of the amplifying optical device to promote efficient conversion. The invention combines attractive features of cladding-pumped waveguide devices such as robustness and good thermal management properties with those of synchronously pumped devices. Thus, the pulse energy of the generated beam is not limited by the energy that can be stored in the gain medium.
