  • Publication number: 20200340971
    Abstract: Systems and methods for monitoring a crude oil blending process use nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) sensors which investigate properties of a plurality of crude oil streams that are mixed together to form a crude oil blend. An NMR sensor is also used to investigate the properties of the crude oil blend. The investigated properties may include viscosity. Resulting determinations may be used to control the input streams so that the output stream meets desired criteria. Additional sensors such as spectroscopy sensors, viscometers, and densitometers may be used in conjunction with the NMR sensors.

  • Patent number: 10801940
    Abstract: A low energy particle detection device comprises alight source, multiple photodetectors positioned at different scattering angles, and a microcontroller for computing a total mass concentration of fine and ultrafine particles and a mass fraction of ultrafine particles to fine particles in an incoming air particle airflow based on the ratio of the readings from the multiple photodetectors. The optical particle detection device also can determine surface area concentration of the air particle sample and the associated lung deposited surface area (LDSA) to measure and improve estimates of air quality.

  • Publication number: 20200318537
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for controlling operation of an engine of a vehicle to supply power to a power box that in turn supplies power to loads external to the vehicle. In one example, a method comprises, responsive to a request by an operator to operate an engine to power one or more loads external to the vehicle, monitoring an engine temperature and issuing an alert requesting the operator to take mitigating action to reduce the engine temperature when the engine temperature reaches a threshold temperature, and controlling a cooling fan as a function of whether or not the mitigating action is taken. In this way, fuel economy may be improved and power supply to power external loads may be optimized.

  • Publication number: 20200284676
    Abstract: A pressure sensor includes a conductive substrate having a cavity which forms a thin portion that can be deformed by a pressure differential. A magnetic field sensor has at least one coil responsive to a changing coil drive signal and positioned proximate to the thin portion of the substrate that induces eddy currents in the thin portion that generate a reflected magnetic field. Magnetic field sensing elements detect the reflected magnetic field and generate a magnetic field signal. The magnetic field sensor is positioned so that deformation of the thin portion of the substrate causes a distance between the thin portion of the substrate and the magnetic field sensor to change.
