  • Publication number: 20220252039
    Abstract: A nonlinear control design technique capitalizes on a wave energy converter comprising a shaped buoy having a variable geometry wave energy. For example, the shaped buoy can have an hourglass (HG) geometry having a variable cone or steepness angle. The HG buoy is assumed to operate in the heave motion of the wave. The unique interaction between the HG buoy and the wave creates a nonlinear cubic storage effect that produces actual energy storage or reactive power during operation. A multi-frequency Bretschneider spectrum wave excitation input was simulated for the HG design both with constant and varying steepness angle profiles which demonstrated further increased power generation with changing sea states for the variable design.

  • Patent number: 11378048
    Abstract: A prime mover for a lightweight vehicle comprising an internal combustion engine, a starter motor integrally integrated with the internal combustion engine, and a housing for the prime mover. The prime mover additionally comprises a Hall Effect sensor and an prime mover control module structured and operable to communicate with the Hall Effect sensor, determine when operation of the internal combustion engine should cease, and upon the determination that operation of the internal combustion engine should cease, utilize the communication from the Hall Effect sensor to stop the internal combustion engine such that a piston of the internal combustion engine is positioned at between 15° and 25° after bottom-dead-center.

  • Patent number: 9312035
    Abstract: An emergency temporary spent fuel pool cooling system for a nuclear power generating facility that has a permanently installed primary loop within the nuclear containment and a mobile temporary secondary loop. The secondary loop is housed in transport vehicles that can be stored off site and is connectable in heat exchange relationship with the primary loop through quick disconnect couplings that are accessible on the outside of the reactor containment. The transport vehicles also include self-contained power and compressed air sources for powering and controlling the entire emergency cooling system. The system also has a make-up water injection capability for refueling the spent fuel pool and secondary loop.

  • Publication number: 20140323984
    Abstract: A hand-actuated injector (10) includes a handle assembly (200) for providing discharge and aspiration strokes for a plunger (108). The handle assembly (200) includes first and second scissor-like handle members (204, 212) that provide a discharge stroke for the plunger (108) when manipulated in a first manner, and an aspiration stroke for the plunger (108) when manipulated in an opposite, second manner. The handle assembly (200) also includes a meshed-gear locking mechanism or hinge (248) that selectively prevents or at least limits relative movement between the first and second handle members (204, 212) in a manner that is associated with providing an aspiration stroke for the plunger (108).

  • Patent number: 8864675
    Abstract: An improved catheter is provided. The catheter may include a deflectable member located at a distal end of a catheter body. The deflectable member may comprise an ultrasound transducer array. The deflectable member may be interconnected to the catheter body by a live hinge. The catheter may include a lumen extending from a proximal end of the catheter body to the distal end. The lumen may be used to deliver an interventional device to a point distal to the distal end of the catheter body. The deflectable member may be selectively deflectable in a pivot-like manner through an arc of at least 90 degrees. In embodiments where the deflectable member includes an ultrasound transducer array, the ultrasound transducer array may be operable to image both when aligned with the catheter body and when pivoted relative to the catheter body.

  • Patent number: 8633461
    Abstract: In one characterization, the present invention relates to a radiation-shielding assembly for holding a container having a radioactive material disposed therein. The assembly may, at least in one regard, be referred to as an elution shield and/or a dispensing shield. The assembly includes a body at least partially defining a cavity. There is at least one opening through the body into the cavity. The assembly may include a cap that at least generally hinders escape of radiation from the assembly through the opening. The cap may be releasably attached to the body in one orientation and may establish non-attached engagement with the body in another orientation. The assembly may include an adjustable spacer system for adapting the assembly for use with containers having different heights.
