  • Patent number: 8571830
    Abstract: A system, method and computer program product for predicting collector flashover is disclosed. The method includes receiving a frame of measured data from a data acquisition system, fitting a statistical model to the measured data wherein the measured data includes a plurality of measured variables measured at multiple time instances. The statistical model and the measured data are used for estimating one or more parameters for the frame wherein the one or more parameters include at least one of field circuit impedance and field current noise. A flashover is predicted based, at least in part, upon the one or more estimated parameter for the frame.

  • Patent number: 8261277
    Abstract: A system for dynamically allocating resources in a computing grid is provided. The system comprises a resource management component, a service level agreement (SLA) management component and a job scheduling component. The resource management component is configured to determine availability of a set of resources in a computing grid, for executing job requests submitted by users of the computing grid. The SLA management component is configured to manage service level agreements (SLAs) corresponding to the users and perform a negotiation of resources for the users submitting the job requests, in real-time, based on a resource steerability attribute associated with the job requests. The job-scheduling component is configured to schedule the job requests for the users, based on the resource steerability attribute associated with the job requests. The job requests comprise at least one of a job having batch characteristics and a job having interactive characteristics.

  • Publication number: 20070050288
    Abstract: A system for integrating business risk and marketing objectives into a unified business strategy for providing credit to one or more members of a target population is provided. The system comprises a database comprising risk data and marketing data associated with the members of the target population and a scoring model that receives the risk data and the marketing data from the database. The scoring model generates a set of risk scores and a set of marketing scores associated with the members of the target population over a range of additional credit that could be provided to the members of the target population. The system further comprises a network model and an optimization model. The network model collectively uses the risk scores and the marketing scores from the scoring model and generates a probability distribution of expected use of the credit over the range of additional credit that could be provided to the target population.
