  • Publication number: 20040044442
    Abstract: An optimized dispatch plan generator for generating an optimized dispatch plan for distributed resources in electrical power systems is based on economic and engineering considerations. The dispatch plan generator comprises several subsystems preferably including an energy management subsystem, an energy trading subsystem, an asset management subsystem, a reliability subsystem and a network analysis subsystem integrated with multiple artificial intelligence agents in one embodiment and with a module employing probabilistic techniques in another embodiment. The dispatch plan generator generates one or more solutions identifying the optimal mix and use of distributed resources and also generates a set of reports and graphs for the optimized solution plan.

  • Publication number: 20040030457
    Abstract: Dispatching schemes for distributed resources involve decisions made at a central location and control orders are transmitted to one or more distributed resources by a communications network. Distributed resources include demand and supply side resources that can be deployed within a distribution and sub-transmission system. Demand side resources include demand side or load management or energy efficiency options while supply side resources include generation sources, including photovoltaics, reciprocating engines, micro turbines, fuel cells, etc.

  • Publication number: 20040027004
    Abstract: Dispatching schemes for distributed resources involve decisions made locally with respect to a distributed resource. A distributed resource preferably has an intelligent component associated with it. The intelligent component associated with the distributed resource is preferably pre-programmed with one or more dispatching scenarios. Distributed resources include demand and supply side resources that can be deployed within a distribution and sub-transmission system. Demand side resources include demand side or load management or energy efficiency options while supply side resources include generation sources, including photovoltaics, reciprocating engines, micro turbines, fuel cells, etc.

  • Publication number: 20040024494
    Abstract: Dispatching schemes for distributed resources involve decisions made both at a central location and at the local level with respect to a distributed resource. To handle cases in which a decision made at the central location and a decision made at the local level conflict, a set of rules preferably determines the priority of control. A distributed resource preferably has an intelligent component associated with it. The intelligent component associated with the distributed resource is preferably pre-programmed with one or more dispatching scenarios. Distributed resources include demand and supply side resources that can be deployed within a distribution and sub-transmission system. Demand side resources include demand side or load management or energy efficiency options while supply side resources include generation sources, including photovoltaics, reciprocating engines, micro turbines, fuel cells, etc.

  • Patent number: 5925201
    Abstract: In accordance with exemplary embodiments of the present invention, significant time reduction in the assembly of a conductive transmission line is achieved by using a novel assembly process to adhesively bond sleeves having adhesive channels formed therein to a hollow conductor. Exemplary embodiments are quick, easy and avoid any need to reexamine the inner conductor and components attached thereto for imperfections.

  • Patent number: 4699573
    Abstract: Fluid-cooled electrical apparatus characterized by a new and improved pump for circulating the fluid within the apparatus. The pump has a motor portion in fluid communication with a pump portion, non-electrically conductive bearings supporting a common shaft between the two portions. The bearings being comprised of a polyamideimide thermoplastic resin.

  • Patent number: 4240992
    Abstract: The finely-divided particles of a selected phosphor material are combined with an aqueous solution of a suitable binder material to form an emulsion which is spread uniformly on the smooth surface of a support member. The wet coating is then heated to remove the water and the resulting film is sintered to produce a strong, continuous film. The film is then peeled from the support member resulting in a uniformly thick sheet of phosphor and binder from which dosimeters can be cut or stamped to any desired size.

  • Patent number: 4120913
    Abstract: A composition, which is suitable for use as an adhesive, is made by mixing: (A) liquid epoxy resin and a stoichiometric excess of aromatic amine and (B) a reactive solid epoxy resin powder having an average particle size of from about 10 microns to about 420 microns, the mixture being capable of melting at temperatures of over about 60.degree. C; wherein solid epoxy (B) is mixed with a liquid mixture of epoxy-amine (A) the components of (A) form a solid reaction product adduct after addition of epoxy (B), the epoxy of (B) remains unreacted until melting of the composition, and the weight ratio of solid epoxy resin:adduct is from about 1 to 6:1.
