  • Publication number: 20190331117
    Abstract: A well service pump system supplies high pressure working fluid to a well. The pump system is a linear design which incorporates an electric motor, a variable frequency drive (VFD), a pump drive, closed loop variable flow rate hydraulic pumps, hydraulic ram cylinders, working fluid end cylinders, and a coupling to connect the hydraulic ram cylinders and the working fluid end cylinders. The electric motor powers the hydraulic system which, in turn, provides hydraulic fluid to operate the hydraulic ram cylinders. The VFD is connected to a single one of the hydraulic pumps at a time and applies power to the connected pump, via the pump drive, to drive the connected pump from a cold start to an operating speed. The VFD is connected sequentially, one pump at a time, to each of the hydraulic pumps and disconnected from each pump once the pump reaches the operating speed. Once the pump reaches operating speed, the pump is connected to receive power directly to the electric motor.

  • Publication number: 20190330923
    Abstract: A well service pump system supplies high pressure working fluid to a well. The pump system includes a closed-loop hydraulic circuit for actuating a plurality of working pump assemblies. The pump system is powered by a motor, which transfers mechanical energy to a plurality of pumps, which, in turn, provide hydraulic fluid to operate hydraulic ram cylinders, and thereby operate the working pump assemblies. Each of the polished rods of the hydraulic ram cylinders is connected axially to a plunger rod end of the working fluid end cylinder to operate the working pump assembly.

  • Publication number: 20190331110
    Abstract: A well service pump system for supplying working fluid to a well, the pump system having structural joint coupled to and extending between the housing of a hydraulic ram cylinder and the housing of a working fluid end cylinder that maintains the distance between the housings and stabilizes the housings relative to one another without interfering with the operation of the pump system. The structural joint further permits the use of minimal supporting structures for securing the hydraulic ram cylinder and working fluid end cylinder to a surface, such as the bed of a trailer.

  • Publication number: 20190250818
    Abstract: Data in a storage system is deduplicated after receiving from at least one writing entity requests for a plurality of write operations for a corresponding plurality of data blocks in a storage object. The received blocks are buffered and sorted in order and a sequence of clumps is created from the buffered blocks, where each clump comprises a grouping of at least one of the sorted, buffered blocks. A boundary is determined between at least one pair of clumps based at least in part on the content of at least one of the buffered blocks, and it is then determined whether at least one of the clumps is a duplicate of a previously stored clump.

  • Patent number: 10359945
    Abstract: A data storage system has a plurality of hosts that request writes of data to a relatively high-performance storage device (RHPSD) such as NVRAM, which may be one of a plurality of RHPSDs in a plurality of storage nodes. A storage management system receives the write requests and writes received data to the RHPSD. According to an allocation policy, the storage management system indicates to at least one of the hosts that it should limit its use of RHPSD and it then discards data upon indication from that host to do so. Before being discarded from the RHPSD, the data may be written to a persistent storage device.

  • Patent number: 10073711
    Abstract: A host computer has a virtualization software that supports execution of a plurality of virtual machines, where the virtualization software includes a virtual machine monitor for each of the virtual machines, and where each virtual machine monitor emulates a virtual central processing unit (CPU) for a corresponding virtual machine. A virtual machine monitor halts execution of a virtual CPU of a virtual machine by receiving a first halt instruction from a corresponding virtual machine and determining whether the virtual machine is latency sensitive. If the virtual machine is latency sensitive, then a second halt instruction is issued from the virtual machine monitor to halt a physical CPU on which the virtual CPU executes. If the virtual machine is not latency sensitive, then a system call to a kernel executing on the host computer is executed to indicate to the kernel that the virtual CPU is in an idle state.

  • Patent number: 10061610
    Abstract: A host computer has one or more physical central processing units (CPUs) that support the execution of a plurality of containers, where the containers each include one or more processes. Each process of a container is assigned to execute exclusively on a corresponding physical CPU when the corresponding container is determined to be latency sensitive. The assignment of a process to execute exclusively on a corresponding physical CPU includes the migration of tasks from the corresponding physical CPU to one or more other physical CPUs of the host system, and the directing of task and interrupt processing to the one or more other physical CPUs. Tasks of of the process corresponding to the container are then executed on the corresponding physical CPU.
