  • Publication number: 20210138794
    Abstract: An electrohydrodynamic (EHD) jet printing apparatus or system may include circulation of printing fluid to minimize or eliminate clogging in a nozzle. An exemplary nozzle comprises at least two ink channels—one allowing flow to a droplet emitting opening and one allowing flow away from the droplet emitting opening—configured for circulating ink. The nozzle may transfer ink to a substrate with an EHD technique involving voltage or current modulation. For example, an electric field may be applied between the nozzle and printing substrate such that the ink meniscus changes shape and releases ink from the tip of the liquid cone. A multi-channel nozzle may take a variety of configurations, including two co-axially aligned capillaries, side-by-side parallel capillaries, or capillaries arranged at an angle with respect to one another but converging at a single point where the conical meniscus is formed.

  • Publication number: 20210116891
    Abstract: Systems and methods provide a new paradigm of Advanced Process Control that includes building and deploying APC seed models. Embodiments provide automated data cleansing and selection in model identification and adaption in multivariable process control (MPC) techniques. Rather than plant pre-testing onsite for building APC seed models, the embodiments help APC engineers to build APC seed models from existing plant historical data with self-learning automation and pattern recognition, AI techniques. Embodiments further provide “growing” and “calibrating” the APC seed models online with non-invasive closed loop step testing techniques. PID loops and associated SP, PV, and OPs are searched and identified. Only “informative moves” data is screened, identified, and selected among a long history of process variables for seed model development and MPC application.

  • Patent number: 10921759
    Abstract: Embodiments are directed to computer methods and systems that build and deploy a pattern model to detect an operating event in an online plant process. To build the pattern model, the methods and systems define a signature of the operating event, such that the defined signature contains a time series pattern for a KPI associated with the operating event. The methods and systems deploy the pattern model to automatically monitor, during online execution of the plant process, trends in movement of the KPI as a time series. The methods and systems determine, in real-time, a distance score between a range of the monitored time series and the time series pattern contained in the defined signature. The methods and systems automatically detect the operating event in the online industrial process based on the determined distance score, and alter parameters of the process (e.g., valves, actuators, etc.) to prevent the operating event.

  • Publication number: 20210041589
    Abstract: Seismic data processing may include computing the travel time shift between two seismic signals or the depth shift between two seismic images. In Full Waveform Inversion (FWI), the travel time difference between an observed trace and a simulated trace may be computed such that the two traces match after the travel time shift is applied to the observed trace. The travel time shift may be computed based on a constrained optimization that maximizes the windowed cross-correlation between the two seismic traces by constraining the time derivative of the travel time shift to be less than a constant while maximizing the windowed cross-correlation. Further, the travel time shift may be computed during the model line search in FWI by computing a plurality of travel time shifts where a first travel time shift is dependent on the observed trace and a second travel time shift is independent of the observed trace.

  • Publication number: 20200387818
    Abstract: System and methods that provide a new paradigm for solving process system engineering (PSE) problems using embedded artificial intelligence (AI) techniques. The approach can facilitate process model building and deployment and benefits from emerging AI and machine learning (ML) technology. The systems and methods can define PSE problems with mathematical equations, first principles and domain knowledges, and physical and economical constraints. The systems and methods generate a dataset of recorded measurements for variables of the process, and reduce the dataset by cleansing bad quality data segments and measurements for uninformative process variables from the dataset. The dataset is then enriched by, for example, applying nonlinear transforms, engineering calculations, and statistical measurements.

  • Publication number: 20200329543
    Abstract: An electronic device is for identifying a LED driver which is a switched mode power supply. For example the LED driver is part of an LED luminaire. An interface (24) is adapted to be coupled to a high frequency power commutation component of the switched mode power supply, for sensing the high frequency power commutation of the switched mode power supply in driving the LED. A mapping is made between identifications of LED drivers which are switched mode power supply and characteristics of the high frequency power commutations in driving the LED of a respective switched mode power supply. Thus, a LED driver which uses a switched mode power supply can be identified corresponding to extracted characteristics of the high frequency power commutations in driving the LED. This identification can be used for energy monitoring and fault diagnosis purposes, for use in a universal low cost LED driver.
