  • Patent number: 10298057
    Abstract: A double-sided LCLC-compensated network is proposed for a capacitive power transfer (CPT) system. In one design, four metal plates are used to form two power transmitting and receiving capacitors and the LCLC network is used to compensate the capacitors. In the second design, two extra metal plates are used to couple with the previous four plates at the transmitting and receiving side, respectively, which forms the capacitor-integrated structure. The circuit parameter values are tuned to achieve zero voltage switching (ZVS) of the input side switches. There is also a CLLC topology proposed, which is a similar variation of LCLC circuit. A 3.3 kW input power capacitive power transfer prototype is designed and built. The experiment results show that the proposed CPT system can transfer 3.1 kW output power through an air gap distance of 70 mm with a dc-to-dc efficiency of 92.1%.

  • Patent number: 10290299
    Abstract: Systems and methods are utilized for recognizing speech that is partially in a foreign language. The systems and methods receive speech input from a user and detect if a rule or sentence entry grammar structure utilizing a foreign word has been uttered. To recognize the foreign word, a foreign word grammar is utilized. The foreign word grammar includes rules for recognizing the uttered foreign word. Two rules may be included in the foreign word grammar for each legitimate or slang term included in the foreign word grammar. A first rule corresponds to the spoken form of the foreign word, and the second rule corresponds to the spelling form of the foreign word. The foreign word grammar may also utilize a prefix tree. Upon recognizing the foreign word, the recognized foreign word may be sent to an application to retrieve the pronunciation, translation, or definition of the foreign word.
