  • Patent number: 10207412
    Abstract: A platform including at least one industrial robot, wherein the platform is arranged to be carried by a vehicle to a working site where the at least one industrial robot is to perform a task in relation to the working site. The platform includes a platform body, a platform control unit and a connecting arrangement with a connecting device arranged to be connected to a vehicle arm of the vehicle such that the platform can be carried by the vehicle arm of the vehicle. The connecting arrangement further includes an actuator arranged to cause the platform to rotate around an axis X-X defined by the connecting device according to instructions from the platform control unit. A vehicle including the platform is also described.

  • Patent number: 9995306
    Abstract: A method of controlling fluid flow in a fluid network system by fluid machines includes obtaining a respective current flow rate associated with each fluid machine, obtaining a current fluid machine speed of each fluid machine, obtaining desired flow rates in the system, and determining a new fluid machine speed for each fluid machine based on the current fluid machine speed and a change in the fluid machine speed required to obtain the desired flow rates. The change in fluid machine speed is determined by minimizing a total fluid machine power which is a function dependent of the change in the fluid machine speed, the minimization being performed with constraints for flow rate, fluid machine pressure and fluid machine speed. The method include controlling the speed of the fluid machines according to the new fluid machine speeds such that the minimum total fluid machine power in the system is attained.

  • Patent number: 9382798
    Abstract: A method of controlling fluid flow in a fluid network system by means of a plurality of fluid machines. The disclosure provides a simple empirical method of identifying network characteristics of the fluid network system used for providing the required fluid flow rate in the fluid network system utilizing minimal fluid machine power. The method includes the steps of determining a relation between a change in fluid machine speed and a corresponding change in fluid flow rate for each of the plurality of fluid machines empirically; determining a minimum total fluid machine power which provides a minimum required flow rate in the fluid network system based on a constraint involving the relation between the fluid flow rate and the corresponding fluid machine speed, and controlling a speed of the plurality of fluid machines such that the minimum total fluid machine power in the fluid network system is attained.
