  • Publication number: 20200204902
    Abstract: In one example, a headset obtains, from a first microphone on the headset, a first audio signal including a user audio signal and an anisotropic background audio signal. The headset obtains, from a second microphone on the headset, a second audio signal including the user audio signal and the anisotropic background audio signal. The headset extracts, from the first audio signal and the second audio signal, using a first adaptive filter, a reference audio signal including the anisotropic background audio signal. Based on the reference signal, the headset cancels, using a second adaptive filter, the anisotropic background audio signal from a third audio signal derived from the first and second audio signals to produce an output audio signal. The headset provides the output audio signal to a receiver device.

  • Publication number: 20200191998
    Abstract: Determining a white plume control line of smoke after wet desulphurization includes: drawing a saturated air enthalpy humidity curve or equivalent; obtaining annual temperature and humidity change data of located cities or regions along with the time at the frequency of at least one datum every day; drawing the data obtained in the saturated air enthalpy humidity curve; and drawing a tangent line on the saturation curve by using each meteorological point in a chart, the right lower side of the tangent line is a de-pluming control region, the de-pluming effect superior to that at the feature meteorological point can be realized when the smoke enters the region after regulation, a region defined by the de-pluming control line and the saturation curve at a low-temperature side forms a de-pluming day number control region, and the point number falling within the region is the white plume generating day number.

  • Patent number: 10533599
    Abstract: An non-loosening and vibration-proof expanding screw includes a screw cap defining a receiving cavity, and a rod body connected to the screw cap. The rod body defines a hollow cavity, a sealing ring, and an air inlet pipe. The sealing ring includes a main body with a receiving hole and an internal ventilation pipe. The internal ventilation pipe includes interconnected first and second holes. The air inlet pipe is received in the first hole and gas under pressure can be introduced into the hollow cavity through the second hole. Thus the expanding screw can be inflated to expand and thereby lock the expanding screw and a securable object together, or be deflated to allow its release.
