  • Publication number: 20210346636
    Abstract: Disclosed are methods for measuring and controlling the gas temperature in medical procedures. In embodiments of the disclosed methods a gas is supplied to a patient using a gas supply device and a supply line. A heating system heats the gas using a heating wire prior to the gas being provided to the patient. A controller electrically controls the heating power of the heating wire based on an estimated value of a temperature at an exit of the heating system obtained from a mathematical estimation system, wherein a resistance of the heating wire is an input variable of the mathematical estimation system.

  • Publication number: 20210165476
    Abstract: In accordance with an embodiment, a method and system are provided to create and analyze grouped events. The method and system involve obtaining, at a network node, event data of measured real events detected at one or more locations of a monitored system according to a first criterion. The event data for each real event defines one or more parameters/dimensions of the real event. The method and system further involve aggregating the detected real events into groups according to at least one or more parameters/dimensions of the detected real events, and analyzing one or more of the aggregated groups of detected events to identify conditions on the monitored system or take action when a condition is identified from the one or more aggregated groups of tracked events. The tracked real events may include an alarm event as well as a system event.

  • Publication number: 20210165024
    Abstract: In a method and system, voltage and/or current signals on an electrical/power system is monitored. A power event is identified from the monitored voltage and/or current signals. In response to event identification, waveforms of the monitored voltage and/or current signals are captured. Energy-related signals are calculated and extracted from pre-event measurements, event measurements and post-event measurements using the captured waveforms. Additional information associated with the event is identified and calculated by comparing (a) the calculated and used energy-related signals from pre-event measurements, with (b) the calculated and used energy-related signals from post-event measurements.
