  • Patent number: 9784811
    Abstract: A two-channel magnetic resonance tomography system is provided with a regulation circuit for an amplification system in order to be able to take into account different load situations of the MRI system in a flexible and efficient manner. It is thus possible to improve the MRI measurements greatly if the MRI system is set to the respective load situation beforehand by an idle state measurement. The adaptation may optionally also be carried out during the MRI measurement. Therefore, a multiplicity of completely different load situations may be taken into account in an optimized manner by the regulation circuit.

  • Patent number: 9764650
    Abstract: A DC voltage source, for example an AC/DC converter, has an output producing a controllable DC voltage for a DC charging station to charge the battery of an electric vehicle. A voltage balancing unit is connected between the output of the converter and the output terminal of the DC charging station. The voltage balancing unit has a controllable switch by which the connection between voltage source or converter and battery can be made or broken as desired. The switch is controlled as a function of the voltage on the input and output side of the voltage balancing unit to the effect that the switch breaks the connection before and while the battery is being connected to the DC output terminal, and makes a connection only when the voltage on the input side of the voltage balancing unit corresponds substantially to the voltage on the output side of the voltage balancing unit.

    Abstract: A method for operating a power management device for controlling an operating device connected to a power supply network, in which the maximum demanded and/or provided output of the controlled operating device is at least 3 kW, is disclosed. An information data set is received which describes coupling information or a temporal progression of coupling information from a server device associated with a network provider of a power supply network, the coupling information describing a relationship between a device load of the operating device and a target variable to be optimized. A load profile is determined which describes a predicted temporal progression of the device load by optimizing the load profile with respect to the target variable. The load profile is provided to the server device, and the power management device may control the operating device according to a default value which is predetermined based on the load profile.

  • Patent number: 9492061
    Abstract: An endoscopy system has an endo-robot that is navigable within an anatomical lumen of a patient by interacting with a magnetic field generated by an extracorporeal magnet system. The patient lies on a patient bed that is movable in one or more directions and/or orientations, and an obstacle detects objects in the movement path of the endo-robot in the anatomical lumen and produces a signal that causes the position and/or orientation of the patient bed to be altered dependent thereon.

  • Publication number: 20160132616
    Abstract: In a method for planning a power distribution network for an installation having a multiplicity of power consumers, time-dependent load profiles for the power consumers are created as a function of a change, over time, in inertial masses to be speeded up, slowed down and/or kept in motion using the power consumers, and time-dependent power profiles are created for the power consumers. A network plan is created for the power distribution network, and a time-dependent power profile is computed for the installation. Network components of the power distribution network are dimensioned as a function of the computed time-dependent power demands on the network components.

  • Patent number: 9125576
    Abstract: A magnetically guided endoscopy capsule is separated from the surface of water with the aim of immersing the capsule completely in water, using the least possible magnetic force. A brief force curve (F_mag(t)) is thereby automatically generated on the capsule by a solenoid system, by one or more force pulses. Assuming that the capsule floats on the water surface at the start of the force curve, a force curve is applied generating an odd number of force pulses having a step profile. Each odd force pulse brings about at least a partial immersion of the endoscopy capsule in the liquid, and each even force pulse bring about at least a partial emersion of the endoscopy capsule out of the liquid.

  • Publication number: 20150185750
    Abstract: A method for monitoring an energy feed-in point of an energy supply network is particularly suited for low voltage systems. A number of first and second nodes a producer, consumer, or prosumer—are connected to the feed-in point. An actual current representing the current consumption or current output is detected at the feed-in point by a measuring and monitoring device. An item of current information received from a first node, representing an intended and/or maximum possible current consumption or output of the first node, is processed by checking whether a current value thereof fulfills a predetermined criterion relative to a possible current value of the feed-in point. The possible current value is a differential between the predetermined maximum current and the actual current. Depending on whether the criterion is fulfilled, a message is transmitted confirming or denying the current consumption or output to the first node.

  • Patent number: 8944999
    Abstract: A coil system for the contactless magnetic navigation of a magnetic body in a work space, has a plurality of coils and a current controller for controlling the respective currents in the plurality of coils. In order to navigate the magnetic body to a variably predeterminable position in the work space, the current controller is designed such that the currents in the plurality of coils are such that the magnetic forces generated by the currents and acting upon the magnetic body at multiple positions at the edge of a convex environment around the predetermined position are directed into the environment. The coil system has the advantage that a movement of the magnetic body toward a spatial position is achieved without any mechanical movement of the coil system and without a positioning system for determining the position of the magnetic body. The coil system is utilized particularly in a medical device, wherein a magnetic body in the form of a probe is moved in the body of a patient.
