  • Patent number: 11570935
    Abstract: The present application pertains to testing methods and apparatus useful in single phase or two-phase liquid immersion cooling systems. Single phase systems use a fluid similar to mineral oil in which to immerse the servers. As the fluid is heated by the operating servers the fluid is circulated to one or more heat exchangers for cooling so the fluid never boils. In contrast, two-phase systems cool heat generating computer components which cause a dielectric fluid in its liquid phase to vaporize. The dielectric vapor is then condensed back into a liquid phase and used to cool the computer components. Using the testing methods and apparatuses herein one may design and test more efficient components and systems. More specifically, the one or more heating elements are both passive and intelligent. They may be used to mimic the power load of a server which is used in the load testing of immersion cooling so actual servers are not required to test various aspects of the liquid immersion cooling units.

  • Publication number: 20230023286
    Abstract: A watercraft comprises a vehicle payload bay; a sail connected to the payload bay for propelling the watercraft in a foiling mode; and three or more hydrofoils connected to the payload bay. The hydrofoils are configured to provide control of the roll, pitch, and yaw of the watercraft and to elevate the vehicle payload by above a water surface when the watercraft is in the foiling mode. The hydrofoils can also provide control of roll, pitch, yaw, and elevation of the watercraft during the transition from a prone mode to a foiling mode. A mechanical propulsive system can be used for propelling the watercraft at least during transition from the prone mode to the foiling mode. The watercraft may not include a hull such that during the transition from the prone mode to the foiling mode, pitch and roll control are not substantially provided through the actions of gravity and buoyancy.

  • Patent number: 11562594
    Abstract: Systems for profile management and control are provided. A system may receive an instrument or image of an instrument. In some examples, data may be extracted from the instrument or image of the instrument and a document profile may be retrieved based on the extracted data. Images within the document profile may be evaluated to identify a type of document for each document. In some examples, a total number of documents of each type may be determined or identified. The total number of documents may be compared to a threshold. If the total number of documents is below the threshold, the documents or images in the profile may be maintained. If the total number of documents is at or above the threshold, in some examples, each document may be further evaluated to determine or identify documents or document images for deletion. In some arrangements, the profile may be refreshed and documents or images identified for deletion may be deleted.

  • Publication number: 20230019231
    Abstract: A process for delineating a population of electrode structures in a web includes laser ablating the web to form ablations in the web, each ablation being formed by removing a portion of an electrochemically active layer to thereby expose a portion of an electrically conductive layer. The process includes forming alignment features in the web that are formed at predetermined locations on the web. The process also includes laser machining the web to form weakened tear patterns in the web that delineate members of the electrode structure population, each of the delineated members being individually bounded, at least in part, by a member of the weakened tear patterns that is adapted to facilitate separation of delineated members, individually, from the web by an application of a force, the alignment features being used to aid in the formation of the weakened tear patterns.
