  • Publication number: 20100094490
    Abstract: A marine vessel power generation and propulsion system including a control system. The system includes a plurality of generator sets, each generator set including an engine configured to drive an electrical generator and wherein each generator set is configured to supply electrical power to an electrical bus. The control system includes a controller configured to switch the power generation system between a plurality of operating modes, wherein in each mode of operation the controller adjusts each generator set to dynamically optimize the performance of the power generation system. In each mode of operation the controller is configured to prioritize a different predetermined characteristic when optimizing the performance of the power generation system.

  • Publication number: 20080311842
    Abstract: An HVAC system including a first diverter valve configured to divert, in varying amounts, an airflow entering the valve out two different outlets, in a manner that does not create a substantial increase in backpressure due to the diversion or otherwise substantially restrict the general flow of air in the HVAC system. The system further includes a first sensor assembly configured to sense a first environmental condition that includes at least one of temperature and a phenomenon indicative of the makeup of room air, a control unit, and a user interface unit, wherein the control unit is in communication with the diverter valve and the first sensor assembly.
