  • Publication number: 20210124082
    Abstract: Properties of a geological formation, such as vertical resistivity values, horizontal resistivity values, dip, and azimuth may be determined by inverting electromagnetic (EM) well log data based at least in part on an anisotropic formation model and a cost function. The cost function may include a data misfit term, a smoothness term, and an entropy term. In some embodiments, one or more of the data misfit term, the smoothness term, and the entropy term may be represented as functions of vertical conductivity and horizontal conductivity. The cost function may include one or more regularization parameters that are based at least in part on the data misfit term. Further, the cost function may include one or more relaxation factors that are based at least in part on a ratio of the Hessians of the smoothness term and the data misfit term.

  • Patent number: 10958133
    Abstract: In an electric motor, a magnetic bearing generates an electromagnetic force between multiple permanent magnets and a coil and rotatably supports an other side of a rotation shaft in an axis line direction. The rotation shaft is configured to be capable of being inclined with a rotation center line using a bearing side of the rotation shaft as a fulcrum. An electronic control device controls a current that flows to the coil such that an axis line of the rotation shaft approaches the rotation center line due to a supporting force which is the electromagnetic force between the multiple permanent magnets and the coil. Accordingly, the rotation shaft is rotatably supported to be freely rotatable by a magnetic bearing and the bearing.

  • Publication number: 20210003740
    Abstract: In a relay unit, a sensor-side communication controller acquires setting information from a synchronization line and stores the acquired setting information in a storage unit in response to reception of a backup instruction from a communication master by a master-side communication controller. The sensor-side communication controller outputs the setting information stored in the storage unit to the synchronization line via a branch line in response to reception of a restoration instruction from the communication master by the master-side communication controller. The sensor-side communication controller periodically or aperiodically compares the setting information transmitted through the synchronization line with the setting information of the storage unit so as to detect presence or absence of a difference. The master-side communication controller outputs a notification signal to the communication master in response to detection of the difference.
