  • Patent number: 10820207
    Abstract: A backward compatible frame reuse mechanism that allows new information to be defined a reused frame without causing any incorrect operation in a legacy receive device. To generate a reused frame, a portion of the frame in the first format is masked with a predetermined masking sequence (PMS) and thereby redefined as new fields in a second format. When a device that supports the reuse scheme receives a frame that possible is a reused frame, the device checks the potentially reused portion according to the first format after de-masking and also checks according to the second format without de-masking. Based on the check results, the device selects a format to resolve the frame. A legacy device receiving the reused frame only checks the reused portion without de-masking, which results in a certain check error and makes the device discard the frame without any harmful operation.

    Abstract: First and second types of weighted values are assigned to graph edges of a directed acyclic graph representing versions of a software product. The first type of weighted values indicate a degree of stability associated with upgrading the product. The second type of weighted values indicate an estimated time for the upgrading. A first upgrade path through the graph is generated using the first type of weighted values and corresponds to a first upgrade plan that minimizes risks associated with the upgrade. A second upgrade path through the graph is generated using the second type of weighted values and corresponds to a second upgrade plan that minimizes the estimated upgrade time. An upgrade package is created for one of the first or second upgrade plans.

  • Publication number: 20200334562
    Abstract: A reserve optimization method and apparatus based on a support outage event constrained unit commitment. The method includes the following steps: step 1: running a basic unit commitment reserve optimization model to obtain a basic unit commitment dispatch result; step 2: establishing a committed capacity outage probability table (CCOPT) based on the dispatch result, calculating the loss of load probability (LOLP), and identifying the marginal events therefrom; and step 3: adding linear constraints corresponding to the marginal events to the reserve optimization model to obtain a new dispatch result, and returning to step 2 till the result meets the LOLP requirements. Multiple compromises in the problem are considered, and the LOLP constraint is simplified such that the model can be accurately and efficiently solved.

  • Patent number: 10812160
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure relate to a method and device for beam forming. In example embodiments, a plurality of signals are obtained from a plurality of receiving antennas. The plurality of signals are grouped into a first and second set of signals. An automatic gain control (AGC) is disabled for each signal in the first set of signals, and the AGC has been enabled for each signal in the second set of signals. Then, for beam forming associated with the plurality of receiving antennas, beam weights are determined by applying a first set of signal weights to the first set of signals and applying a second set of signal weights to the second set of signals. The first set of signal weights are greater than the second set of signal weights. In this way, negative effects due to the AGC processing may be mitigated in the beam forming.
