  • Publication number: 20220379281
    Abstract: A process and system for monitoring and controlling the operation of a dehydrogenation reactor is provided. Samples of hydrocarbon streams are taken at sampling locations to be analyzed at a single gas chromatograph or other analytical equipment. Actions can be taken to modify the operation of the dehydrogenation reactor as necessary to maintain its operation within predetermined parameters. In particular, actions may be taken when a hydrocarbon stream exhibits an amount of cracking that is outside parameters. It is usually intended that actions will be taken on a gradual basis once or twice per day to reduce the cost of the process while still providing the necessary changes to operations.

  • Patent number: 11511679
    Abstract: An accessory mounting track includes a forward edge, a rearward edge, an upper surface, a lower surface, a first end region with a first end, a second end region with a second end, and an intermediate region positioned between the first and second end regions. A cross-section of the intermediate region includes an angular portion positioned on either side of a planar portion. The planar portion and the angular portions are delineated by an inflection point at a junction between the planar portion and each of the angled portions. A distance between the upper surface and the lower surface at the angular portions decreases as a distance from a centerline of the intermediate region increases. A distance between the forward edge and the rearward edge at the first and second end regions increases as a distance from the intermediate region increases.

  • Patent number: 11491438
    Abstract: Provided is a system for adsorbing a gaseous component comprising nitrogen from a pressurized flow of air containing the gaseous component. The system comprises a first adsorption bed, and a second adsorption bed. Each of the adsorption beds are suitable for selectively adsorbing the gaseous component from the flow of air to produce a product gas having a higher oxygen concentration than that of the air. The system includes an adjustable feed gas supply which alternately supplies the first adsorption bed and the second adsorption bed with the air. The first adsorption bed is supplied with air during a first half cycle of operation of the system, and the second adsorption bed is then supplied with air during a second half cycle of operation of the system. The feed gas supply enables adjustment of at least one parameter relating to the amount or respective amounts of air being supplied to the first adsorption bed in the first half cycle and/or to the second adsorption bed in the second half cycle.

  • Publication number: 20220350631
    Abstract: Examples of enterprise management using managed virtual machines are described. A host user context configuration can be received from a host management agent. The host user context configuration can include one or more policies. A managed virtual machine user context configuration can be received from a guest management agent within a managed virtual machine. A portion of the host user context configuration can be processed using a translation matrix to identify a configuration service provider (CSP)-based profile that is mapped to a policy from the host user context configuration. A command to enforce the CSP-based profile on the managed virtual machine can be transmitted.

  • Publication number: 20220350629
    Abstract: Examples of enterprise management using managed virtual machines are described. A guest management agent executed within a managed virtual machine receives a command to update a user context configuration of the managed virtual machine from a management service. The command to update the user context configuration of the managed virtual machine is transferred through an inter-process communication (IPC) channel from the guest management agent within the managed virtual machine to a host management agent executed on the host device outside the managed virtual machine. The command to update the user context configuration of the managed virtual machine is implemented using a host desktop hypervisor.

  • Patent number: 11467327
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides numerous applications for the use of liquid crystal polarization gratings (LCPGs) to controllably steer light. When combined with an image sensor, light generated or reflected from different fields of view (FOV) can be steered, allowing an increase in the FOV or the resolution of the image. Further, the LCPG can stabilize the resulting image, counteracting any movement of the image sensor. The combination of LCPGs and liquid crystal waveguides (LCWGs) allows fine deflection control of light (from the LCWG) over a wild field of view (from the LCPG). Further applications of LCPGs include object tracking and the production of depth images using multiple imaging units and independently steered LCPGs. The LCPG may be used in controlling both the projection and reception of light.

  • Publication number: 20220306199
    Abstract: Systems and methods for smoothing automated lane change (ALC) operations. A mission planner, upon receipt of an ALC request, sends a ALC heads up signal to a lateral control. The mission planner then begins confidence building operations, for a preprogrammed duration of time, and awaits an ALC ready signal from the lateral control. The lateral control, upon receipt of the ALC heads up, calculates an index of readiness, RALC, as a function of the requested ALC, a current trajectory, and a lane centering control path. When RALC is less than or equal to a readiness threshold, Rt, the lateral control sends the ALC ready signal. When RALC is greater than Rt, the lateral control generates a steering correction and applies the steering correction to reduce the RALC and thereby stabilize the vehicle and send the ALC ready signal. Upon receiving the ALC ready signal, the ALC operation is executed.
