  • Patent number: 10330029
    Abstract: A method for a more efficient use of a vehicle combustion engine during driving, the vehicle including an automatic step geared transmission. The method includes the steps of sensing current engine rotational speed and engine rotational speed increase, estimating necessary minimum upshift engine rotational speed for a coming gear upshift, registering that the engine rotational speed stops increasing without reaching the minimum upshift engine rotational speed, and where the engine rotational speed stops increasing relatively close to a maximum engine rotational speed where engine efficiency is relatively low and, automatically controlling engine output torque in order to limit the engine rotational speed to a first predetermined engine speed where engine efficiency is relatively high.

  • Publication number: 20190134652
    Abstract: Applicant discloses a two part polymer mix for use in the aircraft industry that is applied with pneumatic mix and spray gun. The two part cartridge is used in the mix and spray gun so the mix is applied immediately upon mixing, but the two components are kept separated unless the gun is applying the mix. The mix cures to form a clear sealant that allows for inspection of cracks and corrosion beneath the sealant. It cures quickly so that the coated part may be further processed, for example in the assembly line during aircraft build. Applicant further discloses multiple spray gun systems for applying such a two-part polymer mix to aircraft parts.

  • Patent number: 8504229
    Abstract: In a method and device for selecting a starting gear in a hybrid electric vehicle, a first driving sequence is registered during which a parameter indicates that an electric motor energy source has been drained past an energy level limit and/or no gear ratio shift from said starting gear ratio has occurred. Upon detection of the driving sequence, draining of said energy source and/or no gear ratio shift, selection of a starting gear ratio is altered to a gear ratio being higher, compared to a normal starting gear ratio, for the next vehicle take off of a driving sequence following the first driving sequence. This increases possibility that the vehicle during driving with the altered starting gear will reach a vehicle speed that corresponds to a combustion engine speed above idle speed of the combustion engine.

  • Patent number: 8092342
    Abstract: Method for adapting an automated transmission of a heavy vehicle in consideration of a speed sensitive PTO. The method selects appropriate gears based on the constraint that the engaged PTO should remain below a set speed limit. The information about the speed limit of the PTO is used by the transmission control unit to ensure that the engine does not drive the PTO at a speed higher than the given speed limit. The engine speed may also be limited to reduce the engine speed to prevent it from exceeding the allowable PTO speed.

  • Publication number: 20100036570
    Abstract: Method and arrangement for assuring synchronization between an engine controller and a transmission controller on a heavy vehicle with an automatic mechanical transmission with respect to maximum allowable engine torque output levels. The engine controller is programmed to automatically communicate existing programmed maximum allowable engine torque capacities to the transmission controller under all, or predetermined circumstances in order to assure synchronous performance between the engine and transmission when executing program routines that depend upon program agreement existing between the two controllers in order to properly affect desired performance in the vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20080234104
    Abstract: A method and device for modifying throttle control characteristics of a throttle control in a vehicle, the vehicle including an engine coupled to engine driven vehicle wheels via a stepped gear mechanical transmission, and where requested engine torque at a given engine speed of the engine is controlled as a function of positions of the throttle control. When sensing a gear shift to a vehicle high speed gear, a control unit modifies the characteristics so the engine torque and engine speed will be controlled via said throttle control along a first set of relatively flat curves, when the curves are plotted in a diagram with engine torque on the y-axis and engine speed on the x-axis.

  • Patent number: 6972505
    Abstract: A rotating electrical machine and method for making the machine, where the machine includes a high-voltage stator winding and elongated support devices for supporting the winding. The machine and method employ an arrangement of cable that is made of inner conductive strands, covered with a first semiconducting layer, which is covered with an insulating layer, which is covered with a second semiconducting layer. The cable is wound in slots in the stator such that separate cable lead-throughs are positioned in specific arrangements with respect to each other and in slots of the stator. The arrangement of the cable in the stator protects the integrity of the respective components in the cable and particularly the second semiconducting layer.

  • Patent number: 6936947
    Abstract: In a plant containing a turbo-generator the magnetic circuit of the turbo-generator is included in an electric generator which directly supplies a high supply voltage of 20-800 kV, preferably higher than 36 kV. The insulation of the generator is built up of a cable (6) comprising one or more current-carrying conductors (31) with a number of strands (36) surrounded by outer and inner semiconducting layers (34, 32) and intermediate insulating layers (33). The outer semiconducting layer (34) is at earth potential. The phases of the winding are Y-connected. The Y-point may be insulated and protected from over-voltage by means of surge arresters, or else the Y-point may be earthed via a suppression filter.

  • Publication number: 20030094304
    Abstract: An insulated conductor for high-voltage windings and electric machine, and rotating electric machine that use the insulated conductor. The insulated conductor is suitable for use in a high-voltage winding application for devices such as an electric machine and a rotating electric machine. A feature of the insulated conductor is that the conductor includes at least one strand, and an inner conductive layer that surrounds the at least one strand. An insulating layer surrounds the inner conductive layer, and an outer conductive layer surrounds the insulating layer. When arranged in this manner, and when the outer conductive layer is suitably configured to provide an equipotential surface, the insulated conductor provides relatively high resistance to breakdown when operating at high voltages.
