  • Publication number: 20190202122
    Abstract: An object build area is exposed to a radiation beam, such as a laser light source, which has been processed and controlled through a grating light valve or valves, or planar light valve, to thereby melt, sinter, fuse or cure predetermined portions of the build area corresponding to the equivalent of individually controlled pixels, with rapid movement and positioning of the resulting LV application output array on the build area. The LV arrangement is adapted to also generally heat an entire powder bed, or targeted areas of the bed, to just below melting temperature.

  • Patent number: 10128544
    Abstract: Systems and methods for controlling the temperature of an energy storage system are provided. More specifically, a time period of increased battery temperature attributable to, for instance, charging or discharging of the battery can be identified. A control system can be used to reduce the ambient temperature of a space associated with the battery energy storage devices in the time period prior to or immediately before the period of increased battery temperature. The ambient temperature can be maintained at a nominal ambient temperature at other times.

  • Patent number: 9991716
    Abstract: Systems and methods for controlling an energy storage system to provide for delivery of multiple grid services are provided. Grid service requests can be categorized into a plurality of priority tiers. Power demands associated with the grid service requests can be allocated to enforce the prioritization scheme of the priority tiers. For instance, power demands associated with grid service requests in higher priority tiers can be given preference over power demands associated with grid service requests in lower priority tiers. Multiple grid service requests can be categorized within the same priority tier. In addition, the energy storage system can be controlled not only give priority to grid services requests categorized in the higher priority tiers, but also to manage the state of charge of the system to ensure that there is sufficient reserve capacity to meet power demands of the grid service requests categorized in the higher priority tiers.

  • Publication number: 20170141576
    Abstract: Systems and methods for controlling an energy storage system are provided. In one embodiment, a method for controlling an energy storage system includes receiving a power demand associated with a grid service operation for an energy storage system and accessing data indicative of a time shift for responding to the power demand.
