  • Patent number: 11961952
    Abstract: A secondary battery is provided for cycling between a charged and a discharged state, the secondary battery including a battery enclosure, an electrode assembly, carrier ions, a non-aqueous liquid electrolyte within the battery enclosure, and a set of electrode constraints. The set of electrode constraints includes a primary constraint system having first and second primary growth constraints and at least one primary connecting member, the first and second primary growth constraints separated from each other in the longitudinal direction, wherein the primary constraint array restrains growth of the electrode assembly in the longitudinal direction such that any increase in the Feret diameter of the electrode assembly in the longitudinal direction over 20 consecutive cycles of the secondary battery is less than 20%.

  • Publication number: 20120072331
    Abstract: An alert system that notifies an Exchange's staff of a trade appearing to be outside an expected market range of prices includes determination logic which derives, based on data received from an input device, a theoretical no-bust range of prices, i.e. prices above and below a synthesized market price, within which an erroneous trade cannot be cancelled. Evaluation logic monitors trades and compares them to the theoretical no-bust range of prices. Alert logic notifies the Exchange's staff when the evaluation logic identifies a potentially erroneous trade that lies outside the theoretical no-bust range of prices. A method of notifying the Exchange of a trade that potentially lies outside of an expected range of prices includes monitoring an input range of prices, deriving the theoretical no-bust range of prices, comparing transactions prices to the theoretical no-bust range of prices and notifying the Exchange when a potentially erroneous trade can be cancelled.

  • Patent number: 8078523
    Abstract: An alert system that notifies an Exchange's staff of a trade that appears to be outside of an expected market range of prices includes an input device, determination logic, evaluation logic, and alert logic. The determination logic derives a theoretical no-bust range of prices based on data received from the input device. The theoretical no-bust range of prices are prices above and below a synthesized market price, within which an erroneous trade cannot be cancelled. The evaluation logic monitors trades and compares those trades to the theoretical no-bust range of prices. The alert logic notifies the Exchange's staff when the evaluation logic identifies a potentially erroneous trade that lies outside the theoretical no-bust range of prices. A method of notifying the Exchange of a trade that potentially lies outside of an expected range of prices includes monitoring an input range of prices and deriving the theoretical no-bust range of prices.

  • Patent number: 4624097
    Abstract: The invention provides a rope having a central strand and a plurality of outer strands extending helically about the central strand. Each of the outer strands consists of a plurality of elements in a helical wrap, at least some of these elements having a core of synthetic plastic filaments extending generally in parallel with one another and a sheath about the core containing the filaments. The invention also provides a method of making the rope.
