  • Publication number: 20240066437
    Abstract: Method and apparatus are provided to select target metal particles from aggregate ore. A feed stream of aggregate is directed along a path and a higher density portion is segregated therefrom. Detectors are arranged in-line and along the flow of the higher density portion. High resolution detection of a target particles within the feed stream triggers ejection of a select portion of the feed stream and target particle as a concentrate and the balance continues to a further phase of detection/ejection. The concentrate is processed in further stages or collected as product. Multiple parallel detector/ejectors across the path can isolate target particles and minimize the ejected gangue portion associated therewith. Dry or hydrodynamic transport of the feed stream is available determined by aggregate characteristics. A compact footprint of the apparatus is achieved with arcuate paths and multi-level conveyance whilst low energy requirements enables use in artisan installations.

  • Patent number: 10496154
    Abstract: An active noise cancelling power supply to perform active noise cancelling of input power with noise to output power. The active noise cancelling power supply having a power transformation device receiving input power and converting the power to a voltage signal with a ripple. The active noise cancelling power supply has a ripple measuring device, which measures the ripple as the voltage signal with a ripple passes through the ripple measuring device producing a ripple signal. A controller with a data storage in communication with a processor, wherein computer instructions in the data storage are configured to instruct the processor to produce a first noise cancellation signal in volts or millivolts out of phase with the ripple signal and inject the first noise cancellation signal on the voltage signal with a ripple at a node forming a clean signal as output power.

  • Patent number: 10027227
    Abstract: A power supply with digitally compensated circuit having a plurality of integrated circuits. The plurality of integrated circuits has a digitally variable slope controller to adjust charge time of an inductor and voltage distortion and an adjustable voltage generator, which generates a modified voltage set point. The digitally compensated circuit has a comparator, which compares the modified voltage set point to a first feedback and turns off a comparator output signal when first feedback approaches or exceeds the modified voltage set point. An adjustable pulse width modulator generator produces an output voltage. A current monitor receives output voltage and provides a second feedback, which is transferred to the plurality of integrated circuits. An inductor receives output voltage and generates variable output power for a load, utilizing the digitally variable slope controller to reduce oscillation, system disturbances, and subharmonic oscillations over a dynamic voltage input range.
