  • Patent number: 10581271
    Abstract: An incentive-based demand response (DR) method and system are provided from the view of a grid operator (GO) to enable system-level dispatch of DR resources. The method spans three hierarchical levels of a GO, multiple service providers (SPs), and corresponding customers. The GO first posts an incentive to SPs, who will then invoke sub-programs with enrolled customers to negotiate quantities of demand reduction via providing SP incentives. In view of the hierarchical decision-making structure, a two-loop Stackelberg game is proposed to capture interactions between different actors. The existence of a unique Stackelberg equilibrium that provides optimal system solutions is demonstrated. Simulation results show that the proposed method is effective in helping compensate system resource deficiency at minimum cost.

  • Patent number: 10281371
    Abstract: A sequential air sampler is provided having a rotatable carrier adapted to support filter cassettes received from a supply magazine at a load station, transport them to a sampling station where gas flow is directed through that cassette, and then be transported to an unload station to be received by a storage magazine. A Geneva driver operated by a single motor provides intermittent rotation to the carrier between fixed positions. A cam rotates in concert with the Geneva driver so that a follower in reciprocating motion pushes up and then pulls down a pair of plungers for simultaneous cassette loading and unloading whenever the carrier is at one of its fixed positions. Magazines have magnetically actuated stoppers to keep the stack of cassettes in place until released. Magazines may also have a retaining lid with a position-adjustable piston to secure cassettes for transport.

  • Publication number: 20180083482
    Abstract: A Stackelberg game approach is used to describe a Demand-Response (DR) model for electricity trading between one utility company and multiple users, balancing supply and demand as well as smoothing an aggregated load in the power grid system. The interactions between the utility company and users are formulated into a 1-leader and N-follower Stackelberg game, where optimization problems are formed for each player to help select an optimal strategy. A pricing function is adopted for regulating real-time prices (RTP), and acts as a coordinator inducing users to join the game. An iterative algorithm is proposed to derive a Stackelberg equilibrium, through which optimal power generation and power demands are determined for the utility company and users, respectively.

  • Patent number: 9157871
    Abstract: A particulate mass measuring device of the beta attenuation type featuring a sheath air plenum from which a radial sheath airflow pathway extends which is in fluid communication with an ambient air chamber. The radial sheath airflow from the radial sheath airflow pathway merges with an axial ambient airflow from the ambient air chamber deflecting particulate matter from surfaces of the ambient air chamber thereby increasing the accuracy of particulate mass measurements. The radial sheath airflow is particle free or substantially particle free. In other embodiments, the radial sheath airflow is used to deflect particulate matter in other particulate mass measuring devices, such as those that measure particulate mass in liquid and gas samples.
