  • Patent number: 10393562
    Abstract: A method for determining a gas consumption of a gas-powered gas engine or a gas-powered dual-fuel engine. The engine is operated under actual operating conditions, and the actual gas consumption of the engine is acquired under the actual operating conditions. A target gas consumption of the engine to be anticipated under target operating conditions is calculated depending on the actual gas consumption and depending on discrepancies between the actual operating conditions and the target operating conditions.

  • Patent number: 10342703
    Abstract: The invention relates to an ocular implant for treating glaucoma. The problem addressed by the invention is to make it possible to drain aqueous humor from the anterior chamber of the eye into the subconjunctival or suprachoroidal space in order to lower the intraocular pressure in glaucoma cases. The device is to do away with the drawbacks of known valve mechanisms and should be economical to produce. In order to solve said problem, the glaucoma drainage implant is composed of an elongate, hollow main member in which a flow-limiting membrane is arranged in the inflow region.

  • Patent number: 10305067
    Abstract: The invention relates to a substrate (2) for manufacturing an organic conversion device for converting electrical energy into light energy or light energy into electrical energy, wherein the substrate comprises a) an encapsulation layer (3) on the substrate, wherein the encapsulation layer includes a first inorganic layer (7), a second inorganic layer (9) and an intermediate organic layer (8), and b) a getter reservoir (6) in contact with the organic layer of the encapsulation layer. Water molecules will therefore not only be transported along the intermediate organic layer, but will also be gathered, especially absorbed, by the getter reservoir, if the encapsulation is damaged. This can slow down a transport of water molecules along a leakage path towards an organic conversion layer of the organic conversion device and hence slow down a possible degradation of the performance of the organic conversion device, if the encapsulation layer is damaged.

  • Publication number: 20180327068
    Abstract: A method for operating a ship propulsion system. A setpoint rotational speed is determined for a propeller shaft and a setpoint pitch angle for an adjustable propeller on a control side based on an adjustable propeller characteristic diagram and an operator. An engine is determined based on a ship's engine characteristic diagram and the setpoint rotational speed for the propeller shaft. An actual engine operating point is determined as a function of a measured actual rotational speed and a measured actual torque, so that when the drive power is constant, the set-point rotational speed for the propeller shaft and the pitch angle for the adjustable propeller can be varied while reducing fuel consumption of the ship's engine and, when this is possible, the setpoint rotational speed for the propeller shaft, the setpoint pitch angle for the adjustable propeller and the setpoint operating point of the ship's engine are adapted.
