  • Patent number: 11486356
    Abstract: A system and method are provided for controlling a wind turbine. Accordingly, a controller of the wind turbine detects a loss of traction of the slip coupling between a generator and a rotor of the drivetrain of the wind turbine. In response to detecting the loss of traction, the controller overrides a generator torque setpoint to alter a rotational speed of the generator. In response to the altered rotational speed of the generator, the traction of the slip coupling is increased. Increasing the traction of the slip coupling facilitates an application of generator torque to the drivetrain of the wind turbine.

  • Patent number: 11480153
    Abstract: A system and method are provided for controlling a wind turbine to protect the wind turbine from anomalous operations. Accordingly, in response to receiving data indicative of an anomalous operational event of the wind turbine, the controller initiates an enhanced braking mode for the wind turbine. The enhanced braking mode is characterized by operating the generator at a torque setpoint that generates maximum available torque for a given set of operating conditions. Additionally, the torque setpoint is in excess of a nominal torque limit for the generator.

  • Publication number: 20220258415
    Abstract: A system and method of additively manufacturing a part via salt micro-spheres. The method includes mixing salt micro-spheres with an additive manufacturing material to form an additive manufacturing material mixture. The additive manufacturing material mixture is deposited on a build platform layer by layer and cured so as to create a structure having pores formed by the salt micro-spheres. The salt micro-spheres may then be dissolved and flushed from the pores.

  • Patent number: 11394324
    Abstract: A method for operating a multi-level bridge power converter of an electrical power system includes connecting a plurality of phases of the power converter to a common terminal at a DC side of the power converter so as to effectively equate the plurality of phases at a common electrical potential. The method may also include monitoring, via a controller, a plurality of devices of the power converter for faults. Upon detection of a fault in one or more of the plurality of devices, the method includes activating, via the controller, one or more protection devices of a crowbar of the power converter to prevent additional faults from occurring in remaining devices of the plurality of devices by diverting energy away from the remaining devices of the plurality of devices.

  • Patent number: 11086582
    Abstract: Devices having touchscreen displays or other types of sensors may be placed adjacent to one another to form a larger display area for content. A relative position and alignment between these adjacent devices are determined using a touch gesture by a user. For example, a user may draw a line, circle, or other shape that provides input to the touch sensors of the devices. Touch data received from each device indicates the coordinates where contact was provided to the touch sensor. By matching the coordinates positioned near the borders of adjacent devices based on the time of their input, the relative position and alignment between the devices is determined. A corresponding portion of the content is provided to each device based on its relative position and alignment to form a consistent display area.

  • Patent number: 9828510
    Abstract: The present invention is a composition comprising a solution or a dispersion of polymer particles, a sorbate ester or sorbamide curing agent, and a cure modulating additive for the curing agent. The curing agent is a sorbic acid ester or a sorbamide and the cure modulating agent is a reagent capable of accelerating or attenuating the rate of cure of the curing agent. The control of cure kinetics is important for speeding up cure rates where rates are too slow or by reducing cure rates where curing too rapidly results in undesirable color formation.
