  • Patent number: 10733167
    Abstract: A system has data capture devices collecting data from different points in a network. The captured data is written to a data store and is directed to an output. The data from the different data capture devices can be delivered to a data analytics device. As long as the data analytics device is able to keep pace with the data that is directed to the output, that data is used by the analytics device. If the analytics device is not able to keep pace, the data written to the data store is retrieved and is used until the analytics device has caught up.

  • Publication number: 20200144639
    Abstract: Methods and devices for generating power using PEM fuel cell power systems comprising a rotary bed reactor for hydrogen generation are disclosed. Hydrogen is generated by the hydrolysis of fuels such as lithium aluminum hydride and mixtures thereof. Water required for hydrolysis may be captured from the fuel cell exhaust. Water is preferably fed to the reactor in the form of a mist generated by an atomizer. An exemplary 750 We-h, 400 We PEM fuel cell power system may be characterized by a specific energy of about 550 We-h/kg and a specific power of about 290 We/kg.

  • Publication number: 20180313701
    Abstract: A method is provided of creating a 3D temperature map of a component. The method includes the steps of: (a) providing plural shape models of the component corresponding to respective camera views of a 3D CAD model of the component; (b) providing plural images of the component captured after a thermal paint test, each image being a view of the component corresponding to a respective one of the shape models; (c) extracting data from each image by performing the sub-steps of: (c-i) adjusting the position and/or orientation of each shape model so that the camera view of the CAD model provided by that shape model matches the view of the component provided by the corresponding image, and (c-ii) identifying temperature bands within the images and encoding the temperature bands within the matched, corresponding shape models; and (d) forming a 3D temperature map of the component from the encoded temperature bands.

  • Patent number: 9340240
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a vortex-generating system for a moving object that has a trailing edge. The system includes a first blade coupled to the object and positioned proximate the trailing edge, a second blade coupled to the object, positioned proximate the trailing edge, and spaced apart from the first blade. The first and second blade cooperate to induce an outwardly directed vortical flow of air away from the trailing edge of the object.

  • Publication number: 20080101793
    Abstract: Techniques for reestablishing network address associations upon recovery of a passive optical network (PON) disablement rely on storage address association information. A network node stores address association information in non-volatile memory upon detecting a network disablement. Upon recovery of the PON from the disablement, the network node associates network addresses to clients in accordance with the address association information. The network node may further verify the associations by sending ARP queries for the network addresses to the associated clients. Alternatively, the network nodes may reestablish the address associations by tracking the length of time of the network disablement, and updating address association information in accordance with the length of the disablement.

  • Publication number: 20080053530
    Abstract: A valve comprises a valve body having a fluid inlet and fluid outlet, a valve seat located in the valve body between the fluid inlet and a fluid outlet, a valve member movable towards and away from the valve seat for controlling the flow of fluid from the fluid inlet to the fluid outlet, and a PTC heater in thermal contact with the valve seat for heating the valve seat. The heater is integrated in the valve in a manner where the valve seat is used as an electrical conductor to facilitate operation and assembly of the valve, and a unique valve construction is provided for enabling self-draining to avoid accumulation of water or other liquid in the valve that might negatively impact performance of the valve.

  • Publication number: 20070163947
    Abstract: A filter assembly includes housing enclosing a replaceable filter element. A support core is provided in the housing, and includes an extension and locking assembly. The element includes a ring of filtration media with a pair of end caps. The first end cap includes a central opening to receive the support core. The extension and locking assembly prevents the cover of the housing from being attached to the housing body without a proper filter element installed. The extension and locking assembly includes a bypass member and a locking member, which are in locking engagement when an element is absent in the housing. The second end cap includes internal protrusions which engage the locking member when the filter element is installed to disengage the bypass member from the support core, and allow the element to be inserted and the cover to be installed.

  • Publication number: 20070099049
    Abstract: A fuel cell system (10) is adapted for positioning within a well (W) dug into the ground. The subterranean fuel cell system (10) comprises a capsule (12) for insertion into the well (W) and for containing a fuel cell stack (14), fuel storage tank (16), and a BOP assembly (18). Cathode air enters the system (10) through an inlet pipe (24) and exits via an exhaust pipe (28). The remaining fluid circuitry (e.g., anode fluid circuit, cooling fluid circuit) can be located within the capsule (12) and/or below the ground level (G) whereby external plumbing, and the need for hoses, tubes, and connections, is minimized. The ground can function as a heat sink for absorbing system heat and as an insulator for preventing freezing of reactant and/or cooling water.
