  • Publication number: 20210406512
    Abstract: A method for assessing risk to a marine hydrocarbon recovery operation involves collecting a set of training images and labeling sea surface anomalies on the set of training images. The set of training images and associated labels are used to train a model via backpropagation. A set of non-training images is collected and the trained model is applied to identify a potentially disruptive sea surface anomaly on the set of non-training images. Any risk to the marine hydrocarbon recovery operation by the potentially disruptive sea surface anomaly is then assessed.

  • Publication number: 20210390343
    Abstract: A backpropagation-enabled method for identifying a sea surface anomaly involves collecting an initial set of images and labeling the anomaly on the initial set of images. The initial set of images are selected from satellite-acquired images and/or simulated satellite images. The labels are used to train a model via backpropagation. A subsequent set of images, including satellite-acquired, airborne-acquired images, and combinations thereof, is collected and the trained model is applied to identify a sea surface anomaly on the subsequent set of images.

  • Publication number: 20210231716
    Abstract: Respective phasor values are recursively computed from respective ones of a series of signal samples for a node of a power system such that each phasor value is computed from a previously computed phasor value. Frequency values are recursively computed from the phasor values for respective ones of the signal samples. Recursive computing of frequency values may include computing respective phase angle values from respective ones of the phasor values, recursively computing coefficient values for a polynomial that fits the phase angle values, and recursively computing the frequency values from the coefficient values. The samples may be generated at a sampling rate and the phasor values and the frequency values may be produced at a rate that is the same as the sampling rate. Embodiments may provide methods, apparatus and computer readable media that implement such operations.
