  • Patent number: 10279424
    Abstract: A filter device for gas filtration has a filter housing and a plate-type filter element disposed in the filter housing. The filter element is provided with a raw side and a clean side and is flowed through from the raw side to the clean side by a gas to be purified in a direction that is orthogonal to a filter plane of the plate-type filter element. A cover element is connected to the filter housing by a tensioning bolt penetrating the filter element. The filter element has a cutout forming a clean-side gas collecting chamber. A sealing element is arranged on the clean side of the filter element and frames the gas collecting chamber at least partially. A sealing eye is connected to the sealing element and arranged in the gas collecting chamber, wherein the tensioning bolt is guided through the sealing eye.

  • Patent number: 8738192
    Abstract: A method for operating a wind turbine having at least one blade includes determining an ambient air operating envelope and controlling a power output of the wind turbine at least partially based on the determined ambient air operating envelope. Determining an ambient air operating envelope includes measuring at least one of an ambient air temperature, an ambient air pressure, an ambient air humidity, and wind turbine power output. The method also includes comparing at least one of a measured ambient air temperature, a measured ambient air humidity and a measured ambient air pressure to predetermined ambient air temperature, pressure and humidity values. The method further includes referencing the predetermined ambient air temperature, pressure and humidity values to at least one operational parameter of the wind turbine. The method also includes determining if an existing wind turbine power output is within a range associated with the determined ambient air operating envelope.
