  • Patent number: 10790761
    Abstract: A DC power transmission system interconnects a plurality of AC systems via a DC line. A plurality of power conversion devices are connected between the plurality of AC systems and the DC line. One of the plurality of power conversion devices controls the voltage on the DC line, while the remaining power conversion device controls a current input and output to and from the DC line. In a restart which resumes power conversion from a stopped state for controlling a DC current on the DC line, the power conversion device performing current control monitors the voltage on the DC line and starts a restart operation without transmitting or receiving information to or from the other power conversion device.

  • Publication number: 20190254108
    Abstract: A network entity (5) sends, to a mobility management entity (6) or a subscriber server (9), a request message in order to configure the mobility management entity (6) to report a second identifier to be used by a radio access network node (2) for identifying a radio terminal (1). Further, the network entity (5) receives the second identifier from the mobility management entity (6) directly or through the subscriber server (9) and communicates with the radio access network node (2) by using the second identifier. It is thus, for example, possible to allow an MEC server (or an MEC application hosted on the MEC server) and the radio access network (RAN) node to directly exchange therebetween control messages regarding a specific radio terminal.
