|20130133917||INSULATION SYSTEM FOR PREVENTION OF CORONA DISCHARGE - Methods and systems for preventing corona discharge are provided. In one embodiment, an insulation system for a coil conductor comprising a grounded conductive or semi-conductive layer is molded over a primary insulation layer molded on coil conductor which limits the occurrence of voltage drop to the primary insulating layer is disclosed.||05-30-2013|
|20110215645||CONTAINERIZED CONTINUOUS POWER SYSTEM AND METHOD - It is an object of this disclosure to provide an efficient continuous power system that may be deployed quickly and at low cost to a variety of destinations. The containerized nature of the presently disclosed system may allow these advantages to be attained. The disclosed system is particularly well suited for deployment in data center applications, but one of ordinary skill will recognize that it may be useful in a variety of situations.||09-08-2011|
|20100171366||TRANSIENT ENERGY SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR USE OF THE SAME - This disclosure relates to transient energy systems for supplying power to a load substantially instantaneously on demand. Transient energy systems may include a flywheel coupled the rotor of an induction motor generator. One embodiment of the disclosure refers to systems and methods for reducing loads on a bearing in a transient energy system. In another embodiment, the disclosure refers to an induction motor generator that is optimized for high power transient power generation, yet low power motor operation. Yet another embodiment of the disclosure refers to using a flywheel as a drag pump to cool components of a transient energy system. In yet another embodiment, a slip control scheme is discussed for regulating a DC bus. In yet a further embodiment of the disclosure a method is provided for reducing unnecessary turbine starts by making turbine start a function of the rotational velocity of a flywheel.||07-08-2010|
