||PCT/CH2014/000029||VARIAN MEDICAL SYSTEMS INTERNATIONAL AG||KUUSELA, Esa|
System and method for automatically generate therapy plan parameters by use of an integrate model with extended applicable regions. The integrated model integrates multiple predictive models from which a suitable predictive model can be selected automatically to perform prediction for a new patient case. The integrated model may operate to evaluate prediction results generated by each predictive model and the associated prediction reliabilities and selectively output a satisfactory prediction. Alternatively, the integrated model may select a suitable predictive model by a decision hierarchy in which each level corresponds to divisions of a patient data feature set and divisions on a subordinate level are nested with divisions on a superordinate level.

||PCT/CH2014/000025||BRUGG ROHR AG HOLDING||OESCHGER, Alfred|
The invention relates to a corrugated, thermally insulated conduit for fluids, e.g. for district heating networks, wherein at least one medium pipe (2) made of plastic or metal is surrounded by a thermal insulation layer (14), consisting of a polyurethane foam for example. The corrugation (25, 26) of the outer jacket (15) made of plastic is formed such that both the corrugation valleys (25) and the corrugation peaks (26) are round, particularly circular. In addition, the corrugation is dimensioned such that the corrugation depth T lies in a range of 4.5 mm to 8 mm for a conduit outer diameter range of 63 mm to 202 mm. This shaping and dimensioning of the conduit results in very good flexibility and thus the ability to roll up the pipe for the transport thereof.

||PCT/CH2014/000023||AIRLIGHT ENERGY IP SA||PEDRETTI-RODI, Andrea|
The present invention relates to a method for utilizing heat by a solar power plant, wherein heat is collected in the field of collectors (2) and is stored in a heat accumulator (5) and supplied for utilization to a downstream utilization unit (25), and wherein the pressure in the heat accumulator during the utilization of the heat is held substantially at the pressure level that corresponds to the input pressure of the downstream utilization unit. A solar power plant for performing this method has a heat accumulator, which stores heat generated by the solar field, and a pipe arrangement which connects the solar field, the heat accumulator and a unit for utilizing the heat to one another so as to be capable of operation and is designed for an operating mode of charging the heat accumulator and for an operating mode of discharging same. The heat accumulator is arranged in an overpressure zone that can be put under changing, predetermined pressure during operation.

||PCT/CH2013/000031||AMMANN SCHWEIZ AG||TROX, Uwe|
The invention relates to a method for heating a paver screed (10) equipped with a heating device. The heating device has electric heating elements (2) which are supplied with an electric current by means of a current generator (1) in order to generate the heat. The electric voltage (U) which is supplied to the heating elements (2) is changed in order to change the heating output of the heating device. The electric voltage applied to the respective heating element (2) is thus increased or decreased in order to control or regulate the heating output. In this manner, an energy-efficient operation is made possible, and the service life of the heating elements (2) as well as of the generator (1) can be substantially increased. The motor which drives the generator (1) is likewise spared, and fuel is also saved when using an internal combustion engine, for example a diesel engine.
