||WO||WO/2014/107168 - METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR CONTROLLING THE DRIVE POWER OF A VEHICLE||10.07.2014||
||PCT/US2013/020502||CATERPILLAR INC.||BAKKEN, Arick|
When the driving force between a driven wheel of a wheel and the surface on which the vehicle is travelling exceeds the available traction, wheel slippage may occur. Wheel slippage may result in a loss of control of the vehicle. The present disclosure may facilitate the control of drive power sent to a driven wheel of a vehicle from consideration of a torque setting and a speed of the vehicle.

||PCT/US2013/020511||SCHNEIDER ELECTRIC IT CORPORATION||MEARNS, Brian, Patrick|
An uninterruptible power supply includes an input to receive an input AC voltage from a power source, an input circuit coupled to the input and configured to provide power factor correction, and a controller coupled to the input circuit. The controller is configured to detect that a reactive current is generated by one or more loads coupled to the power source and the input, and based, at least in part, on the detected reactive current, adjust an operating characteristic of the input circuit.
||WO||WO/2014/107170 - ULTRASONIC IMPACT TREATMENT FOR USEFUL LIFE IMPROVEMENT OF DOWNHOLE TOOLS||10.07.2014||
||PCT/US2013/020549||HALLIBURTON ENERGY SERVICES INC.||PANDA, Krutibas|
The useful life of a downhole tool is improved through application of an ultrasonic impact treatment. In an example method, operational parameters of an ultrasonic impact treatment device are selected based upon the one or more physical characteristics of the downhole tool. The ultrasonic impact treatment device is configured to correspond to the selected operational parameters. A residual compressive stress layer is then induced along a surface of the downhole tool using the configured ultrasonic impact treatment device, thereby improving the useful life of the downhole tool.

||PCT/US2013/000003||WARSAW ORTHOPEDIC, INC.||HORIE, Osamu|
A surgical instrument comprises a first member including a first portion defining a longitudinal axis, a second transverse portion and a first mating portion. A second member includes a first portion defining a longitudinal axis, a second transverse portion and a second mating portion. A connecting member defines a first axis being disposed transverse to the longitudinal axes and extending between a first end and a second end. The first end engages the first mating portion and the second end engages the second mating portion such that the first member is spaced apart from the second member along the first axis to deform an implant. Systems and methods are disclosed.

||PCT/US2013/020438||EMPIRE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT LLC||POTKONJAK, Miodrag|
A technique of reducing leakage energy associated with a post-silicon target circuit is generally described herein. One example method includes purposefully aging a plurality of gates in the target circuit based on a targeted metric including a timing constraint associated with the target circuit.

||PCT/US2013/020039||HEWLETT-PACKARD DEVELOPMENT COMPANY, L.P.||OFFER, Guy|
Examples disclosed herein relate to identifying an analysis reporting message in network traffic. Examples include accessing network traffic exchanged with a web server application and identifying, in the network traffic, an analysis reporting message. In examples described herein, the analysis reporting message may include information representing a client system analysis of at least one prior transaction of the client system.
||WO||WO/2014/107156 - ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR WITH ANTI-ARCING FEATURE||10.07.2014||
||PCT/US2013/020208||ANDERSON POWER PRODUCTS, INC.||YORK, Charles L.|
A novel connector pair suppresses arcing during connection and disconnection. In one general aspect of the invention, first and second insulating barriers are configured to extend beyond corresponding first and second contacts, the barriers being arranged to cover a leading end of at least one of the contacts, and to engage with each other when the contacts are separated by a small gap, thereby closing off substantially all through-air arcing paths between them. In another general aspect of the invention, at least one electrical contact in a connector pair is a bimetal contact having a transitional segment made from high resistivity metal. The transitional segment is configured to make first and last contact during the initial phases of mating and un-mating, thereby increasing electrical resistance and significantly lowering the electrical current and the energy available for electrical arcing.
||WO||WO/2014/107146 - SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR COLLECTING A REPRESENTATIVE FORMATION FLUID DURING DOWNHOLE TESTING OPERATIONS||10.07.2014||
||PCT/US2013/020034||HALLIBURTON ENERGY SERVICES, INC.||IRANI, Cyrus, A.|
A method for collecting a formation fluid for testing includes introducing a formation sample tool having a first port and a second port into a wellbore. A first fluid is injected through the first port into the formation to clear a sample passage and allow access to uncontaminated formation fluid. A second fluid is injected through the second port into the formation to provide a barrier adjacent to or around the sample passage. A sample of the uncontaminated formation fluid is removed from the formation through the first port.
||WO||WO/2014/107151 - DOWNHOLE SUPERCAPACITOR DEVICE||10.07.2014||
||PCT/US2013/020100||HALLIBURTON ENERGY SERVICES, INC.||MCMILLON, Christopher Michael|
Certain aspects and features of the present invention are directed to a supercapacitor device that can be disposed in a wellbore through a fluid-producing formation. The supercapacitor device can include a body that can be disposed in the wellbore, a supercapacitor disposed in the body, at least two terminals disposed at least partially outside the body, and an actuation mechanism. The supercapacitor stores energy. The terminals can be electrically connected with the supercapacitor. An electrical connection between the supercapacitor and the terminals can cause the energy to be discharged from the supercapacitor in response to a conductive material providing an electrical path between the at least two terminals. The actuation mechanism can selectively prevent a deployment of the supercapacitor device in the wellbore from causing a discharge of the energy from the supercapacitor.
