||PCT/GB2013/050566||KABUSHIKI KAISHA TOSHIBA||WATKINS, Gavin|
Amplifier circuitry for an envelope modulator comprising: a plurality of amplifiers for driving a load, each amplifier receiving an input representing an envelope of a signal to be amplified, and one or more charge storage devices coupled to one or more of said plurality of amplifiers. The plurality of amplifiers and charge storage device(s) receive a supply voltage V+ and the charge storage device(s) are charged to the supply voltage V+ initially. The plurality of amplifiers are arranged so that the output of a second one of said plurality of amplifiers is connected to one of the charge storage devices, which is in turn connected to a first one of said amplifiers for supplying a charge to the first amplifier. By this configuration, an increase in the output voltage of the second amplifier causes the charge supplied to the first amplifier to increase above the supply voltage V+ such that the output voltage of the load driven by the amplifier circuitry is increased above the supply voltage V+.

||PCT/GB2014/050202||WINN & COALES (DENSO) LIMITED||PEARCE, Steven|
The invention relates to a method of, and apparatus for, protecting structural members from corrosion. Corrosion protection systems are commonly used to protect structural members, such as piles, jetties or petroleum platforms, from corrosion in aquatic environments. Aquatic environments include the marine, limnal, estuarine, paludal and riverine environments. A method of protecting a structural member from corrosion, comprising: covering at least a portion of the structural member with a protective layer (50) for protecting the structural member from corrosion whilst leaving a gap (52) in the protective layer, the gap (52) being surrounded by the protective layer; and providing a cover assembly (5) which includes a cover body (40) having an aperture and a closure member (10) arranged to interfit with the aperture; mounting the assembly over the gap (52) and at least a section of the protective layer (50) adjacent the gap (52); sealing the gap (52) by interfitting the closure member (10) in the aperture to prevent ingress of fluid through the aperture to the structural member; and allowing inspection of the structural member by removing the closure member (10) from the aperture to provide access to the structural member via the aperture and via the opening in the protective layer. The cover assembly (5) alows therefore to close the gap (52) which forms an inspection port.
