|PCT/NZ2013/000184||AUCKLAND UNISERVICES LIMITED||BUDGETT, David Mortimer|
The invention relates to inductive power transfer (IPT) systems, and has particular relevance to control of IPT systems, and to operation of IPT system primary power supplier. There is provided a method for controlling an IPT system primary power supply having a switched resonant circuit; the method comprising: determining the value of a parameter of the system; determining an energy injection switching pattern having a duration dependent on the parameter value; controlling the resonant circuit according to the determined energy injection switching pattern.

||PCT/NZ2013/000185||COULTER, Grace||COULTER, Grace|
The invention relates to a system for using solar energy to ventilate a space, particularly the interior of a building, although other structures may also be ventilated such as crop stores, desalination plants, glass houses and power generation plants. The system can operate in different modes so that solar energy is used to heat or cool the space, as required. Part of the system is a solar heat collector, which absorbs available solar energy. The solar heat collector includes two separate channels able to receive air from different sources and pass them in counter flow. The channels transfer heat between them using an efficient turbulence-inducing structure that enables the system to operate in the different modes to heat or cool a space.

|PCT/NZ2013/000178||A WARD ATTACHMENTS LIMITED||WARD, Simon Robert|
The invention relates to a grapple assembly in which a single actuator is used to operate the arms of the grapple but each arm is able to at least partly open and/or close independently of the other arms. A grapple assembly comprises an elongate core comprising a linear actuator; means for connecting the first end of the elongate core to a grapple hoist; a plurality of grapple arms connected to the second end of the elongate core by a pivotal connection oriented substantially perpendicularly to the elongate core; a plurality of elastically deformable connectors, each connector having coupled directly or indirectly to a connection region of the elongate core and coupled to one of the grapple arms at a point on the respective grapple arm spaced apart from the pivotal connection of the respective grapple arm to the elongate core, wherein the linear actuator is able to be actuated to move the connection region of the elongate core relative to the second end of the elongate core to open and/or close the plurality of grapple arms, and wherein the elastically deformable connectors permit each grapple arm to at least partly open and/or close independently of the other grapple arms upon exertion of an external force on the respective grapple arm.

|PCT/NZ2013/000181||DEAR, Lance Allen||DEAR, Lance Allen|
A method of obtaining fumigant for re-use or disposal, comprising the steps of: a) passing a gaseous flow comprising used fumigant through a container which contains fumigant absorbent so that the fumigant is at least partially absorbed by the absorbent; b) causing the absorbent to be heated so that it releases at least some of the absorbed fumigant to a gaseous flow; c) capturing the released fumigant and causing it to be cooled to -5°C to 25°C and to have a pressure of 1 bar to 15 bar; and receiving the fumigant from step c) and causing it to have a temperature of -5°C to - 45°C and to have a pressure of 15 to 45 bar.

|PCT/NZ2013/000177||MARINE PROPULSION TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED||BUNN, Murray Noel|
In a marine conversion of a "Duramax" V8 diesel engine, each bank of cylinders has a jacketed exhaust manifold comprising a solid elongated casting including coolant galleries and a central exhaust duct. Recirculating coolant cools each cylinder then enters the exhaust manifold through separate apertures aligned with openings made by removal of a frost plug. Each manifold coolant aperture has a controlled diameter, ensuring most of the coolant passes along the length of the engine then along the manifold yet enough coolant cools each cylinder. The coolant then traverses and cools a manifold extension and a turbocharger.

|PCT/NZ2013/000179||AUCKLAND UNISERVICES LIMITED||ANDERSON, Iain Alexander|
The present invention provides a mechanically-actuated switch comprising a deformable conductive element providing a conductive path between a first terminal and a second terminal, wherein the effective geometry of the conductive element changes suddenly upon deformation to cause a disproportionately large change in a resistance between the first and second terminals. The switch can be made from lightweight and soft materials, and is particularly suited for integration with dielectric elastomer devices. Also disclosed are various circuits and a method for controlling circuits including the switch.
