A system includes a hybrid power train having an internal combustion engine and an electrical torque provider that combine to provide a total machine torque. The system includes a controller that functionally executes operations to control the hybrid power train. The controller interprets a total machine torque target value and determines a torque contribution for each of the internal combustion engine and the electrical torque provider in response. The controller interprets a supplemental torque contribution value, and controls the internal combustion engine and the electrical torque provider in response to the torque contributions and the supplemental torque contribution value. The supplemental torque contribution value is applied as a limiting value, a target value, or a prescribed ratio for one or both of the torque contributions.

Repeated Lost Packet Retransmission in a TCP/IP Network

Pub Date: 2012-06-21

Pub Number: US20120155458

Periodically retransmitting of multiply lost TCP/IP packets until either an ACK is received or the timeout finally occurs. By retransmitting the packet more than the once as done with prior art SACK approaches, there is a possibility of not having to wait until the timeout period elapses if one of the other retransmissions successfully transits the network. If the packet is successfully received and acknowledged before the timeout period ends, then the more extensive timeout procedures need not be invoked and traffic is much less affected.

An example power supply includes an energy transfer element, a switch, and a controller. The controller includes a modulator, a drive signal generator, a comparator, and a variable current limit generator. The modulator generates an enable signal having logic states responsive to a feedback signal. The drive signal generator either enables or skips enabling a switch of the power supply during a switching period in response to the logic state of the enable signal. The comparator asserts an over current signal to disable the switch if the switch current exceeds a variable current limit. The variable current limit generator sets the variable current limit to a first current limit in response to one logic state of the enable signal and sets the variable current limit to a second current limit if the enable signal transitions logic states and the over current signal is asserted during the switching period.

The current invention is a new glass windshield with a transition-lens type composition layer between the glass substrates for use in vehicles (airplanes, ships, boats, sailboats, steamers, yachts, jets, and cars) or residential and commercial buildings to protect against sun glare and provide an overall cooling effect on the passengers or inhabitants. Rather than permanently tinting the glass of windshields and windows, the current invention works only when needed. It activates in the presence of sunlight. By not darkening unnecessarily, it avoids the consistent darkening of the interior of a vehicle (airplanes, ships, boats, sailboats, steamers, yachts, jets, and cars), viewing panel of an accessory such as a motorcycle or skydiving helmet, or residential and commercial buildings, as is the problem with tinted glass. The new glass windshield can be used as is or as a detachable or attachable unit.

Certain example embodiments described herein relate to systems and/or methods for systems and/or methods for improved creation of metamodels. More particularly, certain example embodiments described herein relate to automating the creation of metamodels from one or more example models. In certain example embodiments, nodes, edges, and multiplicities of at least one model are automatically identified. A preliminary metamodel is created by adding a metaclass for each automatically identified node and edge. A connection is made between each said added metaclass edge to at least two said added metaclass nodes via first and second associations. Detection of multiple relations is performed by determining whether any of said added metaclass edges are connected to more than two added metaclass nodes. The preliminary metamodel is refined or optimized, e.g., so as to reduce the occurrence of multiple relations.
