Powered nose aircraft wheel system

A powered nose aircraft wheel system (130) for an aircraft (12) includes landing gear (104) that extends from the aircraft (12). A wheel axel (136) is coupled to the landing gear (104). A wheel (134) is coupled to the wheel axel (136). A wheel motor (106) is coupled to the wheel axel (136) and the wheel (134). A controller (120) is coupled to the wheel motor (106) and rotates the wheel (134). A method of taxiing an aircraft (12) includes permitting the wheel (134) of the aircraft (12) to freely spin during the landing of the aircraft (12). Power is transferred from an auxiliary power unit (73) of the aircraft (12) to the wheel motor (106). The wheel (134) is rotated via the wheel motor (106). The aircraft (12) is steered and the speed of the wheel (134) is controlled via one or more controllers selected from an onboard controller (18, 118, 120) and an offboard controller (45, 58, 59).

Apparatus for thermal and plasma enhanced vapor deposition and method of operating

A method, computer readable medium, and system for vapor deposition on a substrate that disposes a substrate in a process space of a processing system that is vacuum isolated from a transfer space of the processing system, processes the substrate at either of a first position or a second position in the process space while maintaining vacuum isolation from the transfer space, and deposits a material on said substrate at either the first position or the second position. As such, the system includes a first assembly having a process space configured to facilitate material deposition, a second assembly coupled to the first assembly and having a transfer space to facilitate transfer of the substrate into and out of the deposition system, a substrate stage connected to the second assembly and configured to support and translate the substrate between a first position in the transfer space to a second position in the process space. The system includes a sealing assembly configured to impede gas flow between the process space and the transfer space during translation of the substrate within the process space.

A method, computer readable medium, and system for treating a substrate in a process space of a vacuum processing system is described. A vacuum pump in fluid communication with the vacuum processing system and configured to evacuate the process space, while a process material supply system is pneumatically coupled to the vacuum processing system and configured to supply a process gas to the process space. Additionally, the vacuum pump is pneumatically coupled to the process supply system and configured to, at times, evacuate the process gas supply system.

Method for Selectively Enabling and Disabling Read Caching in a Storage Subsystem

A mechanism for selectively disabling and enabling read caching based on past performance of the cache and current read / write requests. The system improves overall performance by using an autonomic algorithm to disable read caching for regions of backend disk storage (i.e., the backstore) that have had historically low cache hit ratios. The result is that more cache becomes available for workloads with larger hit ratios, and less time and machine cycles are spent searching the cache for data that is unlikely to be there.

RF shutter

The present invention generally comprises an RF shutter assembly for use in a plasma processing apparatus. The RF shutter assembly may reduce the amount of plasma creep below the substrate and shadow frame during processing, thereby reducing the amount of deposition that occurs on undesired surfaces. By reducing the amount of deposition on undesired surfaces, particle flaking and thus, substrate contamination may be reduced.

Ethanol plant process

InactiveUS20090166172A1Shorten process cycleIncrease ethanol productionOrganic compound preparationBeer fermentationEthanol fuelProcess engineering
The present invention conserves water by reducing the heat load placed on a cooling tower during the ethanol fuel production process. An air cooler is placed between the ethanol vapor condenser and the cooling tower thereby minimizing process temperature spikes before water enters the cooling tower. This, in turn, shortens the process cycle thereby increasing ethanol production. During certain climactic conditions, the cooling tower may be completely bypassed, thereby conserving more water and increasing ethanol production.
