A redundant power system includes plural load-sharing power supplies connected to a common AC output bus. Identical circuitry is provided in each supply to control the redundant operation and is connected to each of the others via a common redundancy bus. An arbitration circuit in each supply selects a master power supply based on which supply detects the lack of a master supply first via the redundancy bus. A synchronization circuit in each slave supply synchronizes the polarity of the respective AC output with that of the master supply via the redundancy bus. A redundant bias circuit in each supply provides operating power to the redundancy circuitry in the respective supply from a common bulk voltage provided on the redundancy bus. A soft-start circuit in each supply allows all the supplies to start producing power at the AC output bus in unison. An overvoltage correction circuit in each supply detects an overvoltage on the AC output bus and shuts down only the supply which is causing the overvoltage.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
