By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Computer Weekly News -- From Alexandria, Virginia, VerticalNews journalists report that a patent by the inventors Breidenthal, Robert E. (Seattle, WA); Casasanta, III, Vincenzo (Woodinville, WA); Colannino, Joseph (Bellevue, WA); Goodson, David B. (Bellevue, WA); Prevo, Tracy A. (Seattle, WA); Rutkowski, Richard F. (Seattle, WA); Wiklof, Christopher A. (Everett, WA), filed on July 31, 2013, was published online on April 12, 2016.

The patent's assignee for patent number 9310077 is CLEARSIGN COMBUSTION CORPORATION (Seattle, WA).

News editors obtained the following quote from the background information supplied by the inventors: "Combustion processes can emit broadband acoustic energy caused by turbulent flow, which may be perceived as noise in the form of a 'roar' and may be referred to as white noise. Combustion processes can also emit narrowband or discrete frequency noise, which may be referred to as tonal noise. Such white noise and tonal noise may be relevant to issues of combustion performance, the environment, health, and other issues."

As a supplement to the background information on this patent, VerticalNews correspondents also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent: "In various embodiments, noise emitted by a combustion system can provide information about a combustion reaction. The information can be used to control a system for applying one or more electric field(s), electrical charge(s), and/or voltage(s) to the combustion reaction. White noise and/or tonal noise emitted by the combustion reaction can be used individually or in combination. The system for applying one or more electric field(s), electrical charge(s), and/or voltage(s) to the combustion reaction can be used to modulate white noise and/or tonal noise, for example, to attenuate the white noise and/or the tonal noise. Additionally or alternatively, the system for applying one or more electric field(s), electrical charge(s), and/or voltage(s) to the combustion reaction can be used to provide other aspects of control to the combustion reaction.

"According to an embodiment, a system for applying electricity to a combustion reaction includes a power supply and one or more electrodes operatively coupled to the power supply. The one or more electrodes can be configured to apply an electric field, a charge, a voltage, or a combination thereof to a combustion reaction. An acoustic transducer can be configured to receive an acoustic signal from the combustion reaction and output a corresponding electrical signal. A controller can be operatively coupled to the acoustic transducer and the power supply. The controller can be configured to control one or more outputs from the power supply responsive to the electrical signal from the acoustic transducer.

"According to an embodiment, a method for controlling the application of electricity to a combustion reaction uses acoustic feedback from the combustion reaction to determine, at least in part, characteristics of the applied electricity. Applying electricity can include applying a voltage or charge to the combustion reaction, and/or applying an electric field to flue gases or to the combustion reaction. Acoustic feedback is received from the combustion reaction. The voltage, charge, and/or electric field is applied responsive to the acoustic feedback.

"Various embodiments include a method for controlling the application of an electric field proximate to a combustion reaction. In some examples, the method can include applying an electric field proximate to the combustion reaction. In several examples, the method can include receiving acoustic feedback from the combustion reaction. In some examples, the method can include modifying the electric field responsive to the acoustic feedback.

"According to some embodiments, a non-transitory computer readable medium can carry computer-readable instructions configured to cause an electronic controller to perform steps for controlling the application of electricity to a combustion reaction responsive to receiving acoustic feedback from the combustion reaction. In various examples, the steps include causing a voltage or a charge to be applied to the combustion reaction. In some examples, the steps include receiving acoustic feedback from the combustion reaction. In several examples, the steps include causing the voltage or the charge to be modified responsive to the acoustic feedback.

"According to several embodiments, a non-transitory computer readable medium can carry computer-readable instructions configured to cause an electronic controller to perform operations for controlling the application of an electric field to a combustion reaction. In various examples, the steps include causing an electric field to be applied to a combustion reaction. In some examples, the steps include receiving acoustic feedback from the combustion reaction. In several examples, the steps include causing the electric field to be modified responsive to the acoustic feedback."
