WHIPgroup obtained patent allowance simply by filing an Appeal Brief. The invention relates to a method and control system for controlling a power converter to mimic a synchronous generator when connected to an electrical grid. The Patent Office had rejected all claims as being obvious over two references. In the Appeal Brief, WHIPgroup argued that the combination of references fail to teach all the limitations of the claimed invention. Rather than answer the Appeal Brief, the Patent Office issued a Notice of Allowance for all pending claims. Accordingly, allowance was secured by WHIPgroup without the need to file a Reply Brief or a Request for Continued Examination (RCE).
