WHIPgroup secured a favorable decision by the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB), reversing all obviousness rejections of claims directed to a rotating electrical machine. In particular, WHIPgroup successfully argued that the prior art motor did not include a plurality of serially connected switching cells but instead switch sets connected independently of each other.
