  • Patent number: 7774117
    Abstract: An engine output controller provided in a bulldozer includes an output curve storage device storing a plurality of output curves of an engine and an output curve changing device selecting and shifting to one of the plurality of output curves. The output curve changing device, when a pressure of a blade tilt cylinder is equal to or more than a predetermined value, calls and shifts to a higher output curve from the output curve storage device. When an oil pressure is supplied to the tilt cylinder to tilt a blade and an operation is performed without reducing a soil pressing speed in this condition, the output curve changing device shifts the current output curve to the higher output curve to drive the engine. However, in many other cases, the output curve is automatically switched to a lower output curve to reduce an output of the engine. Thus, the fuel consumption is improved.

  • Patent number: 7772792
    Abstract: To rotate a rotary body at a constant velocity, a swing control device of an electric rotary excavator controls rotation of the rotary body with a small first torque command value. By contrast, when operating a swing lever for acceleration, the rotation is controlled with a larger second torque command value. The first torque command value is generated based on a deviation between a velocity command value for an electric motor that rotates the rotary body and a measured velocity of the rotary body, and the second torque command value has a larger absolute value than the first torque command value and is obtained by adding a feed-forward torque command value to the first torque command value.
