Abstract: The invention provides a motor comprising a stator and a rotor. The stator core includes a laminated stator core made of laminated stator core plates in which straight cut surfaces are formed on a circular outer peripheral surface of the laminated stator core plates. The straight cut surfaces of the laminated stator core plates are circumferentially displaced every predetermined laminated stator core plates so that the straight cut surfaces are uniformly distributed in an axial and a circumferential direction of the laminated stator core. Therefore, a flow passage for lubricating oil is ensured, while local magnetic saturation of the stator core is dissolved and a cogging torque and an induced voltage waveform distortion rate are improved.
Abstract: In order to make a displacement type compressor be able to reliably start without increasing an outside diameter dimension of the compressor while using a self-start synchronous motor having high energy efficiency, the displacement type compressor according to the invention includes the self-start synchronous motor which starts as an induction-motor and performs synchronous operation by performing synchronization pull-in almost at a synchronous rotational frequency, a compression part having a compression chamber which compresses a working fluid, and a hermetic container which houses the self-start synchronous motor and the compression part. The displacement type compressor is provided with a start load reducing means which reduces a load of the compression part at startup and is placed at the compression part in the hermetic container.
Abstract: A converter includes a converter circuit 1 having a plurality of bridge-connected semiconductor switching devices for converting AC power into DC power, a smoothing condenser connected in parallel to the DC side of the converter circuit and a current detector provided in a condenser circuit to control a condenser current flowing through the smoothing condenser to be a set value. The condenser current is controlled to be the set value (e.g. zero) to thereby reduce the capacity of the smoothing condenser and make the converter small.
Abstract: A permanent magnet synchronous motor includes a rotor having cage windings and permanent magnets placed on an inner peripheral side of these cage winding bars, where the permanent magnets are placed and polarized so that a ratio ?/? between a circumferential pitch angle ? of magnetic flux distribution of the permanent magnets and a magnet pole pitch angle ? is between 0.67 and 0.91.
Abstract: The invention relates to a vacuum insulation panel which can be used as an insulator for a refrigerator requiring heat insulation to be provided and also to a refrigerator incorporating such a vacuum insulation panel. The invention particularly relates to an arrangement for preventing convection spaces from being formed where an edge of the vacuum insulation panel is folded back. The vacuum insulation panel includes a core which has an inner film bag in which a flexible inorganic fiber laminate is accommodated, and an outer barrier bag which is made of gas-impermeable film such as metallic foil laminated film and which accommodates the core. The inner film bag includes a welded portion and a ventilation portion. The outer barrier bag has a depressurized interior and has been sealed by welding. An edge of the inner film bag is placed in an edge of the outer barrier bag.

Abstract: A vacuum insulating material which minimizes the possibility of absorption of moisture or gas components by its core material during storage in the manufacturing process, improves manufacturing efficiency, and maintains and enhances heat insulation performance. A vacuum insulating material comprises: a core material as an inorganic fiber aggregate; a getter material which absorbs core material gas components; and an envelope with a gas barrier property which encases the core material. The getter material is contained in a housing area made by slitting the core material obliquely with respect to its surface or thickness and the opening of the housing area is narrowed by overlapping.
Abstract: An air conditioner and a power line communication system high in reliability and free of malfunction facilitates the installation work such as the wiring. The air conditioner for conducting communication through a power line includes a bridge unit connected to at least an outdoor unit through a transmission line, and at least an indoor unit connected from the power line through a blocking filter. A side of the bridge unit far from the outdoor unit is connected between the blocking filter and the indoor unit. The bridge unit subjects a signal from the outdoor unit to spread spectrum modulation and transmits it by superposing the resulting signal on the power line. The superposed signal is received and demodulated by the indoor unit.
Abstract: A hot-water supply system heats water through heat exchange between high-temperature refrigerant of a heat pump circuit and water of a water circulating circuit. The system is an instantaneous water heater unit for instantaneously heating, at a water heat exchanger, water supplied through a water supply pipe and supplying hot water to a using end unit. Therefore, a large-capacity hot-water storage tank is not needed. Sufficient heat of condensation to heat water can not be produced, because pressure conditions of the heat pump circuit is not stabilized just after the start of operation. Therefore, during a short period of rising time, hot water stored in a hot-water supply tank and water from the water heat exchanger are mixed and the mixture is supplied to keep the hot water at a preset temperature. Therefore, it is possible to use a smaller hot-water supply tank.
Abstract: A scroll compressor has a movable auxiliary member provided by mounting it between a frame member and a circling scroll member. The movable auxiliary member has a stopper portion for causing a contact plane to contact a pane of a fixed scroll member and a ring portion having an opposed plane annularly formed to face the pane of the circling scroll member, is further supported elastically by an elastic support in a state of being energized in a direction of the circling scroll member, has the contact plane of the stopper portion caused to contact the pane in this elastic support state to keep a limit position with the opposed plane facing the pane of the circling scroll member, and goes back elastically to the frame member side when the circling scroll member goes back to the frame member side and the pane is pressed to contact the opposed plane.
