  • Patent number: 10260531
    Abstract: A hydraulic drive system includes control valve and operating devices, a variable displacement pump, and a flow regulator. When an operating lever inclination angle becomes a value, a control valve opening area becomes a reference. When the operating lever inclination angle maximizes, the opening area maximizes. The flow regulator: until the operating lever inclination angle becomes the value, increases the pump discharge flow rate with the inclination angle, so a differential pressure between pump discharge and actuator load pressures is constant; when the operating lever inclination angle becomes the value, controls the pump discharge flow rate, so a control valve passing flow rate is an actuator maximum flow rate when the differential pressure is constant; and when the operating lever inclination angle is between the value and the maximum, defines a maximum pump discharge flow rate, so the pump discharge flow rate is kept to the actuator maximum flow rate.

  • Patent number: 10247083
    Abstract: A straddle vehicle is capable of discharging high-temperature outdoor air having passed through a radiator with high efficiency. A motorcycle 1 includes a radiator, a fan, and a fan shroud. The radiator lowers the temperature of a coolant by heat exchange between outdoor air and the coolant. The fan suctions outdoor air, to make the outdoor air hit the radiator arranged upstream in an outdoor air flow direction. The fan shroud covers at least part of the fan, and discharges high-temperature outdoor air, which is outdoor air suctioned by the fan and having passed through the radiator, to outside. The fan shroud has a discharge opening and an air guide. The discharge opening allows the high-temperature outdoor air to be discharged outside. The air guide guides the high-temperature outdoor air such that it is discharged through the discharge opening in a direction including a laterally outward component.

  • Publication number: 20190097428
    Abstract: A power-on/off command is output to a breaker for switching when a frequency difference between a plurality of electric power supply sources is within a predetermined range and a phase difference between the plurality of electric power supply sources is within a predetermined range, in switching of electric power supply between the plurality of electric power supply sources. A generator drive rotation speed of a transmission device is feedback controlled so that the frequency difference is maintained at a value within the predetermined range and the phase difference is maintained at a value within the predetermined range when the detected frequency difference is within the predetermined range and the detected phase difference is within the predetermined range. A generator rotation speed command is calculated by adding to the rotation speed command of the transmission device an output value obtained by subjecting the detected phase difference to a proportional-integral-control.
