  • Patent number: 10727672
    Abstract: Inrush current to a load at the time of a power outage is reduced. A power control apparatus includes an inverter and a controller. When the controller detects a power outage in a power grid, the controller performs control so that output voltage supplied from the inverter to a switching device rises to an operating voltage. The operating voltage is the voltage at which the switching device operates to switch from electric power supplied to load devices from the power grid to electric power from the inverter. The controller also performs control to maintain the output voltage at or below the operating voltage when the output voltage reaches the operating voltage and then performs control so that the output voltage rises to a predetermined voltage exceeding the operating voltage.

  • Patent number: 10712192
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus includes a communication interface and a controller. The communication interface receives, from a sensor container, information indicating an orientation of the sensor container. The controller, based on the information indicating the orientation of the sensor container, calculates a calculated value indicating a remaining amount of contents of the sensor container. The controller determines an estimated value of the remaining amount on the basis of the calculated value. The communication interface transmits the estimated value indicating the remaining amount to an external device. When the calculated value indicating the remaining amount decreases by a first predetermined value or more within a predetermined time period, the controller does not perform the determination of the estimated value on the basis of the calculated value.
