  • Publication number: 20220302476
    Abstract: A control unit estimates a discharged fuel gas amount, i.e., an amount of fuel gas discharged from the outlet of a cathode flow field, of a fuel exhaust gas introduced from a communication flow path to the inlet of the cathode flow field and then flowing through a cathode. The control unit calculates an oxygen-containing gas amount necessary for dilution at the time of discharge into the atmosphere, from the estimated discharged fuel gas amount, and sets a discharge amount of the air pump, based on the calculated oxygen-containing gas amount.

  • Patent number: 11448156
    Abstract: An engine control apparatus includes an ignition control section and an injection control section. When partial compression ignition combustion is carried out, the ignition control section causes an ignition plug to carry out: main ignition in which a spark is generated in a late period of a compression stroke or an initial period of a expansion stroke to initiate the SI combustion; and preceding ignition in which the spark is generated at earlier timing than the main ignition. Also, when the partial compression ignition combustion is carried out, the injection control section causes the injector to inject fuel at such timing that the fuel exists in a cylinder at an earlier time point than the preceding ignition. Energy of the preceding ignition is set to be lower when an in-cylinder temperature specified by an in-cylinder temperature specification section is high than when the in-cylinder temperature is low.

    Abstract: A geoid calculation data is collected easily. A geoid calculation data collection device of the present invention comprises an inertial measurement data acquisition part, a comparison data acquisition part, and a recording part. In the inertial measurement data acquisition part, data related to velocity, position, and attitude angle is acquired as inertially-derived data based on an output of an inertial measurement part having a three-axis gyro and a three-axis accelerometer attached to a moving body. In the comparison data acquisition part, data related to velocity is acquired as comparison data from a source other than the inertial measurement part. In the recording part, inertially-derived data and comparison data are recorded in association with each other. In the inertial measurement part, a bias stability is acquired that allows error arising from plumb line deviation to be distinguished to a predetermined degree.
