  • Publication number: 20190356248
    Abstract: A drive control unit that performs vector control of a synchronous motor determines reference phase angles of 3-phase/DQ converters, and a DQ/3-phase converter. When speed of a synchronous motor is equal to or higher than a predetermined threshold value, the reference phase angle is obtained by adding a correction angle such that D-axis voltage feedback output from 3-phase/DQ converter becomes zero to the detection angle of a position detector. And when the speed of the synchronous motor is less than a predetermined threshold value, the reference phase angle is obtained by adding a low speed load angle set in advance to the detection angle of the position detector. In a vector control operation, a power factor is achieved by controlling the D-axis current to be zero.

  • Patent number: 10443085
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method for detecting a nucleic acid using a substance that suppresses, in the labeling step of the post-staining method, detachment of a target nucleic acid that has once hybridized with a capture probe immobilized on a support, which method enables detection of the target nucleic acid with a sensitivity equivalent to or higher than that achieved by a method using sodium ion even in cases where the substance is used at a lower concentration. The method for detecting a nucleic acid comprises the steps of: (1) hybridizing a capture probe with a target nucleic acid to form a double-stranded nucleic acid; bringing the formed double-stranded nucleic acid into contact with a solution containing a labeling substance and a divalent metal cation at a concentration of not less than 10 mM to introduce the labeling substance into the double-stranded nucleic acid; and detecting the labeling substance introduced into the double-stranded nucleic acid.

  • Publication number: 20190187797
    Abstract: In a display manipulation apparatus, a boundary line is defined around a detection target image to partition an inner area and an outer area. Under tracing manipulation in which a finger is moved continuously to trace two or more detection target images, in response to that a moving speed of the finger is equal to or less than a predetermined speed, a control circuit controls a vibration generator to be in an actuated state each time the finger passes through a position of the boundary line, whereas in response to that the moving speed is greater than the predetermined speed, the control circuit controls the vibration generator to be in a de-actuated state either (i) when the finger passes through a position of the boundary line and enters the inner area, or (ii) when the finger passes through a position of the boundary line and exits to the outer area.
