  • Patent number: 11279237
    Abstract: There is provided a vehicle comprising a motor for driving; a power storage device configured to transmit electric power to and from the motor; a solar system configured to generate electric power from sunlight and to perform solar charging that supplies the generated electric power to the power storage device; and a charging relay turned on and off to connect and disconnect the solar system with and from the power storage device. When a short circuit fault occurring on a solar system side of the charging relay is detected in an on state of the charging relay in a current trip, the vehicle turns off the charging relay and keeps the charging relay off at least in the current trip. This configuration enables the vehicle to be driven even in the case where a short circuit fault occurs in the solar system or the like.

  • Patent number: 11014452
    Abstract: An electrically driven vehicle comprises a motor; a power storage device; a first power supply device connected with a power line; a charging device configured to charge the power storage device by using electric power from an external power source; and a second power supply device configured to supply part of the electric power from the external power source to auxiliary machinery via the charging device. The electrically driven vehicle performs a charging efficiency determination process that calculates a charging efficiency as a ratio of a charging power of the power storage device to an input power of the charging device, and that determines whether the charging efficiency is lower than a predetermined efficiency. When the charging efficiency determination process determines that the charging efficiency is lower than the predetermined efficiency, the electrically driven vehicle stops the second power supply device and performs the charging efficiency determination process again.

  • Patent number: 10804715
    Abstract: An electrically driven vehicle comprises a motor, a power storage device, a charging device configured to charge the power storage device by using electric power from an external AC power supply, and a control device configured to control the motor and the charging device. When execution of a drive-ready process is required during a charging termination process that is performed on termination of charging of the power storage device by the charging device, the control device interrupts the charging termination process, performs the drive-ready process and resumes the charging termination process after completion of the drive-ready process. This configuration enables the drive-ready process to be completed promptly even in the case of a start request during the charging termination process.

  • Patent number: 10503403
    Abstract: A control unit determines a storage location of copy target data managed by a first controller module, based on configuration information. When a first transmission buffer included in the first controller module is the storage location of the copy target data, the control unit stores the copy target data in the first transmission buffer. When a second transmission buffer different from the first transmission buffer is the storage location of the copy target data, the control unit stores the copy target data in the second transmission buffer via a corresponding second controller module.

  • Patent number: 9141304
    Abstract: A storage device includes a memory and a control device. The control device allocates a first storage region out of a plurality of storage regions to a first logical address specified by an external device. The control device stores, in the memory, first information associating the first logical address with a first physical address indicating the first storage region. The control device deletes, upon accepting a request for release of a second storage region indicated by a second physical address associated with a second logical address specified by the external device, second information associating the second logical address with the second physical address from the memory. The control device releases, when copy process of copying first data stored in the second storage region is unexecuted, the second storage region after finishing the copy process.
