Abstract: A vehicle control device includes: dual-system control circuits that control power supply to dual-system winding sets of a motor; and dual-system rotation detection circuits. The control circuits calculate an absolute rotation angle of the motor, and, when a power source is turned off, store an absolute rotation angle of the motor at that time. The control circuits start when the power source is turned on and the absolute value of a difference between an absolute rotation angle that was stored when the power source was turned off last time and an absolute rotation angle that is calculated when the power source is turned on this time is equal to or smaller than a given threshold value, regardless of whether an abnormality has occurred in one of the dual-system rotation detection circuits or an abnormality of the dual-system rotation detection circuits is not determinable.

Abstract: The present invention provides a novel method for identifying a molecular structure by a single crystal X-ray analysis. A single crystal that gives an X-ray diffraction spectrum sufficient for determining a structure of a molecule can be efficiently obtained by including a test molecule in a metal complex, and then crystallizing the test-molecule included in the metal complex. By analyzing this single crystal by an X-ray analysis, it is possible to determine a structure of the test molecule without obtaining a single crystal of the test molecule. With the novel method according to the present invention, the structure of a test molecule in a trace amount of a sample can also be determined.
