  • Publication number: 20160086543
    Abstract: A flash phenomenon of OLEDs at the time of power source ON of a display device is suppressed. The OLED emits light when reference potentials VSS and VDD are applied from power source lines to the OLED's cathode and anode respectively. While the anode can be connected to one of the power source line via a driving TFT and a lighting switch, a reset potential VRS can be applied to the anode via a reset switch and the driving TFT. The lighting switch is turned OFF and the reset switch and the driving TFT are turned ON so that VRS is applied to the anode, before starting the application of the reference potentials to the power source lines. Following this state, the application of the reference potentials to the power source lines starts, and thus a normal operation of allowing the OLED to emit light starts.

  • Patent number: 9157654
    Abstract: A heat pump system includes a heat pump circuit, a heat load circuit, first and second heat exchangers, a flow rate regulation mechanism and a controller. A first passage connects branching and converging portions of the heat load circuit. A second passage connects the branching and converging portions without converging with the first passage. The first and second heat exchanger perform heat exchange between discharge refrigerant from the low and high stage compression mechanisms and fluid in the first and second passages, respectively. The flow rate regulation mechanism regulates a ratio between flow rates through the first and second passages. The controller controls the flow rate regulation mechanism so that the fluid is allowed to flow to the first heat exchanger when a temperature of refrigerant flowing into the first heat exchanger is lower than a heating target temperature of converged fluid flowing through the heat load circuit.
