Herein, ?T represents a difference between an average molten steel temperature (° C.) and a solidification starting temperature (° C.) of the molten steel, and FEMS represents a stirring intensity index shown by a function of a molten steel flow velocity in the long edge direction imparted by the electro-magnetic stirring and a casting velocity.

  • Patent number: 10534295
    Abstract: A fixing apparatus includes a controller that determines a duty ratio of a drive signal to be a first duty ratio if an alternating voltage of a commercial alternating current power supply detected by a voltage detector is less than a predetermined voltage, and to determine the duty ratio of the drive signal to be a second duty ratio, which is less than the first duty ratio, if the alternating voltage is greater than the predetermined voltage. The controller also supplies the drive signal, set to the determined duty ratio, to a driving circuit if a temperature detected by a temperature detector is less than a first temperature, and not to supply the drive signal to the driving circuit if the temperature detected by the temperature detector is not less than the first temperature.
