  • Patent number: 10435076
    Abstract: A vehicle engine compartment assembly includes an upper longitudinal beam and a front subframe disposed under the upper longitudinal beam. The vehicle engine compartment assembly further includes a middle longitudinal beam and a connecting supporting member. The middle longitudinal beam is disposed between the upper longitudinal beam and the front subframe. The connecting supporting member is connected to each of the middle longitudinal beam, the upper longitudinal beam and the front subframe. In the vehicle engine compartment assembly, the middle longitudinal beam is added between the upper longitudinal beam and the front subframe, and the upper longitudinal beam, the middle longitudinal beam and the front subframe are connected together to form a stable structure having a shape of “”. When the vehicle suffers collision at a high speed, the impact force is transferred through three load transfer paths to improve the energy absorption effect.

  • Patent number: 10424806
    Abstract: The present invention provides a non-aqueous redox flow battery comprising a negative electrode immersed in a non-aqueous liquid negative electrolyte, a positive electrode immersed in a non-aqueous liquid positive electrolyte, and a cation-permeable separator (e.g., a porous membrane, film, sheet, or panel) between the negative electrolyte from the positive electrolyte. During charging and discharging, the electrolytes are circulated over their respective electrodes. The electrolytes each comprise an electrolyte salt (e.g., a lithium or sodium salt), a transition-metal free redox reactant, and optionally an electrochemically stable organic solvent. The redox reactant of the positive electrolyte is a dialkoxybenzene compound, and the redox reactant of the negative electrolyte is a viologen compound or a dipyridyl ketone.
