  • Patent number: 10465600
    Abstract: Provided is a control device for an internal combustion engine, which is configured to: acquire an internal combustion engine required opening degree of the waste gate valve based on the operation state of the internal combustion engine. When the internal combustion engine required opening degree is full closing, full closing learning control is carried out by converting the target opening degree of the waste gate valve to a target opening degree for full closing learning so as to bring about a state in which the waste gate valve fully closes the exhaust bypass passage. When a state in which the position of the actuator does not change consequently continues for a set period, it is considered that the fully closed state is brought about and the full closing learning is finished, and a correction amount for the feedback control is decreased.

  • Publication number: 20190299029
    Abstract: A charged particle beam treatment apparatus includes an irradiation unit that irradiates a patient with a charged particle beam, a lesion area position detection unit that detects a position of a lesion area of the patient, and a control unit that controls the irradiation unit, based on the position of the lesion area detected by the lesion area position detection unit. The control unit adjusts an irradiation position of the charged particle beam in a plane direction orthogonal to an irradiation axis of the charged particle beam so as to track variations in the position of the lesion area in the plane direction. When the position of the lesion area in a depth direction along the irradiation axis is out of a predetermined range, the control unit stops irradiation, and when the position of the lesion area falls again within the predetermined range, the control unit resumes the irradiation.
