  • Patent number: 10461657
    Abstract: A power conversion device includes a first cooler configured to cool a power module, a second cooler configured to cool at least one electronic component, and a housing configured to house the first cooler and the second cooler. The power conversion device also includes a connecting coolant passage formed in an inner wall of the housing such that the connecting coolant passage connects the first cooler to the second cooler. The power conversion device can have the connecting coolant passage formed in the housing, without enlarging a size of the housing. The strength of a side wall of the housing is enhanced because the connecting coolant passage is formed in the inner wall of the housing.

  • Patent number: 10453674
    Abstract: A brush is moved from a central position to an outer periphery position while the brush is contacted with an upper surface of a substrate being rotated at a first rotational speed. In this way, a flat region of the substrate is scrub-cleansed. Thereafter, the brush is contacted with a bevel region of the substrate being rotated at a second rotational speed lower than the first rotational speed. In this way, the bevel region of the substrate is scrub-cleansed. Thereafter, while the substrate is rotated at a third rotational speed higher than the second rotational speed, the brush is disposed at an overlapping region cleaning position. In this way, an overlapping region of the flat region and the bevel region are scrub-cleansed.
