  • Publication number: 20200104654
    Abstract: Print data for a printing apparatus to print a line-width detection image including first multiple patches is obtained. Each of the first multiple patches includes multiple lines arranged side by side in a first direction, each line having a first width in the first direction and extending in a second direction intersecting the first direction. The distance between the centers in the first direction of two lines adjacent in the first direction of the multiple lines is different from one another. The widths of lines included in an image to be printed by the printing apparatus are corrected based on information on print result of the line-width detection image by the printing apparatus.

  • Publication number: 20200104659
    Abstract: An object is to reduce a difference between a target line width and a width of a line that is printed by a printing apparatus by correcting the line width in accordance with color information indicating a color of the line in a case where an image is printed by the printing apparatus based on image data including the line based on print data. The present disclosure is an image processing apparatus having an acquisition unit configured to acquire a drawing command in which a color and a line width of a line are specified, a determination unit configured to determine a correction amount for correcting the line width specified in the drawing command based on the color of the line specified in the drawing command, and a correction unit configured to correct the line width specified in the drawing command in accordance with the correction amount.

  • Publication number: 20200104658
    Abstract: A width in a first direction of a line in image data corresponding to an image to be printed by a printing apparatus is corrected, based on information on print result of line-width detection images printed based on line-width detection image data in a raster format which is generated by performing rasterization processing on line-width detection image data in a vector format. In the line-width detection image data in the vector format, a distance between centers of the widths in the first direction of two lines adjacent in the first direction in each line-width detection image is an integral multiple of a rasterization resolution in the rasterization processing.

  • Publication number: 20190214157
    Abstract: A control rod operation generates a rod insertion block signal during operation of a reactor. Four neutron detector assemblies including a plurality of LPRMs arranged in an axial direction of a core are arranged adjacent to a plurality of insertion selection control rods, respectively, which are simultaneously inserted into the core. Neutron flux ratio calculation units are arranged in each of the neutron detector assemblies, and ratios (neutron flux ratios BA/AA, CA/AA, and DA/AA) of an average LPRM signal of the respective LPRMs at positions B, C, and D to an average LPRM signal of the respective LPRMs at a position A which is closest to the control rod insertion end of the core are calculated. When the largest neutron flux ratio out of the neutron flux ratios exceeds a set neutron flux ratio, a rod insertion block signal which is generated by a local range rod insertion monitor is output.

  • Publication number: 20160052396
    Abstract: When a temperature rise is required for only a first battery out of first and second batteries, a first relay is turned on to connect the first battery with a first booster circuit (i.e., connect the first battery with a motor side). When a temperature rise is required for only the second battery, on the other hand, a second relay is turned on to connect the second battery with a second booster circuit (i.e., connect the second battery with the motor side).

  • Patent number: 8906533
    Abstract: A battery module includes; a plurality of battery cell packs; a plurality of heat dissipation plates and a cooler that absorbs heat radiated from the battery cell packs and absorbed by the heat dissipation plates. The battery cell packs and the heat dissipation plates being alternately stacked. Each of the heat dissipation plates has an interlayer plate portion that is in contact with corresponding two of the battery cell packs and side wall plate portions that extend in the stacking direction with respect to the interlayer plate portion on both end sides of the interlayer plate portion and that are in contact with the cooler at outer faces thereof, and each of the heat dissipation plates has a low thermal resistance region between the interlayer plate portion and each side wall plate portion, the low thermal resistance region having a lower thermal resistance than the interlayer plate portion.

  • Publication number: 20140218043
    Abstract: A capacitor has modules each consisting of a plurality of capacitor cells stacked together, and a radiator including heat exchange portions connected to a vehicle body at the ground potential is disposed adjacent to the modules. If an electric leakage occurs to any of the capacitor cells, a leakage detection voltage as a potential difference between the potential of the cell under the leakage and the ground potential is correlated with a module voltage, to provide a constant ratio, from which it is determined that the capacitor is in an abnormal condition.
