  • Publication number: 20200392387
    Abstract: In an air conditioner that uses a refrigerant mixture containing at least 1,2-difluoroethylene, high efficiency is achieved. The motor rotation rate of a compressor (100) can be changed in accordance with an air conditioning load, and thus a high annual performance factor (APF) can be achieved. In addition, an electrolytic capacitor is not required on an output side of a rectifier circuit (21), and thus an increase in the size and cost of the circuit is suppressed.

  • Publication number: 20200363369
    Abstract: Provided are a gas sensor element which is not prone to decreased precision of gas detection due to a decrease in temperature of a gas to be measured, and a gas sensor. An aspect of the present invention is a gas sensor element for detecting a specific gas included in a gas to be measured, the gas sensor element being provided with a solid electrolyte, a reference electrode, a measurement electrode, and a gas restricting layer. The thickness dimension WA of a portion of the gas restricting layer that is in contact with the measurement electrode, the thickness dimension WB of a portion of the gas restricting layer that is in contact with the solid electrolyte, and the thickness dimension WC of the measurement electrode satisfy the conditions WB>WA and WB?WA>WC. In a gas sensor element provided with such a gas restricting layer, the heat capacity of the gas restricting layer can be increased without hindering the gas to be measured from reaching the measurement electrode.

  • Publication number: 20200363112
    Abstract: In an air conditioner that uses a refrigerant mixture containing at least 1,2-difluoroethylene, high efficiency is achieved. In the air conditioner (1), a compressor (100, 200) can be driven without interposing a power conversion device between an AC power source (90, 190) and a motor (70, 170). Thus, it is possible to provide the air conditioner (1) that is environmentally friendly and has a relatively inexpensive configuration.

  • Publication number: 20200355136
    Abstract: A controller for an engine estimates a temperature of the exhaust gas and controls the engine according to the estimated exhaust temperature. The controller changes the air-fuel ratio to a stoichiometric air-fuel ratio or leaner. The controller calculates the progress of combustion on the basis of signals of sensors, and estimates an exhaust temperature. In the case where the air-fuel ratio is the stoichiometric air-fuel ratio, the controller estimates the exhaust temperature on the basis of the progress of the combustion, the engine temperature, and a first relationship that is at least defined between the progress of the combustion and the exhaust temperature, . In the case where the air-fuel ratio is lean, the controller estimates the exhaust temperature on the basis of the progress of the combustion, the engine temperature, and a second relationship that differs from the first relationship.

  • Patent number: 10294835
    Abstract: When a stop request to the engine is issued, it is determined whether or not all of the drive cams are large cams. When it is determined that at least one of the small cams is included in the drive cams, the engine is continued to drive for a while and a switch control for switching the drive cams from the small cams to the large cams is executed within the duration. A self-holding type solenoid is used to switch between the small cams and the large cams. In the switch control, a permission to stop the engine is output at a timing when the “pin protrudable section” of the final cylinder #2 has elapsed.
