  • Patent number: 10686374
    Abstract: A control apparatus performs peak current mode control in which a drive switch is turned off when output of a comparator is inverted during an on-operation period determined by a basic signal. The comparator inverts the output when a reactor current increases to a command current. The control apparatus determines that a switching frequency of the drive switch is required to be switched when the output of the comparator is detected to have not become inverted during the single switching period while the peak current mode control is being performed. The control apparatus sets the switching frequency to a first frequency when the switching determining unit determines that the switching frequency is not required to be switched, and switches the switching frequency from the first frequency to a second frequency lower than the first frequency when the switching determining unit determines that the switching frequency is required to be switched.

  • Publication number: 20200172359
    Abstract: A contact-separation mechanism includes a cam to rotate to move a contact-separation member to and from a counterpart member, a detection target to rotate together with the cam, and a detector to detect presence or absence of the detection target in a detection area of the detector, and circuitry. The cam has a reference range. The circuitry issues a rotation stop instruction of the cam after a target time elapses from passing of the reference range of the detection target through the detection area, and sets the target time based on a duration of an immediately preceding passing of the reference range through the detection area.
