  • Publication number: 20190136810
    Abstract: A fuel supply device includes a flange unit and a pump unit. The flange unit includes a flange main body for closing an opening formed in an upper wall of a fuel tank. The pump unit includes a joint member that is connected to the flange main body so that both components may be movable relative to each other in the vertical direction. The interval in the vertical direction between the flange main body and the joint member is restricted from going below a minimum vertical interval. The minimum interval occurs when a stand-off portion provided as part of the flange main body and a connecting plate portion provided as part of the joint member come into mutual contact with each other and abut each other in the vertical direction.

  • Patent number: 9240743
    Abstract: Provided is a power-generation control device capable of appropriately using a drive belt looped around a power generator and an internal-combustion engine mounted on a vehicle. The device monitors a difference between an actual generated current of a rotating electrical machine and an estimated generated current estimated from estimated power-generation torque for controlling power generation of the rotating electrical machine, which corresponds to a power-generation torque command, or the like. When a difference equal to or more than a predetermined value occurs between the actual and the estimated generated currents, the power-generation control device limits the estimated power-generation torque so as to be reduced, and further limits the estimated power-generation torque with use of learning limiting power-generation torque calculated based on the estimated power-generation torque at a time when the difference has occurred between the actual generated current and the estimated generated current.

  • Patent number: 9211805
    Abstract: A power source current control unit (102) controls a magnetic-field current PWM control signal (PW) for PWM-controlling a magnetic-field current of an electric rotating machine (3) so that the value of a power source current flowing in a power source apparatus (2) can be controlled in a non-energization manner to be zero or a value near to zero; in the case where the power source voltage stability determination unit (104) determines that during a predetermined period, variation in a power source inter-terminal voltage value (V) of the power source apparatus (2) is within a predetermined range, the power source SOC estimation unit (101) estimates the state of charge of the power source apparatus (2), based on the voltage value (V) of the power source apparatus (2).

  • Patent number: 9030156
    Abstract: In a power supply system provided with an assembled battery supervisory device which supervises an assembled battery composed of storage elements connected in series with one another, the system using the assembled battery is obtained which makes it possible to supply electric power to the assembled battery supervisory device, with a simple arrangement. The arrangement is such that electric power for the assembled battery supervisory device is obtained from a part of storage elements constituting the assembled battery. The cell balancer is driven based on the average consumption electric current of the assembled battery supervisory device so as to suppress a deviation in the amount of charge between those storage elements which supply electric power to the assembled battery supervisory device, and those storage elements which do not supply electric power to the assembled battery supervisory device, resulting from the average consumption electric current of the assembled battery supervisory device.

  • Patent number: 8870710
    Abstract: A vehicle drive control system includes a motor coupled with the driving shaft of an internal combustion engine so that torque can be transmitted to the drive wheels when fuel supply to the engine is cut off. The vehicle travels in a creeping mode in this state while motoring of the engine is performed through driving force of the motor. When accelerator depression is detected, fuel injection into a cylinder waiting for the intake stroke of the engine is begun and the engine is started. The crank angle position at a time when fuel injection is started is utilized as a reference position. When the crankshaft of the engine rotates from the reference crank angle position to a predetermined crank angle position, driving by the motor is stopped and the vehicle is then driven by the engine.

  • Patent number: 8751138
    Abstract: Provided is an automatic stop and restart device for an engine that is capable of suppressing occurrence of an abnormal condition even if a transmission state is changed during an engine restart process after an engine restart condition is satisfied in an automatic engine stop process. A controller performs the automatic engine stop process and the engine restart process. If a determined state of a transmission is a drive range, a transmission state determination unit drives a pinion gear thrust unit at timing determined by a first pinion gear thrust timing determination unit. If the determined state of the transmission is a non-drive range, the transmission state determination unit drives the pinion gear thrust unit at timing determined by a second pinion gear thrust timing determination unit.
