  • Patent number: 10039215
    Abstract: A power converter includes a housing, a circuit element, and a cover. The housing includes a first space and a second space. In the first space, a circuit substrate is disposed. In the second space, a passage for a cooling fluid is disposed. The circuit element is disposed on the circuit substrate in the first space and protrudes into the second space. The cover covers at least a portion of the circuit element and includes a first portion and a second portion. The first portion protrudes from near the circuit substrate into the second space, and defines a first region that has a first area. The second portion protrudes from the first portion, and defines a second region that has a second area. The first area is larger than the second area as viewed from a direction in which the circuit element protrudes.

  • Publication number: 20180196400
    Abstract: Provided is a plant operation support apparatus including a plant simulator, a predictor, and a predicted KPI deriver. The plant simulator simulates a state at a current time or a predetermined time of a plant based on information obtained from the plant, to output an estimated value at the current time or the predetermined time of process data in the plant. The predictor predicts a state at a predetermined future time of the plant based on the estimated value and outputs a predicted value of the process data in the plant. The predicted KPI deriver derives a predicted KPI which is an index for monitoring the state at the future time of a task to be monitored in plant operation based on the predicted value.
