  • Publication number: 20210143684
    Abstract: A contactless power feeding apparatus includes a plurality of primary coils mounted on a road and a power feed controller which uses a portion of the primary coils as a power transmitting coil to achieve delivery of electrical power from the power transmitting coil to a secondary coil mounted in a vehicle. The power feed controller uses a selected primary coil that is one of the primary coils other than the power transmitting coil to decrease a leakage of magnetic flux arising from excitation of the power transmitting coil. Instead of the selected primary coil, the secondary coil may be used to reduce the leakage of magnetic flux.

  • Patent number: 10818422
    Abstract: In a multilayer coil component, an end of a lower coil layer and an end of a connecting part are directly overlapped, and the end of the lower coil layer includes a contact edge positioned on a side of the connecting part and being in contact with the connecting part and a non-contact edge positioned on a side opposite to the connecting part and not being in contact with the connecting part. Then, the contact edge and the non-contact edge are not overlapped when viewed from a laminated direction. Consequently, a propagation distance of a crack becomes longer as compared with the case where an end face is parallel to the laminated direction, effectively suppressing advance of the crack. Suppressed advance of a crack in this manner makes the multilayer coil component provide a high component strength as a whole.
