  • Publication number: 20200106338
    Abstract: A rotating electric machine includes a rotor rotatably supported and also including a magnet portion; a stator including a stator winding; and a plunger configured to displace the rotor and the stator relative to one another along an axial direction of the rotating electric machine. The stator includes a slotless structure in which at least one of no magnetic teeth and slot is provided. Thus, an attracting force acting between the magnet portion and the stator is weakened, thereby the rotor and the stator are easily displaceable relative to each other by the plunger.

  • Patent number: 10608258
    Abstract: The present invention aims to provide a catalyst that makes it possible to reduce an amount of solid electrolyte mixed and improve initial performance of a fuel cell, and also a method for producing the catalyst. The present invention relates to a catalyst for a solid polymer fuel cell, which has sulfo groups (—SO3H) on catalyst particles. In TEM-EDX analysis, a ratio (IS/IPt) of a sulfur peak intensity (IS) to a platinum peak intensity (IPt) on the catalyst particles is within a range of 0.0044 or more and 0.0090 or less. The catalyst makes it possible to reduce the amount of solid electrolyte added and also a fuel cell with excellent initial performance, and thus contributes to a practical use of a fuel cell.

  • Publication number: 20200009980
    Abstract: In a charging control apparatus, a supply power requestor requests an external power source to output supply power having a constant voltage and a constant current. A voltage conversion instructor instructs a voltage conversion device to perform voltage conversion of the supply power from the external power source such that converted supply power has a charging voltage and a charging current that are respectively within allowable charging-voltage range and allowable charging-current range. The voltage conversion instructor instructs the voltage conversion device to output the converted supply power to the power storage to thereby charge the power storage.
