  • Patent number: 11450871
    Abstract: A system for controlling gas flow in a fuel cell circuit includes a fuel cell stack and a valve designed to adjust gas flow through the circuit. The system further includes an ECU that is designed to determine a target flow rate of the gas through the valve. The ECU is further designed to determine a flow compensation value corresponding to an amount of compensation of the target flow rate of the gas through the valve that compensates for fluid accumulation or decumulation in the fuel cell circuit. The ECU is further designed to determine a compensated target flow rate of the gas through the valve based on the target flow rate and the flow compensation value. The ECU is further designed to determine a desired valve position of the valve based on the compensated target flow rate and to control the valve to have the desired valve position.

  • Patent number: 11436614
    Abstract: A server device stores data sent from a client device together with data identification information and stakeholder identification information that identifies a stakeholder operating the client device. A controller determines a number of stakeholders included in the data, and, in a case where the data stores information on stakeholders of a plurality of n organizations, leaves information on a specific stakeholder unrewritten and rewrites information of other stakeholders with optional information to generate n types of management data. The controller generates first hash value for each of the n types of management data, and controls n transactions including the first hash value to be issued to a blockchain, and transmits the transaction.

  • Publication number: 20220179350
    Abstract: An image forming apparatus includes: a feed tray that contains printing paper therein; a user authentication unit that authenticates a user who is permitted to print; a paper loading detection unit that detects printing paper loaded into the feed tray; a memory device that stores a user authenticated as a paper-supplementing user; a paper feeding mechanism that feeds the printing paper from the feed tray; a paper jam detection unit that detects a paper jam; and a controller that controls a print job. The controller, when a paper jam has occurred, determines whether or not the paper jam is due to the paper-supplementing user having loaded the printing paper in an improper manner. Upon determining that the paper jam is due to the paper-supplementing user having loaded the printing paper in an improper manner, the controller, subsequently when the paper-supplementing user uses, requests that a loading condition be checked.

  • Publication number: 20220100136
    Abstract: An image forming apparatus includes: a transporter; an image former; a reflective optical sensor; an image density adjuster; and a controller. The image former includes: a photoreceptor; a charger; an exposer; a developer; a transferor; and a fuser. The reflective optical sensor is provided opposite to the photoreceptor across a conveyance path. During image density adjustment, the controller forms a predetermined patch toner image on the photoreceptor, irradiates the patch toner image with light, and control the image density adjuster to adjust image density based on reflected light from the patch toner image. During image forming, the controller causes the reflective optical sensor to emit light on timing that a predetermined leading edge area of the recording area passes, and decides based on reflected light therefrom whether a width in the main scanning direction of a recording medium is longer than a predetermined reference length.
