  • Patent number: 10801784
    Abstract: A heat exchanger includes: multiple flat tubes that extend in a second direction intersecting a first direction which is an air flow direction and that are disposed at intervals in a third direction that intersects the first direction and the second direction; and multiple plate-like heat transfer fins that extend along the third direction and that are disposed at intervals along the second direction. The heat exchanger causes refrigerant in the flat tubes to exchange heat with the air flow that passes through heat exchange spaces formed by adjacent flat tubes and adjacent heat transfer fins when viewed from the first direction. The heat transfer fins each have a heat transfer fin front side surface that is one main surface, a heat transfer fin back side surface that is the other main surface.

  • Patent number: 10795282
    Abstract: An image forming apparatus includes a photosensitive drum, a developing section, a voltage applicator, a detector, a calculating section, and an evaluating section. The detector detects values of first and second currents. The first current flows between the photosensitive drum and the developing section during formation of an electrostatic latent image. The second current flows between the photosensitive drum and the developing section when the electrostatic latent image is not being formed. The calculating section calculates a toner charge-to-mass ratio. The evaluating section evaluates reliability of a calculation result of the toner charge-to-mass ratio by comparing the second current value to a reference value. The reference value is of a reference current flowing between the photosensitive drum and the developing section when the electrostatic latent image is not being formed, and indicates a current value detected after adjustment to at least one of the photosensitive drum and the developing section.

  • Publication number: 20200298828
    Abstract: A driving system includes an engine, a motor generator, an output unit, a power transmission mechanism, and a controller. The output unit outputs at least one of an engine driving force generated by the engine or a motor driving force generated by the motor generator. The power transmission mechanism selects a first drive mode in which both of the engine driving force and the motor driving force are transmitted to the output unit, and a second drive mode in which only the engine driving force is transmitted to the output unit. The controller controls the power transmission mechanism to select the first drive mode when a first fuel consumption rate of the engine in the first drive mode is or is estimated to be lower than a second fuel consumption rate of the engine in the second drive mode.
