  • Publication number: 20220295675
    Abstract: Provided is a cooling system that includes a first cooling passage in which a first cooling object is cooled by first coolant, a flow passage that supplies the first coolant to a second cooling object from the first cooling passage, a flow rate regulation mechanism that regulates a flow rate of the first coolant flowing in the first cooling passage, and a controller that controls the flow rate regulation mechanism. The controller controls the flow rate regulation mechanism so that the flow rate of the first coolant flowing in the first cooling passage is lower when temperature of the first cooling object is lower than temperature of the first coolant, than the flow rate when the temperature of the first cooling object is equal to or higher than the temperature of the first coolant.

  • Patent number: 11397133
    Abstract: A misfire detection device for an internal combustion engine is provided. A mapping takes time series data of instantaneous speed parameters as inputs. Each instantaneous speed parameter corresponds to one of a plurality of successive second intervals in a first interval. The instantaneous speed parameters correspond to the rotational speed of the crankshaft. The first interval is a rotational angular interval of the crankshaft in which compression top dead center occurs. The second interval is smaller than an interval between compression top dead center positions. The mapping outputs a probability that a misfire has occurred in at least one cylinder that reaches compression top dead center in the first interval. The mapping data defining the mapping has been learned by machine learning.
