  • Patent number: 11495378
    Abstract: A grain-oriented electrical steel sheet for a stacked transformer core. The steel sheet having a sheet thickness t, where t and an iron loss deterioration ratio obtained by subjecting the steel sheet under elliptic magnetization satisfy the following relations: (i) when t?0.20 mm, the iron loss deterioration ratio is 85% or less; (ii) when 0.20 mm<t<0.27 mm, the iron loss deterioration ratio is 80% or less; and (iii) when 0.27 mm?t, the iron loss deterioration ratio is 75% or less. The iron loss deterioration ratio is calculated from ((WA?WB)/WB)×100, where WA is iron loss under 50 Hz elliptic magnetization of 1.7 T in a rolling direction and 1.0 T in a direction orthogonal to the rolling direction, and WB is iron loss under 50 Hz alternating magnetization of 1.7 T in the rolling direction.

  • Patent number: 10168079
    Abstract: When a refrigerant flow-path switch performs switching to a first refrigerant flow path, an interior condenser heating air blown into an interior as a first temperature-adjustment subject and an auxiliary heat exchanger are connected in parallel, and the auxiliary heat exchanger heats air blown to a battery as a second temperature-adjustment subject. In contrast, when the refrigerant flow-path switch performs switching to a second refrigerant flow path, an interior evaporator cooling air blown into the interior and the auxiliary heat exchanger are connected in parallel, and the auxiliary heat exchanger cools the air blown to the battery. With this arrangement, one common auxiliary heat exchanger can cool or heat the air for the battery, thereby leading to reduction in size of an entire refrigeration cycle device.
