  • Publication number: 20230015377
    Abstract: An image forming apparatus includes an exposure unit that reflects a laser beam emitted from a light source by a polygon mirror having a plurality of reflection surfaces to form a latent image on a photosensitive member, and a control unit that controls the image forming apparatus in a plurality of operation modes including a normal mode and a low speed mode having a slower process speed than the normal mode. The control unit controls the polygon mirror to use all of the plurality of reflection surfaces to reflect the laser beam when in the normal mode. When in the low speed mode, the control unit makes the process speed faster than 0.5 times that of the normal mode, rotates the polygon mirror faster than in the normal mode, and controls the polygon mirror to use only some of the plurality of reflection surfaces to reflect the laser beam.

  • Publication number: 20220332305
    Abstract: A control device starts supply of electric power to a catalyst device when a state of charge of a main battery decreases to a value which is equal to or less than an optimal power-supply state of charge set based on a travel load while a vehicle is traveling in an EV travel mode. The control device corrects input electric power of the catalyst device to a value less than the value at the time of starting of supply of electric power when the travel load decreases after the supply of electric power has been started.
