  • Publication number: 20230208168
    Abstract: A power transmitting device is configured to perform contactless power supply using a power transfer signal to a power receiving device that supplies power to a power supply target. The power transmitting device includes a power transmitting antenna, a region indicator unit, and processing circuitry. The power transmitting antenna is configured to transmit a power transfer signal to the power receiving device. The region indicator unit emits a visible beam. Based on a transmitted power that is transmitted as the power transfer signal, the processing circuitry derives a power receivable region, in which the power receiving device is capable of receiving the power transfer signal as a received power greater than or equal to a specified threshold. The processing circuitry uses the region indicator unit to emit the visible beam toward at least a part of the power receivable region.

  • Patent number: 10605871
    Abstract: A method for determining a state of a rechargeable battery includes obtaining a complex impedance measured by applying AC voltage or AC current to a rechargeable battery that is subject to determination and determining a state of the rechargeable battery based on the obtained complex impedance. The determining a state of the rechargeable battery includes determining whether or not a first capacity shift is occurring based on a comparison of a value of the complex impedance at a predetermined frequency with a first determination value used to determine a negative electrode capacity shift, and when determined that the first capacity shift is not occurring, determining whether or not a second capacity shift is occurring based on a comparison of a gradient of the complex impedance with respect to a real axis in a diffusion resistance region with a second determination value used to determine a positive electrode capacity shift.
