  • Publication number: 20160190831
    Abstract: A voltage control method for a secondary battery includes: calculating a voltage difference between a first voltage value as an initial voltage of the secondary battery and a second voltage value as a voltage of the secondary battery after being charged by constant-current charging during a predetermined time period; calculating an internal resistance of the secondary battery based on the voltage difference and a value of constant current applied in the constant-current charging; calculating an additional voltage based on the internal resistance and a value of constant current applied during voltage control, and calculating a target voltage by adding the additional voltage to a predetermined required voltage; controlling the voltage by charging the secondary battery with constant current until the target voltage is reached; and determining that the secondary battery is defective when the target voltage is not reached within a predetermined permissible time period while the voltage is controlled.

  • Publication number: 20110117937
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a technique of providing a push delivery service. A data center transmits attribute information on positions and radii of areas A through J to a user station. The user station compares the attribute information with a self-predicted position to predict that the user station itself lies in the area A through J. When the user station confirms that the user station lies in the area A through J, and requests the data center for delivery information attached to the area A through J on the basis of a result of confirmation. The data center transmits delivery information to the user station in response to the request. The user station knows itself in one of plural push delivery areas A through J, and decreases the frequency of positioning and pinpoints delivery of information such as shop advertisements is possible.
