  • Publication number: 20200266644
    Abstract: A storage battery system includes a cell module including storage battery cells, a battery management unit configured to maintain a contactor having a normally open contact in a closed state, while being supplied with power, and a power supply control circuit that DC to DC converts the power of the cell module for supply to the battery management unit. The power supply control circuit includes an SOC estimator that determines from a voltage of the cell module whether or not the cell module is in an overdischarge state, and after determining that the cell module is not in the overdischarge state, outputs a status signal to the power supply control circuit. In response to no receipt of the status signal from the SOC estimator, the power supply control circuit interrupts the power supply to the battery management unit from the cell module.

  • Patent number: 10491183
    Abstract: A resonant power feeding system that can provide high power transmission efficiency between a power feeding device and a power reception device without dynamically controlling the oscillation frequency in accordance with the distance between the power feeding device and the power reception device. High power transmission efficiency between the power feeding device and the power reception device is obtained by addition of a structure for adjusting the matching condition to both the power reception device and the power feeding device. Specifically, a transmission-reception circuit and a matching circuit are provided in both the power reception device and the power feeding device, and wireless signals for adjusting the matching circuit are transmitted and received through a resonant coil. Thus, the power feeding device can efficiently supply power to the power reception device without adjusting the oscillation frequency.
