  • Publication number: 20190376727
    Abstract: If the refrigerant amount balance control is executed, since degrees of opening of indoor expansion valves are narrowed in indoor units whose refrigerant superheating degrees are smaller than an average refrigerant superheating degree, amounts of refrigerant flowing into the indoor expansion valves are decreased. On the other hand, in the indoor unit where the refrigerant superheating degree is higher than the average refrigerant superheating degree, since refrigerant pressure on a downstream side of the indoor expansion valve is also decreased due to the degrees of opening of the indoor expansion valves being narrowed, the difference in pressure between the upstream side and the downstream side of the indoor expansion valve increases and an amount of refrigerant flowing into the indoor unit is increased. Accordingly, cooling ability of the indoor unit increases.

  • Publication number: 20190355304
    Abstract: An object of the disclosure is to achieve a stable display quality without an effect of variation in temperature in a display device including a display element driven by an electric current. The display device is provided with a thermistor as a temperature detector detecting an ambient temperature. A scanning signal amplitude controller changes the voltage level of a gate low voltage in accordance with temperature indicated by temperature data acquired by the thermistor. An in-panel driver controller gives, to a gate driver, a gate clock signal of which the voltage level on a high level side is set at the voltage level of a gate high voltage and the voltage level on a low level side is set at the voltage level of the gate low voltage. The gate driver outputs a scanning signal-G on the basis of the gate clock signal.

  • Patent number: RE47726
    Abstract: An image forming apparatus includes a nip forming member and a transfer bias output device that outputs a transfer bias to form a transfer electric field in a transfer nip between the nip forming member and an intermediate transfer member. Upon transfer of a composite toner image including a particular toner image onto a recording medium in the transfer nip, the transfer bias output device outputs the transfer bias including a first superimposed bias in which a direct current (DC) component is superimposed on an alternating current (AC) component. Upon transfer of the composite toner image without the particular toner image onto the recording medium in the transfer nip, the transfer bias output device outputs one of the transfer bias including a second superimposed bias having a peak-to-peak value of the AC component smaller than that of the first superimposed bias and the transfer bias including only the DC component.
