  • Patent number: 10976086
    Abstract: An air conditioner and a method for controlling the same are disclosed. The air conditioner implements a multistage expansion scheme by implementing serial connection between electronic expansion valves including in the R410A refrigerant-based air conditioner, and thus guarantees an optimum compression ratio in all cooling/heating load regions. Therefore, although cycle characteristics are changed by changing R410A refrigerant to R32 refrigerant, the air conditioner optimizes the cycle simply by controlling a degree of opening of electronic expansion valves, respectively. As described above, since the cycle optimization is implemented using the multistage expansion scheme in which legacy electronic expansion valves are coupled in series, the design modification is minimized without design modification of requisite constituent elements such as a heat exchanger, system implementation is facilitated, resulting in high efficiency in cost and productivity.

  • Patent number: 10975307
    Abstract: Disclosed is a liquid crystalline epoxy compound wherein an epoxy group is positioned at a side chain of the longer direction of a mesogen group and each of the mesogen group and the epoxy group is connected to the center of the molecular structure through a flexible linkage. Since the liquid crystalline epoxy compound includes an epoxy group positioned at a side chain of the longer direction of a mesogen group and each of the mesogen group and the epoxy group is connected to the center of the molecular structure through a flexible linkage, the interaction between the mesogens in a cured resin product occurs significantly without weakening even after curing, thereby improving the heat conductivity of the resin compound through the active heat transfer between the mesogens.

  • Publication number: 20210101472
    Abstract: A valve system of a fuel system for a vehicle may close a jet pump-side flow path when a pressure of fuel supplied from a fuel pump to an engine is lower than a prescribed fuel pressure at engine start-up, and open the jet pump-side flow path when the pressure of fuel is equal to or higher than the prescribed fuel pressure at the engine start-up, thereby improving cold startability of an engine, and may also allow the jet pump-side flow path to be kept in an opened state between a low load region and a high load region of the engine after the engine start-up, thereby smoothly keeping a function of the jet pump after the engine start-up.
