  • Publication number: 20190319550
    Abstract: A power conversion device includes three inverters configured to convert DC power of DC buses into single-phase AC power, and a controller configured to control the three inverters so as to generate three-phase AC power. The controller is configured to generate a fundamental wave command for generating one-phase AC power constituting the three-phase AC power, and to generate an adjustment wave command having triple the frequency of the fundamental wave command. Additionally, the controller is configured to output a phase voltage command, in which the adjustment wave command is superimposed on the fundamental wave command, and to determine an initial phase of the adjustment wave command to be offset from an initial phase of the fundamental wave command so as to reduce a voltage ripple occurring in the DC buses at double the frequency of the fundamental wave command.

  • Patent number: 9906679
    Abstract: An image can be formed by using a developer containing a luminescent substance, without impairing the finish of the area in which the image is formed. An image forming device 100 includes a print function section 124 which forms a first image included in a plurality of images to be formed on a single page, based on image formation data indicating the image to be formed, on a medium by using a first developer, and forms a second image included in the plurality of images, based on the image formation data, in a non-image-forming area in which the first image is not formed on the medium, by using a second developer containing a luminescent substance.

  • Patent number: 7162487
    Abstract: The present invention aims to effectively restrict access of a general user to an inappropriate information piece at the judgment of an information manager. In order to pick up a desired information from an information storage medium or an information communication network while excluding inappropriate information, an information manager inputs suitability of information (a teacher signal) to an information presented at a user terminal 21 to a group profile learning unit 16 and prepares a group profile reflecting suitability of the information as specified by the information manager using the teacher signal. At a score calculating unit 13, a score signal indicating suitability of information is calculated for each information using the group profile, and access of an information user in a group to inappropriate information is restricted.

  • Patent number: 6757650
    Abstract: A random code vector reading section and a random codebook of a conventional CELP type speech coder/decoder are respectively replaced with an oscillator for outputting different vector streams in accordance with values of input seeds, and a seed storage section for storing a plurality of seeds. This makes it unnecessary to store fixed vectors as they are in a fixed codebook (ROM), thereby considerably reducing the memory capacity.
