  • Patent number: 10802078
    Abstract: Multiple voltage monitoring circuits each detect the voltage across at least one corresponding cell from among multiple cells. A current monitoring circuit detects the current that flows through the multiple cells. When the length of a period during which the current that flows through the multiple cells is substantially zero exceeds a predetermined judgment time, the current monitoring circuit asserts a detection signal. Upon detecting an assertion of the detection signal, each voltage monitoring circuit measures the voltage across at least one corresponding cell.

  • Publication number: 20200300183
    Abstract: Provided is a marine engine, including: a piston; and a compression ratio controller configured to execute lowering processing of moving a top dead center position of the piston toward a bottom dead center side when an engine rotation speed falls within a resonance occurrence range set in advance. A geometrical compression ratio is reduced, and a resonance stress caused by a torsional vibration in a rotary system can thus be suppressed while suppressing a decrease in thermal efficiency compared with a case in which retarding control is applied to a fuel injection timing or a closing timing of an exhaust valve.

  • Patent number: 10705147
    Abstract: The present invention improves the detection accuracy of the state of charge of a battery. A coulomb count value CC is generated by integrating a charge/discharge current IBAT of a battery (S100). An SOC value SOC1 is calculated (S102). Based on an SOC-OCV characteristic predetermined for the battery, an OCV value OCV1 corresponding to the value SOC1 is generated (S112). A voltage VBAT of the battery is detected (S104). A voltage drop VDROP1 between OCV1 and a detected value VBAT1 of the voltage VBAT is generated (S114). A value OCV2 greater than the minimum operating voltage of the system by ?V, which corresponds to the voltage drop VDROP1, is generated (S116). Based on the SOC-OCV characteristic, an SOC value SOC2 corresponding to OCV2 is generated (S118). Based on the value SOC2, at least one of the values SOC1, CC, CCFULL, and SOC-OCV characteristics is corrected.

  • Publication number: 20200201365
    Abstract: The flow rate control unit 1 is comprised with each of the flow rate control devices 11 connected to (juxtaposedly mounted on) the manifold 2 by the joint 91 interposed between each of the flow rate control devices 11 and the manifold 2. Each of the flow rate control devices 11 can be attached to or detached from the manifold 2 by manually operating (attaching/detaching) the clip 93 without using a tool. Because there is no need to secure space to insert a tool between the adjacent flow rate control devices 11, the mounting pitch between the adjacent flow rate control devices 11 (joints 91) can be reduced to the minimum, allowing miniaturization of the flow rate control unit 1.
