  • Publication number: 20220154663
    Abstract: An engine system is provided, including a controller which estimates a mass ratio (G/F) of intake air inside a cylinder (containing fresh air and burnt gas) to fuel, and controls devices of an engine at a given engine speed so that, while a demanded engine load is a first load, at least part of a mixture gas inside the cylinder combusts by flame-propagation when the estimated G/F is below a first G/F, and the entire mixture gas combusts by compression ignition when the estimated G/F is above the first G/F, whereas while the demanded load is a second load (>the first load), at least part of the mixture gas combusts by flame-propagation when the estimated G/F is below a second G/F (<the first G/F), and the entire mixture gas combusts by compression ignition when the estimated G/F is above the second G/F.

  • Publication number: 20220154666
    Abstract: An engine system is provided, including a controller which estimates an intake-valve-closing temperature inside a cylinder. When an engine operates at a given speed and a demanded engine load is a first load or a second load (>the first load), the controller controls so that a mixture gas inside the cylinder combusts by compression ignition, and controls so that, at the first load, the entire mixture gas combusts by compression ignition when the intake-valve-closing temperature is above a first temperature, and at least part of the mixture gas combusts by flame propagation when the intake-valve-closing temperature is below the first temperature, whereas at the second load, the entire mixture gas combusts by compression ignition when the intake-valve-closing temperature is above a second temperature (<the first temperature), and at least part of the mixture gas combusts by flame propagation when the intake-valve-closing temperature is below the second temperature.

  • Patent number: 11156569
    Abstract: A X-ray fluorescence spectrometer of the present invention simultaneously generates an analytical pulse-height width profile and a narrow pulse-height width profile that are distributions of intensities of secondary X-rays (7) against scan angles (2?) set by an interlocking unit (10) on the basis of a differential curve which is output by a multichannel pulse-height analyzer (13), as well as a predetermined analytical pulse-height width for an analytical line that is a primary reflection line and a predetermined narrow pulse-height width that is narrower than the analytical pulse-height width. Identification of the analytical lines is performed for the analytical pulse-height width profile and the narrow pulse-height width profile, and any analytical line identified only in the narrow pulse-height width profile is added to the analytical lines identified in the analytical pulse-height width profile to obtain an identification result of the analytical lines.

  • Patent number: 10902438
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus is provided and operates as a managing server that distributes incentive using transfer device information with respect to content. A communication unit receives inter-device transfer information with respect to output content from an information providing device, the information being in the form of device identifiers for at least the information providing device and one or more user devices that executed content transfers. A controller then executes processing to designate the incentive recipients as being the device managers associated with the acquired device identifiers. In so doing, incentive can be distributed to the managers or users of user devices that relay content between an information providing device and a product purchaser.

  • Patent number: 10778072
    Abstract: A control device moves a split claw (11) holding a projecting portion (4d) of an eighth-layer coil segment (4) in a counterclockwise direction D1. At this time, the control device moves first to third extended blades (13a) to (13c) in an outward direction D3 so that the projecting portion (4d) of the eighth-layer coil segment (4) is bent in the outward direction D3. Then, the control device moves the first to third extended blades (13a) to (13c) in an inward direction D4. Through the above steps, the projecting portion (4d) of the eighth-layer coil segment (4) is bent in the counterclockwise direction D1 while being bent in the outward direction D3. As a result, a return force tending to return in the inward direction D4 is generated by an elastic deformation force.
