Abstract: A power train device for a vehicle is provided with a selector valve that is switched between a first state in which oil discharged from an electric oil pump is able to be supplied as a hydraulic fluid to an engagement hydraulic chamber of a vehicle-starting frictional engagement element, and a second state in which the oil is able to be supplied as a lubricating oil to the vehicle-starting frictional engagement element through a first lubricating oil supply circuit, depending on a magnitude of a discharge pressure of a mechanical oil pump.
Abstract: In a multilayer coil component, an end of a lower coil layer and an end of a connecting part are directly overlapped, and the end of the lower coil layer includes a contact edge positioned on a side of the connecting part and being in contact with the connecting part and a non-contact edge positioned on a side opposite to the connecting part and not being in contact with the connecting part. Then, the contact edge and the non-contact edge are not overlapped when viewed from a laminated direction. Consequently, a propagation distance of a crack becomes longer as compared with the case where an end face is parallel to the laminated direction, effectively suppressing advance of the crack. Suppressed advance of a crack in this manner makes the multilayer coil component provide a high component strength as a whole.
