  • Patent number: 10794811
    Abstract: An apparatus which detects particulate matter is provided. This apparatus estimates a volume of water inside an exhaust passage using estimation sections. When an estimated volume of water is larger than a water drainage threshold, an element portion is heated using a heater by the first temperature range controller, in a temperature range which resists water-induced cracking independent of a volume of water droplets. If the estimated volume of water is less than a water drainage threshold, the water drainage determination section determines that the water drainage of the exhaust passage is completed. Additionally, if it is estimated that the water drainage is completed, the element portion is heated by a second temperature controller at temperature lower than a starting temperature of combustion of particulate matter and in order to repel water adhered onto the element portion in a water-repellent temperature range for a predetermined period.

  • Patent number: 10771207
    Abstract: Provided is a terminal including a receiver, which, in operation, receives a Channel State Information Reference Signal (CSI-RS) candidate list for CSI-RS configuration information. The CSI-RS candidate list is indicated as Radio Resource Control (RRC) control information for respective terminals. The terminal further includes circuitry, which, in operation, specifies at least one CSI-RS resource information of a measurement target based on the CSI-RS candidate list, and measures a reception power using the specified CSI-RS resource information. The terminal also includes a transmitter, which, in operation, reports the result of the reception power measurement. A reception power measurement method is also provided.

  • Publication number: 20200281000
    Abstract: The invention relates to methods for improving a scheduling request transmission between a UE and a base station. The transmission of the scheduling request is postponed, by implementing a threshold that the data in the transmission buffer has to reach, before a transmission of the scheduling request is triggered. In one variant, the data in the transmission buffer needs to reach a specific amount, to trigger a scheduling request. The invention refers to further improvements: the PDDCH monitoring time window is delayed after sending a scheduling request; the dedicated scheduling request resources of the PUCCH are prioritized differently such that low-priority scheduling requests are transmitted less often.

  • Publication number: 20200267664
    Abstract: A base station includes a transmitter which transmits an offset value for a transmission power of a sounding reference signal (SRS) to a terminal apparatus; and a receiver which receives the SRS at the transmission power controlled by the terminal apparatus. The offset value used to control the transmission power is set within one of a first offset setting range having a first lower limit value and a first upper limit value and a second offset setting range having a second lower limit value and a second upper limit value. A difference between the first and second lower limit values equals a difference between the first and second upper limit values. A step width of the offset values within the first offset setting range equals a step width of the offset values within the second offset setting range. The SRS is a periodic SRS (P-SRS) or an aperiodic SRS (A-SRS).

  • Patent number: 10746105
    Abstract: A control device for a power generation system whereby power is generated by a first power source that operates by burning a fuel. The control device identifies, on the basis of a pressure difference in a prior-stage mechanism that supplies the fuel to the first power source, a fuel capacity that compensates for the pressure difference in the prior-stage mechanism. The pressure difference is the difference between a pressure set for the fuel before a load change in the prior-stage mechanism and a pressure set for the fuel after the load change in the prior-stage mechanism. The control device calculates a fuel supply command value, which is a command value for adjusting the amount of fuel supplied to a fuel supply device that supplies the fuel to the first power source, and is output to the fuel supply device using a fuel supply acceleration command value.

  • Publication number: 20200221353
    Abstract: When detecting occurrence of an event for transmitting a measurement report of a radio condition of a cell at a frequency set for a base station apparatus, to the base station apparatus (3) communicating with a terminal apparatus (2), the terminal apparatus (2) in a wireless communication system (1) creates a measurement report including information indicating radio conditions of cells at a frequency at which the event occurred and at another different frequency. The base station apparatus (3) controls whether or not to perform handover of the terminal apparatus (2) to another cell, on the basis of the measurement report transmitted from the terminal apparatus (2). Thereby, there is provided a wireless communication system in which a base station apparatus and the terminal apparatus are communicable with each other using multiple frequencies, the wireless communication system being capable of shortening time required for handover.
