  • Patent number: 9714882
    Abstract: When a liquid level is changed even though an inflow of a heat medium into a specific heat transfer tube bundle is stopped, it is determined that there is no abnormality in the heat transfer tube bundle in which the inflow of the heat medium is stopped and then another heat transfer tube bundle is inspected. Next, when the inflow of the heat medium into the specific heat transfer tube bundle is stopped not to cause the change in the liquid level, it is determined that there is an abnormality in the heat transfer tube bundle to which the inflow of the heat medium is stopped. Thus, it is possible to determine that there is an abnormality in the heat transfer tube bundle in which the inflow of the heat medium is stopped.

  • Patent number: 9344126
    Abstract: Disclosed are a receiving apparatus, a receiving method, and a program capable of reliably obtaining predetermined information. In a case where a broadband signal where the same control information is arranged in different frequency bands is received and processed, a frequency where the control information is stably received is detected, and the control information is obtained again using the detected frequency. This frequency detection is performed by detecting a frequency capable of avoiding a no-signal band in a signal array of the broadband signal determined based on the obtained control information and the like. This technology can be applied to a receiving apparatus that receives a signal conforming to a DVB-C2 standard.
