  • Patent number: 10544729
    Abstract: A valve control device controls a valve drive mechanism on the basis of a degree-of-opening signal for a valve and a startup signal for an engine, and includes: a drive signal generating unit that, when it is determined on the basis of the startup signal that the engine is stated, generates a test drive signal for test-driving the valve before the generation of a normal drive signal associated with normal driving of the valve; and an abnormality determining unit that, on the basis of the degree-of-opening signal during the test driving, determines whether or not an abnormality has occurred in the drive mechanism. The drive signal generating unit stops generating the test drive signal and the normal drive signal when the abnormality determining unit determines that the abnormality has occurred in the drive mechanism.

  • Publication number: 20190264108
    Abstract: The spontaneous orientation aid for a liquid crystal composition provides storage stability and allows liquid crystal molecules to be vertically aligned without a PI layer when added to a liquid crystal composition. The spontaneous orientation aid for a liquid crystal composition includes a compound having a partial structure represented by formula (i), particularly in which Ki1 is represented by one of formula (K-1) to formula (K-11). When used in a liquid crystal composition, the spontaneous orientation aid can adsorb to substrates sandwiching a liquid crystal composition (liquid crystal layer) and keep the liquid crystal molecules aligned in a vertical direction. The spontaneous orientation aid makes it possible to align liquid crystal molecules without a PI layer (to induce vertical alignment of liquid crystal molecules under no applied voltage and to achieve horizontal alignment of the liquid crystal molecules under an applied voltage).
