  • Patent number: 10260681
    Abstract: The problem of the present invention relates to providing a valve device that, even in a case where the valve device is miniaturized, is capable of preventing a gas discharge valve from malfunctioning in response to the heat generated by an electromagnetic actuator. A valve device 100 includes: an opening and closing valve 130 that is arranged in a gas flow passage 120; and a fusible plug valve 160 that is provided with a valve body 161 operating in response to an increase in temperature of a gas, and discharges the gas to the outside of a high-pressure gas container 20, wherein the valve body of the fusible plug valve is arranged on the upstream side in the gas flow passage than the opening and closing valve on a path through which the gas flows from the supply port 23 of the high-pressure gas container toward the fuel cell 10.

  • Patent number: 10153526
    Abstract: A battery unit, a bottomed case, a plate-shaped cooling plate, and first heat transfer material are included. The cooling plate is fastened to a bottom part of the case from the outside of the case, and can cool the battery unit via the bottom part of the case. The first heat transfer material have a plastic property and are held between the bottom part of the case and the cooling plate. The bottom part of the case has heat transfer material housings that house excess first heat transfer material therein when the cooling plate has been fastened to the case.
