  • Patent number: 10680448
    Abstract: A voltage detection circuit detects the voltage of a plurality of serially connected cells in a power storage unit. The voltage detection circuit receives a supply of a power supply voltage from both ends of the plurality of cells. A DC-DC converter converts the voltage between both ends of the plurality of cells into another DC voltage. An adjustment circuit adjusts the power consumption of the plurality of cells. The adjustment circuit operates using the DC voltage generated by the DC-DC converter as the power supply voltage.

  • Patent number: 10590598
    Abstract: A heat-insulating protective member for skid posts contains a needled blanket of inorganic fibers. At least some of the needled blanket has, disposed therein, an impregnation part where an oxide-precursor-containing liquid is adherent in an undried state. The impregnation part has a water content of 50-400 parts by mass per 100 parts by mass of the inorganic fibers of the impregnation part. The water content of the heat-insulating protective member is 50-400 parts by mass per 100 parts by mass of the inorganic fibers of the heat-insulating protective member. The oxide-precursor-containing liquid contains ingredients that, upon burning, yield a composition containing Al2O3 and CaO. The oxide-precursor-containing liquid is adherent in an amount of 2-50 parts by mass in terms of oxide amount per 100 parts by mass of the inorganic fibers of the impregnation part. A molar ratio of Al/Ca, in the whole impregnation part is 10-330.
