  • Publication number: 20190161068
    Abstract: A multiple drive source-equipped vehicle includes two temperature detection parts configured to detect a temperature of external air. When a heating operation is performed at a time of vehicle driving by a first drive source, the controller determines whether or not an external air temperature is lower than a predetermined value based on a detection temperature of a temperature detection part of which a detection temperature is higher among the two temperature detection parts. The controller continues a heating operation by a first heating apparatus when it is determined that the external air temperature is not lower than the predetermined value. The controller operates the second drive source and performs a heating operation by a second heating apparatus when it is determined that the external air temperature is lower than the predetermined value.

  • Patent number: 4943496
    Abstract: The present invention provides a molten carbonate type fuel cell comprising two electrodes as anode and cathode, an electrolyte plate and separators in a single unit and a battery of the unit cells stacked. The electrodes comprise a porous plate of an electron-conducting material such as nickel containing particles of ceramics such as magnesium oxide uniformly dispersed therein in an amount of 2 to 29 atomic %, except for the superficial thin portion free of the ceramic particles on the one-side surface of the plate. The electrodes are prepared by mixing a powder of the electro-conducting material with an organic binder under stirring to obtain a slurry or paste, deaerating the slurry or paste to remove entrained air bubbles therefrom, shaping the slurry or paste plate with or without a metal wire net, drying the electrode plate at room temperature and finally firing the plate in a reducing atmosphere.

  • Patent number: 4643957
    Abstract: In a fuel cell comprising a pair of counterposed gas-diffusible electrodes, an electrolyte-retaining, porous matrix provided between and in contact with the electrodes, a fuel chamber for feeding a gaseous fuel to the anode of the pair of the electrodes and an oxidizing agent chamber for feeding a gaseous oxidizing agent to the cathode of the pair of the electrodes, the cell performance is remarkably prevented from lowering by making the electrolyte saturated absorption amount of the cathode smaller than that of the anode, thereby preventing migration of the electrolyte in the electrolyte-retaining matrix.

  • Patent number: 4578112
    Abstract: Disclosed is a catalytic reaction process in which a substance in a liquid reaction system is catalytically reacted with a gaseous substance which is hardly soluble in the liquid reaction system in the presence of a solid catalyst of a non-electroconductive, hydrophobic polymeric material, a part of the surface of which is non-compatible with the liquid reaction system or with the liquid reaction system and a product formed by the catalytic reaction.According to this process, mild reaction conditions can be selected and adopted and separation or recovery of the catalyst can be remarkably facilitated. This catalytic reaction process can be applied to various liquid-gas reactions and can be applied especially advantageously to oxidation and reduction of organic substances and inorganic ions for disposal of waste waters and recovery of valuable substances.

  • Patent number: 4555452
    Abstract: In operating a fuel cell comprising an oxidizing agent chamber subject to supply of an oxidizing agent gas and a fuel chamber subjected to supply of a fuel gas, sintering of noble metal particles such as platinum black as an electrode catalyst can be prevented from sintering by connecting the fuel cell to an outside auxiliary load circuit and controlling the unit cell voltage to not more than 0.80 V at start or discontinuation to operate the fuel cell or during the operation of the fuel cell when an outside load becomes too low due to fluctuation of the outside load. The fuel cell performance can be improved thereby.

  • Patent number: 4350670
    Abstract: A coal or petroleum combustion flue gas containing sulfur oxides and dust is treated by contacting the flue gas with a sulfur dioxide-oxidizing catalyst, thereby converting sulfur dioxide to sulfur trioxide, allowing the resulting sulfur trioxide to react with components of dust, absorbing the trioxide into the dust as a sulfate, and removing the dust. Catalytic oxidation of sulfur dioxide can be efficiently carried out at a low temperature and sulfur oxides can be efficiently removed from the flue gas.
