  • Patent number: 6781802
    Abstract: A controlling device of a compressor is provided. A noise filter is arranged at an input of the inverter circuit that converts the commercial frequency to a driving frequency to control a motor driving a compressor mechanism, for suppressing a common mode noise of the commercial power source and the inverter circuit, and is connected to a ground through a metal frame used for receiving a compressor main body. The noise filter comprises coils connected between first capacitors and second capacitors that are connected in series between the AC power lines, and further comprises a clamper connected between nodes of the second capacitors and the metal frame for clamping a voltage and a third capacitor connected to the clamper in parallel. even though the new refrigerant, such as R410A, and the three-phase AC power source are used, the leakage current can be reduced by a simple structure and the increase of the noise terminal voltage can be also suppressed.

  • Patent number: 6285572
    Abstract: A method whereby a plurality of inverters for converting DC power outputted from a DC power supply, such as solar cells or fuel cells, to AC power are operated efficiently without being biased to particular inverters. The number of inverters to be run is determined in correspondence with at least one output value of the DC output or AC output, and the determined number of inverters are selected and made to run from among the plurality of inverters on the basis of a predetermined rule. In addition, a parallel-connected system is disclosed for enabling efficient and appropriate parallel-in operation by the use of inverters, with one of the inverters controlling the remaining inverters and effecting system interconnection protection.

  • Patent number: 5627737
    Abstract: A power inverter for use in the system interconnection of a direct-current supply with a commercial alternating-current supply includes an inverter circuit and a filter circuit. Feedback signals affecting the frequency of an output to be produced by the inverter circuit are taken from the filter circuit having frequency response characteristics such that the phase angle is reduced to 0.degree. at three frequencies consisting of a higher frequency, lower frequency and commercial frequency, the last of which lies halfway between the first and second. Under the normal condition, the frequency of the output produced by the inverter circuit is equal to the commercial frequency. In the event of a power failure or power cut in the commercial alternating-current supply system, deviation from the commercial frequency is caused by the characteristics of the filter circuit.

  • Patent number: 5321235
    Abstract: A power source apparatus for microwave oven includes a half-bridge converter including a series connection of switching elements, a series connection of resonance capacitors, and a high frequency transformer having a primary winding and a secondary winding, and the half-bridge converter is driven by an output of a diode bridge which receives a commercial power source of 200 V. A current transformer detects a current of the primary winding. A control circuit compares a voltage equal to an average value of the current detected by the current transformer and a voltage set by a microcomputer, and controls the switching elements at a frequency in proportion to a magnitude of a difference of the both voltages, whereby a high frequency high voltage is induced on the secondary winding and applied to a voltage doubler rectifying circuit, and then a direct current high voltage is applied to a magnetron.

  • Patent number: 4626514
    Abstract: Dental materials using calcium phosphate glass-ceramics and having the color tone with high approximation to that of natural teeth. In those dental materials, calcium phosphate composite, nickel oxide and one or more other type of compounds selected from oxides of iron, manganese, cerium, titanium and tungsten, are contained as coloring component. Also, if necessary, Al.sub.2 O.sub.3 and/or SiO.sub.2 is contained as a color assisting agent in that composite. The calcium phosphate glass-ceramic according to this invention consists of the same components as that of natural teeth. Besides, it is possible to adjust the color tone delicately to match with the color tone of each individual`s teeth. Moreover, the coloring components are incorporated in crystals of calcium phosphate. Consequently, they cause no elution during use and are therefore ideal as dental material.
