  • Patent number: 9586488
    Abstract: A first ECU estimates whether the operation of a second actuator has been started, based on the variation of the hydraulic pressure with respect to the flow rate of hydraulic fluid outputted from a first actuator. Even in a case where the operation information of the second actuator is not received, the first ECU sets the control mode to a simultaneous operation mode, when it is estimated that the operation of the second actuator has been started. In the simultaneous operation mode, a controlled parameter of linear control valves on assumption that the second actuator is operating is set up, and a stop instruction of regenerative braking is transmitted to a hybrid ECU.

  • Patent number: 9366354
    Abstract: A normally closed solenoid valve includes a valve element arranged to be seatable on and unseatable from a valve seat. A movable core is movable with the valve element. A first spring biases the valve element and the movable core toward the valve seat. A coil and a stator core generate an electromagnetic force resistive to a load of the first spring for the movable core. A second spring applies a load smaller than and resistive to the load of the first spring to the valve element and the movable core. The valve further includes a load adjusting mechanism for adjusting the load of the first spring, and a stroke adjusting mechanism for adjusting an unseating stroke of the valve element from the valve seat.
