  • Patent number: 11223309
    Abstract: In a motor control device that controls a sensorless-type motor, a controller estimates an initial magnetic pole position of a rotor of a motor by an inductive sensing scheme while sequentially setting a plurality of energization angles. At each of the set energization angles, the controller converts peak values of currents flowing through a plurality of phases of a stator winding into a first current component having an electrical angle that is equal to a corresponding one of the set energization angles and a second current component that is different in electrical angle by 90 degrees from the first current component, to correct the first current component based on the second current component. The controller estimates the initial magnetic pole position of the rotor based on the corrected first current component that is obtained at each of the set energization angles.

  • Patent number: 11218101
    Abstract: In a motor control device in one embodiment, an initial position estimation unit estimates an initial position of a magnetic pole of a rotor of a motor in an inductive sensing scheme. At each of energization angles, the initial position estimation unit multiplies a ?-axis current component I? corresponding to a peak value of a current flowing through a stator winding by each of a cosine value and a sine value of a correction angle obtained by correcting each of the energization angles. The initial position estimation unit estimates the initial position of the magnetic pole of the rotor based on a ratio between an integrated value of a multiplication result about the cosine value and an integrated value of a multiplication result about the sine value.

  • Patent number: 11045922
    Abstract: A first inspection step nondestructively inspects a surface side state of a treatment target to be subjected to shot processing of shooting shot media at the treatment target and evaluates that the treatment target is failed when an inspection result deviates from a first allowable range predetermined. A condition setting step sets a shot processing condition in response to the inspection result of the first inspection step for the treatment target evaluated as not failed in the first inspection step. A shot processing step performs shot processing of shooting shot media at the treatment target evaluated as not failed in the first inspection step in the shot processing condition set in the condition setting step. A second inspection step after the shot processing step nondestructively inspects a surface side state of the treatment target.

  • Publication number: 20210190678
    Abstract: One point on a surface of a qualified article is measured in advance by a color sensor without contact, and a qualification reference value is set based on an output value thereof. Thereafter, one point on a surface of an inspection target of same design specifications as the qualified article is measured by the color sensor without contact, and an output value thereof is compared with the qualification reference value, and qualification/failure is judged. Because qualification/failure can be carried out without contacting an inspection target in this way, application to a high-speed production line is possible.
