Abstract: An axial-air-gap rotating electric machine with a stator bobbin is provided. The bobbin renders the respective turn counts of windings in the machine the same and minimizes the lengths of connecting wires between continuous windings regardless of the continuous turn count, the direction in which each winding is wound, and whether the number of stages is odd or even. The bobbin, which has a tubular shape that substantially matches the exterior shape of a core, is provided with flanges that extend outwards from near the respective openings in the bobbin. One of the flanges has two first notches, and the other flange has a second notch. The axial positions of the starting and finishing ends of coils on adjacent stator cores are the same, and the flanges containing the notches through which the ends of the coils are run are on the same side with respect to the openings.

Abstract: [Summary] [Objective] Estimation accuracy in a battery status estimating device which estimates a charge status of a secondary battery should be improved further more. [Means for Solution] In an SOC estimation by integration of a charge-and-discharge current, influence of a sensor error cannot be disregarded, and the influence of such an error is accumulated as time passes. On the other hand, in an SOC estimation based on measured values of a battery voltage and a battery temperature, estimation accuracy largely depends on a load-generation pattern. Then, in accordance with the present invention, by mixing both, while one of them is reset based on a reliability in accordance with an operation situation and/or an input current value which will be the premise for an SOC estimate calculation in a battery model is set up based on the reliability, it becomes possible to compute an SOC estimate in high accuracy as much as possible in accordance with the operation situation.
