  • Patent number: 11136925
    Abstract: A control device for an engine is provided, which includes variable intake and exhaust valve operating mechanisms, a supercharger provided to an intake passage and configured to boost intake air introduced into a cylinder, and a controller. The controller drives the supercharger when the engine operates in a boosted range. The controller controls the variable intake and exhaust valve operating mechanisms so that a valve overlap period during which intake and exhaust valves open simultaneously is formed, when the engine operates in a low-speed boosted range of the boosted range where the engine speed is less than a reference speed. The controller controls the variable exhaust valve operating mechanism so that the open timing of the exhaust valve is more advanced when the engine operates in a high-speed boosted range of the boosted range where the engine speed is greater than or equal to the reference speed.

A discharge curve is obtained when the battery that is fully charged is discharged with a constant current until a battery voltage drops to 1.0 V. The battery voltage at a point on the discharge curve where x (%) of a total discharge capacity has been discharged from the battery since start of discharge is represented by Vx (V). The discharge curve satisfies V10?V70?0.08, has a step in the range of 70?x?90, and shows that a size of the step represented by V70?V90 is 0.04 or more and 0.15 or less.

  • Patent number: 11111871
    Abstract: Provided is an ignition control section and an injection control section. When partial compression ignition combustion is carried out, the ignition control section causes an ignition plug to carry out: main ignition in which a spark is generated in a late period of a compression stroke or an initial period of an expansion stroke to initiate SI combustion; and preceding ignition in which the spark is generated at earlier timing than the main ignition. Also, when the partial compression ignition combustion is carried out, the injection control section causes an injector to inject fuel at such timing that the fuel exists in a cylinder at an earlier time point than the preceding ignition. Ignition timing of the preceding ignition is set to be more advanced when an in-cylinder temperature specified by an in-cylinder temperature specification section is high than when the in-cylinder temperature is low.

  • Publication number: 20190299874
    Abstract: The sound volume control device is connected to output units symmetrically arranged with respect to left and right seats of a vehicle. The sound volume control device estimates a common frequency to be controlled when sounds outputted from each of the output units are listened to at each of listening positions of the left and right seats, and corrects a level at the common frequency based on the common frequency. Preferably, a frequency at which the direct sounds of the sounds outputted by each of the output units become in-phase at the listening positions of the left and right seats is determined as the common frequency based on the distances from each of the output units to one of the listening positions of the left and right seats.
