  • Publication number: 20220239108
    Abstract: A power management system includes a CEMS server that outputs a DR request to a plurality of power adjustment resources such that balancing is achieved every prescribed time period. The plurality of power adjustment resources include: a power-storage-type DER that stores the supply power in an energy form of at least one of electricity, heat and gas fuel; and a consumption-type DER that consumes the supply power by at least one of air conditioning and lighting. In a case where it is expected in the middle of the prescribed time period that the actual amount of power exceeds the planned amount of power at the end of the prescribed time period, the CEMS server outputs, to the power-storage-type DER more preferentially than to the consumption-type DER, the DR request for decreasing the actual amount of power in comparison with before expectation.

  • Patent number: 11372362
    Abstract: An image forming apparatus includes a developing roller, a photo-interrupter, and a separation mechanism. The developing roller is movable between a contact position and a separated position. The photo-interrupter includes a light emitting element and a light receiving element. The separation mechanism includes a cam configured to move the developing roller between the contact position and the separated position. The cam includes a phase detection wall extending in a circumference direction. The phase detection wall has a first slit and a second slit. The first slit allows the light emitted from the light emitting element to pass therethrough when the developing roller is at the separated position. The second slit allows the light emitted from the light emitting element to pass therethrough when the developing roller is at the contact position. A size of the first slit in the circumferential direction is different from that of the second slit.

  • Publication number: 20210126530
    Abstract: A circuit device includes a pulse signal output circuit and a driving circuit. The pulse signal output circuit, when a detection voltage has decreased below a reference voltage, changes a pulse signal to an active level at which a switching element is turned on. The pulse signal output circuit, after the detection voltage has decreased below the reference voltage, performs monitoring as to whether or not the detection voltage has exceeded the reference voltage, and upon detecting that the detection voltage has exceeded the reference voltage, changes the pulse signal to an inactive level at which the switching element is turned off. The driving circuit outputs a driving signal based on the pulse signal to the switching element.
