|20130111874||Pulse Rocket Motor - A pulse rocket motor has a hollow cylinder-like first grain situated in a rear section of a pressure vessel; a first igniter for igniting the first grain; a hollow cylinder-like second grain situated in a front section of the pressure vessel; a second igniter for igniting the second grain; and a dividing sheet member that covers the second grain within the pressure vessel. The dividing sheet member includes a dividing sheet expanding at least along the inner circumferential surface of the second grain and holders formed integrally with the dividing sheet at both ends of the dividing sheet by cure adhesion and attached to the pressure vessel. The dividing sheet includes a brittle portion that expands along the inner circumferential surface of the second grain through a rear end face of the second grain and is more brittle than other portions.||05-09-2013|
|20120306462||Electricity Generation Device and Permanent-Magnet Electric Generator - An electricity generation device includes a permanent-magnet electric generator with three or more phase windings each having an output terminal and connected to a neutral point, and bidirectional semiconductor switching circuits capable of interrupting connections between the respective phase windings and the neutral point. Each switching circuit allows current to flow in both directions. A gate signal generation circuit outputs to one of the switching circuits during a period including the time at which the AC voltage excited in the corresponding phase winding turns from positive to negative and during a period including the time at which the AC voltage excited in the corresponding phase winding turns from negative to positive. A startup gate signal output circuit outputs a startup gate signal to all of the bidirectional semiconductor switching circuits when the permanent-magnet electric generator is to be started.||12-06-2012|
|20120256577||Motor Control Apparatus and Method - When it is determined that the number of times that motor rotation-indicative quantity has been detected has exceeded a measurement interval, a feedback speed value is calculated from a motor rotation-indicative quantity detected immediately before, a motor rotation-indicative quantity detected immediately before the last time a measurement interval determination means determined that the number of times had exceeded the measurement interval, and time that has elapsed since the last time the measurement interval determination means determined that the number of times had exceeded the measurement interval, and the measurement interval having a length calculated from a greater one between the calculated feedback speed value and a speed command value is set for the measurement interval determination means to refer to.||10-11-2012|
|20120256572||Brushless Motor and Control Method Therefor - When a fault of any one of phases is detected by a fault detector, each of the phases is checked for fault on the basis of fault detection information input to a controller, and the phases of normal phase currents which have been judged to be not faulty by a faulty phase discriminator are varied such that a current vector obtained by decomposing the normal phase currents into orthogonal X- and Y-axis components to derive resultant currents and then combining the resultant currents follows a nearly circular locus.||10-11-2012|
