DEVICE AND METHODS OF MUTLIPLE SPOT WELDING FOR AUTOMOTIVE APPLICATIONS USING VAPORIZING FOIL ACTUATOR WELDING

Abstract

A multiple spot vaporizing foil actuator weld (VFAW) system includes a target sheet layer secured relative to a stabilizing component, such that standoff components may be arranged sandwichably between the target and a flier sheet layer. An electrically insulating layer separates the flier from a vaporizing component sheet layer, which may comprise at least two vaporizing subsections configured to have less conductive material than at least three dividing subsections that separate the vaporizing subsections. The geometry and/or other features of the vaporizing subsections may be varied to optimize the vaporization. A second electrically insulated stabilizing component may sandwichably secure the above components between the first stabilizing component in order to control the forces generated in the VFAW process. The method involves loading the vaporizable component sheet layer with electrons via applied voltage such that the vaporizing subsections sublimate. The rapidly expanding gas particles accelerate the flier, completing the weld.

Abstract

A power supply can supply power to a starter for starting an engine. An inverter is connected to a power generator that generates power by being driven by the engine. The inverter has a first conversion circuit for converting AC generated by the power generator to DC and a second conversion circuit for converting the DC to AC and supplying the AC to a load. An outlet outputs the AC from the inverter to the load. A detection circuit detects the load connected to the outlet. A control circuit stops or starts the engine in accordance with the load detected by the detection circuit. The control circuit causes the second conversion circuit to generate the AC by applying a DC voltage from the power supply to the second conversion circuit in a period during which the engine stops. The control circuit is configured to determine, on the basis of whether the detection circuit detects the load or not, whether continuing stopping of the engine or starting the engine.

Abstract

An ECU of a fuel cell system supplies cathode gas by rotating an air pump at a low-load rotational speed and performs a low-load power generation in a fuel cell stack, while a moving body is traveling. When the fuel cell stack generates power while the moving body is stopped, the ECU increases the supply amount of the cathode gas by rotating the air pump at a during-stoppage-of-traveling rotational speed which is greater than the low-load rotational speed.
