What is disclosed is an electrode material including a sintered body containing a heat resistant element and Cr and being infiltrated with a highly conductive material. A powder mixture of a heat resistant element powder and a Cr powder is subjected to a provisional sintering in advance, thereby causing solid phase diffusion of the heat resistant element and Cr. After a Mo-Cr solid solution obtained by the provisional sintering is pulverized, the pulverized Mo-Cr solid solution powder is molded and sintered. A sintered body obtained by sintering is subjected to a HIP treatment. The highly conductive metal is disposed on the sintered body after the HIP treatment, and infiltrated into the sintered body by heating at a predetermined temperature. By conducting the HIP treatment, the withstand voltage capability and current-interrupting capability of the electrode material are improved.

When it is not possible for a power generation device to operate coupled to an electric power system, an autonomous operation of connection and disconnection of a load of the power generation device is performed along an efficiency-characteristics curve within a speed range from a rated speed to a maximum speed in the efficiency-characteristics curve of an energy source. During the autonomous operation, an aperture command is outputted to an inlet valve of a water turbine and a first converter is operated in a converter mode when an operation preparation command is outputted by a control unit, a second converter is operated in an inverter mode when a voltage is established by of a DC linkage unit, and the load is connected when the operation preparation is completed.

A elevator car movement control apparatus is provided to move an elevator car in a light load direction judged without using a load or torque sensor at the time of power outage. A control section of an inverter 80 supplying a voltage to an elevator drive motor 50 includes a speed control system arranged to determine a torque command value from a deviation between a speed command and a sensed speed and to control the speed of motor 50 in accordance with the torque command value, including a zero speed region, controls the speed control system in a zero speed control in an open state of a brake at the time of operation by an emergency power source due to outage of an input power source, calculates a torque command value in the speed control system at that time, to detect the light load direction of the motor decided by the weight balance between a counterweight 53 and the car 54 among the rotational directions sensed by an encoder 56, and controls the car 54 to move in the light load direction with a speed command value corresponding to the detected light load direction.

Current control section 2 performs PI control based on deviation between d-axis command current Id_cmd and d-axis detected current Id_det and deviation between q-axis command current Iq_cmd and q-axis detected current Iq_det. Neutral point potential control section 4 calculates corrected command voltage V_cmd by addition of neutral point control compensation quantity V_cmp to three-phase command voltage V_cmd. Limiter LMT3 outputs limiter processed command voltage V_cmd by liming the output of corrected command voltage V_cmd. Three-phase to two-phase converter 5 outputs feedback quantities Vd_back, Vq_back by three-phase to two-phase conversion of the limiter processed command voltage V_cmd. Current control section 2 performs integral control in accordance with quantities resulting from addition of the feedback quantities Vd_back, Vq_back to the deviations. Accordingly, the three-phase neutral point clamed power conversion apparatus performing the PWM control suppresses interference between the current control and the neutral point potential control.

A plurality of carrier patterns, which are a carrier pattern A and a carrier pattern B, are formed by dividing triangular wave carrier signals every 1/2 cycle at a timing when the triangular wave carrier signals cross each other. A carrier pattern by which a neutral point potential is balanced is selected from the carrier pattern A and the carrier pattern B on the basis of an upper arm DC voltage detection value Ea, a lower arm DC voltage detection value Eb and an output current detection value Iout. By performing a PWM operation that compares the selected carrier pattern with an output voltage command Vref, an ON/OFF signal for the each switch is generated. With these operations, in a single-phase NPC inverter, a neutral point potential of a DC voltage is controlled without changing a switching timing.

The tap positions of a first and a second tap switching transformers are respectively set as a large output position and as a small output position until all of the pantographs of an electric vehicle pass through an inlet-side air section. After all of the pantographs pass through the inlet-side air section before a front-side pantograph of the electric vehicle reaches the outlet-side air section, the second tap switching transformer tap position is gradually switched in an output increasing direction while the first tap switching transformer tap position is switched in an output decreasing direction, and the tap positions of the first and the second tap switching transformers are respectively set as the small output position and as the large output position. Thus, in the central section of power supply equipment for an AC electric vehicle, power supply phase-switching is performed without a momentary power failure.

A process for producing an electrode material by infiltrating a highly conductive metal such as Cu into a porous object containing heat-resistant elements. Before an infiltration step in which the highly conductive metal is infiltrated, a HIP treatment is given to a powder containing the heat-resistant elements (or to a molded object obtained by molding a powder containing the heat-resistant elements). The composition is controlled so that the HIP treatment yields a porous object which has a degree of filling of 70% or higher, more preferably 75% or higher. The highly conductive metal is infiltrated into the porous object having the controlled composition.
