The second voltage converter 42 is electrically coupled with the electric wire 32.

    [0019] The power distributor 5 distributes the electric power that is input from the feeder line 3 to the load devices 8 described later. In more detail, the power distributor 5 distributes and outputs the electric power depending on the number of the load devices 8. The power distributor 5 is mounted above the front pillar 103. The power distributor 5 is electrically coupled to the voltage converter 4 and the load devices 8 via the electric wires 31, 32, 311, 312, 313, 323, and 324. In the present embodiment, as the power distributor 5, the first power distributor 50, the second power distributor 51, and the third power distributor 52 are disposed. The first power distributor 50 distributes the electric power depending on the number of the voltage converters 4. In the present embodiment, the first power distributor 50 divides the feeder line 3 into the two electric wires 31 and 32. The second power distributor 51 distributes the electric power depending on the number of the load devices 8 to which the illumination power supply is supplied. In the present embodiment, the second power distributor 51 divides the electric wire 31 into the three electric wires 311, 312, and 313. The electric power distributed by the second power distributor 51 is supplied to each of the load devices 8 via the electric wires 311, 312, and 313 that are wired on the back of the ceiling 102. In the present embodiment, the second power distributor 51 distributes the electric power supplied to a room lamp 81, a panel switch 82, and a rear heater 83. The third power distributor 52 distributes the electric power depending on the number of the load devices 8 to which the key-switch power supply is supplied. In the present embodiment, the third power distributor 52 divides the electric wire 32 into the two electric wires 323 and 324.

In the present embodiment, the third power distributor 52 distributes the electric power supplied to the rear heater 83 and an air cleaner 84. The number of the electric wires to branch into is not limited thereto, and is defined depending on the number of the load devices 8 to be coupled as appropriate.

    [0020] A controller 6 has control of the load devices 8 described later. The controller 6 is mounted on the vehicle lower portion 100B. The controller 6 is electrically coupled to the load devices 8 via signal lines 7 which will be described later. The controller 6 outputs control signals to control the load devices 8.

    [0021] The signal lines 7 are wired from the controller 6 up to the ceiling 102 through the inside of the front pillar 103. The signal line 7 is a transmission line that transmits the control signal output from the controller 6 to the load device 8. The signal line 7 electrically couples the controller 6 with the load device 8. In the present embodiment, the signal lines 7 are wired in the same number as the number of the load devices 8 to which the control signal is transmitted. In the present embodiment, four signal lines 71, 72, 73, and 74 are wired.

    [0022] The load devices 8 are electrical components mounted on the ceiling 102. In the present embodiment, as the load devices 8, the room lamp 81, the panel switch 82, the rear heater 83, and the air cleaner 84 are disposed. The room lamp 81 is fitted to an overhead console 10 which will be described later. The room lamp 81 is a lighting fixture including an LED lighting fixture, for example.
    The room lamp 81 is turned on/off based on switch operation of the panel switch 82 described later. The room lamp 81 is driven based on the electric power supplied from the battery 2 via the electric wire 311, and the control signal input from the controller 6 via the signal line 71. The panel switch 82 is fitted to the overhead console 10 described later. The panel switch 82 is arranged with switches for performing various operations of the load devices 8. The panel switch 82 outputs a control signal via the signal line 7 not depicted to the load device 8 that is the subject of the switch operation. The panel switch 82 is driven based on the electric power supplied from the battery 2 via the electric wire 312, and the control signal input from the controller 6 via the signal line 72. The rear heater 83 is attached at the center of the vehicle interior 101 in the advancing direction and at the center of the ceiling 102 in the vehicle width direction. The rear heater 83 is a heater device for rear seats. The rear heater 83 is driven based on the electric power supplied from the battery 2 via the electric wires 313 and 323, and the control signal input from the controller 6 via the signal line 73. The air cleaner 84 is attached at the center of the vehicle interior 101 in the advancing direction and on the left side of the ceiling 102 in the vehicle width direction. The air cleaner 84 cleanses the air in the vehicle interior 101. The air cleaner 84 is driven based on the electric power supplied from the battery 2 via the electric wire 324, and the control signal input from the controller 6 via the signal line 74.

    [0023] The overhead console 10 is fitted to the ceiling 102. The overhead console 10 has a relay connector (not depicted) arranged on the outer circumference. This relay connector electrically couples the feeder line, the electric wires, and the signal lines wired inside the overhead console 10 with the externally wired feeder line, the electric wires, and the signal lines. In more detail, the feeder line 3 is made up of, in the relay connector, a portion wired outside of the overhead console 10 and a portion wired inside of the overhead console 10 being electrically coupled, for example. In such an overhead console 10, a part of the feeder line 3, the electric wires 31, 32, 311, and 312, a part of the electric wires 313, 323, and 324, the voltage converter 4, the power distributor 5, the room lamp 81, and the panel switch 82 are attached. The overhead console 10 is attached on the front side of the ceiling 102 in the advancing direction and at the center in the vehicle width direction.

    [0024] Next, a power supply method and operation in the power supply system 1 will be described.

    [0025] The electric power output from the battery 2 is supplied to the overhead console 10 fitted to the ceiling 102 at an as-is voltage, via the feeder line 3 through the inside of the front pillar 103. Then, the electric power supplied to the overhead console 10 is distributed by the first power distributor 50 and is supplied to the voltage converter 4. In more detail, the first power distributor 50 divides the feeder line 3 into the electric wires 31 and 32, and distributes the electric power that is supplied to the first voltage converter 41 and the second voltage converter 42. Then, the electric power supplied to the voltage converter 4 is lowered to, for example, 12 V by the voltage converter 4 in accordance with the voltage of the load device 8. In more detail, a part of the electric power supplied to the voltage converter 4 is input to the first voltage converter 41 via the electric wire 31 and is converted into an illumination-power supply voltage. Furthermore, the remain of the electric power supplied to the voltage converter 4 is input to the second voltage converter 42 via the electric wire 32 and is converted into a key-switch power supply voltage. Then, the electric power for which the voltage has been lowered by the voltage converter 4 is supplied to the second power distributor 51 and the third power distributor 52. The electric power supplied to the second power distributor 51 and the third power distributor 52 is distributed by the second power distributor 51 and the third power distributor 52 and is output to the load devices 8. In more detail, the second power distributor 51 divides the electric wire 31 into the electric wires 311, 312, and 313, and distributes the electric power that is supplied to the room lamp 81, the panel switch 82, and the rear heater 83. Furthermore, the third power distributor 52 divides the electric wire 32 into the electric wires 323 and 324, and distributes the electric power that is supplied to the rear heater 83 and the air cleaner 84.

    [0026] The control signals output from the controller 6 are output to the load devices 8 from the controller 6, via the signal lines 71, 72, 73, and 74 through the inside of the front pillar 103.

    [0027] Thus, the load devices 8 are driven based on the supplied electric power and the input control signals.

    [0028] According to the power supply system 1 in the foregoing, the electric power output from the battery 2 can be supplied to the overhead console 10 via a single feeder line 3 wired to the ceiling 102 through the inside of the front pillar 103. In the power supply system 1, the electric power can be distributed by the power distributor 5 in the overhead console 10 and be output to the load devices 8. As a result, the power supply system 1 only needs to wire a single feeder line 3 inside the front pillar 103, and the routing of the feeder line 3 in the front pillar 103 can be facilitated. Thus, the power supply system 1 can simplify the wiring of the feeder line 3, improve the workability of the wiring work, and reduce the time and effort needed for the wiring work.

    [0029] According to this power supply system 1, fitted to the overhead console 10 are a part of the feeder line 3, the electric wires 31, 32, 311, and 312, a part of the electric wires 313, 323, and 324, the voltage converter 4, the power distributor 5, the room lamp 81, and the panel switch 82. That is, a part of the feeder line 3, the electric wires 31, 32, 311, and 312, a part of the electric wires 313, 323, and 324, the voltage converter 4, the power distributor 5, the room lamp 81, and the panel switch 82, which are arranged on the front side of the ceiling 102 in the advancing direction and at the center in the vehicle width direction, are assembled to and integrated with the overhead console 10. Thus, because the power supply system 1 can facilitate the routing of various devices and apparatuses mounted on the front side of the ceiling 102 in the advancing direction and at the center in the vehicle width direction and improve the workability of assembly work, the time and effort needed for the assembly work can be reduced. Furthermore, the electric wires 31, 32, 311, and 312 that electrically couple between the voltage converter 4 and the power distributor 5 and between the power distributor 5 and the room lamp 81 and the panel switch 82 can be wired in the overhead console 10. Thus, the power supply system 1 can simplify the wiring of the electric wires 31, 32, 311, and 312, improve the workability of the wiring work, and reduce the time and effort needed for the wiring work.

    [0030] According to this power supply system 1, the feeder line 3 is wired inside the front pillar 103. This makes it possible to shorten the length of the feeder line 3 that supplies the electric power to the overhead console 10 that is arranged on the front side of the ceiling 102 in the advancing direction and at the center in the vehicle width direction. Furthermore, because the feeder line 3 branches in the overhead console 10, the number of the electric wires wired to the ceiling 102 including the feeder line 3 can be reduced. Thus, the power supply system 1 can simplify the wiring of the feeder line 3, improve the workability of the wiring work, and reduce the time and effort needed for the wiring work.

    [0031] The above-described power supply system 1 according to the embodiment of the present invention is not limited to the above-described embodiment, and various modifications can be made within the scope stated in claims.

    [0032] The feeder line 3 in the foregoing has been described to be wired through the inside of the front pillar 103, but the embodiment is not limited thereto and the feeder line 3 may be wired to the ceiling 102 through the center pillar 104 and the rear pillar 105. Furthermore, the overhead console 10 has been described to be attached on the front side of the ceiling 102 in the advancing direction and at the center in the vehicle width direction, but the embodiment is not limited to this location.

    [0033] The feeder line 3 in the foregoing has been described to be made up of a single electric wire, but the number of electric wires is not limited thereto, and it only needs to be smaller than the number of the load devices 8, that is, the number of the electric wires distributed in the power distributor 5. Specifically, when eight load devices 8 are arranged, two feeder lines 3 may be distributed to four electric wires each in the power distributor 5, for example. In this case also, as compared with a case where the power distributor 5 is disposed on the vehicle lower portion 100B and where eight feeder lines 3 are wired through the inside of the front pillar 103, it is possible to reduce the number of the feeder lines 3 wired through the inside of the front pillar 103.

    [0034] The voltage converter 4 in the foregoing has been described to be accommodated in the overhead console 10, but the embodiment is not limited thereto and the voltage converter 4 may be disposed on the vehicle lower portion 100B, for example. In this case, the voltage converter 4 is electrically coupled to the battery 2. The electric power for which the voltage is lowered by the voltage converter 4 is supplied to the power distributor 5 via a single feeder line 3 wired to the ceiling 102 through the inside of the front pillar 103. In this case also, as with the above-described embodiment of the present invention, the electric power can be distributed by the power distributor 5 in the overhead console 10 and be output to the load devices 8.

    [0035] The load devices 8 in the foregoing have been exemplified as the room lamp 81, the panel switch 82, the rear heater 83, and the air cleaner 84, but the embodiment is not limited thereto, and they only need to be electrical components arranged on the ceiling 102 or on the vehicle upper portion 100A near the ceiling 102.

    [0036] The controller 6 in the foregoing has been described as to be mounted on the vehicle lower portion 100B, but the embodiment is not limited thereto and the controller 6 may be accommodated in the overhead console 10.

    [0037] The voltage converter 4 and the power distributor 5 in the foregoing have been described as independent devices and apparatuses, but they may be implemented on a single power supply device including an intelligent power switch (IPS), for example.

    [0038] The voltage converter 4 in the foregoing has been described as to convert the voltage into the illumination-power supply voltage by the first voltage converter 41 and to convert it into the key-switch power supply voltage by the second voltage converter 42, but the embodiment is not limited thereto and the voltage converter 4 may further convert it into an accessory-power supply voltage and a constant-power supply voltage, for example. The accessory-power supply supplies the electric power when the key switch is at an accessory position. The constant power supply supplies the electric power even when the key switch is Off.
