Title: Recovery Act - Smart Low-Cost Controller Chip for Grid-Friendly Household Appliances

Abstract:

Electrical grids are overloaded on a daily basis due to peaking electrical demand. In order to satisfy this peak demand utilities fire-up expensive and polluting gas and oil stand-by generators. Billions of dollars are spent and wasted each year on this problem due to mismatched electrical average supply and peak demand during the day. Our semiconductor chip developed during Phase II will be incorporated into home electrical appliances (washing machines, dryers, pool equipment, etc.) This chip automatically signals the appliance to shut down or to reduce its electrical usage temporarily while the local grid is overloaded in order to help balance electrical supply and demand. This also reduces the consumer
