REMOTE CALIBRATION OF ELECTRICAL MEASUREMENTS IN POWER SYSTEMS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Mahmood m adibi
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
Research in remote calibration of electrical measurements and remote identification of defective instruments is proposed in response to the electric power industry's need for an efficient and less costly methodology. power system reliability and economy of operation requires accurate measurements of… More

STANDING PHASE ANGLE REDUCTION IN POWER SYSTEMS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1992 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Mahmood M. Adibi
Award Amount: $49,940.00
Abstract:
The presence of excessive standing phase angle difference across open circuit breakers which connect transmission stations cause significant delays in power system restoration. during the initial phases of restoration when the power system is primarily under manual control, these phase angle… More

RUBBER REINFORCING CHAR (METBLACK CARBON BLACK)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1994 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Carleen Wischt
Award Amount: $51,502.00
Abstract:
Scrap tire distillation is the most economical way to recover the energy in scrap tires, particularly if one can reuse the solid char distillation product. the char has properties similar to carbon black which makes up about 25 percent of the rubber formula. the rubber industry wants to recover… More

SBIR Phase I: Optimizing Generator Reactive Power Resources

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2001 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Mahmood Adibi
Award Amount: $99,546.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project addresses a major ancillary service, that of optimizing generator reactive power in support of system voltage profile. The rated reactive power of generators are based on their field, stator, and end-iron heating limits. Their operating… More

SBIR Phase I: Power System Restoration - The Graceful Degradation Phase

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Mahmood M. Adibi, Mr
Award Amount: $99,998.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project investigates controlled islanding of power system during major disturbances. Most power system faults occur on high- and extra high-voltage transmission lines due to their vulnerability arising from their exposed lengths. The majority of… More
