Abstract:

Mainstream is ideally suited for this proposed effort with more than 20 years of experience in the development of advanced environmental control units and more than 15 years of experience in the development of JP-8-fueled generators. This proposal contains a detailed analysis of power generation and cooling alternatives, as well as the identification of the optimum approach if the cooling load is 10 kW and the electrical power load is either 5 kWe as requested or higher such as 20 kWe. The proposal discusses how the desired quantity of electrical power affects the selection. Having already identified the optimum system in the proposal, the goal of the Phase I effort is to experimentally demonstrate that this system will exceed the noise and weight criterion, while dramatically reducing fuel consumption. Since Mainstream has been pursuing this technology on internally funded research and development , the Phase I effort will provide a design of the entire co-generation system, as well as experimental performance data to verify the system design and confirm the performance claims. This will dramatically reduce the risk in Phase II and will allow Phase II to focus on extensive field tests, life-testing, and re-design as needed after field testing.
