Title: Adaptive Hybrid Power System
Agency: DOD
Contract: M67854-11-C-6520
Award Amount: $69,793.00


HDM Systems Corporation, with partners ZeroBase Energy and Raytheon, propose system solutions that address the shortcomings of the DREAMS system referenced in topic N103-194: inefficiency, weight, bulkiness, and high cost. The team has worked on various aspects of a previous HMMWV towable 5-10KW renewable"nano grid"system. HDM"s team proposes the Adaptive Hybrid Power System (AHPS), which employs an innovative methodology to track and optimize real-time renewable energy utilization. HDM also proposes component level innovations to achieve high system efficiency for power conversion. This new approach implements next generation semiconductors in power electronics designs, thus greatly improving thermal performance. In addition the new approach leverages lithium-ion storage that will be monitored by a precision power management system which accurately predicts the SOC (state-of-charge) and SOH (state-of-health). The system packaging employs lightweight solar panels, in concert with a universal racking system, and an overall design aimed at allowing lithium-ion to ship with the system as a HAZMAT hardened container. The AHPS simplifies deployment, minimizes system size and weight, and provides optimal power density to the Warfighter.
