Abstract:This project will develop high-voltage, high-performance Solid-State Fault Current Controller (SSFCC) technology, needed to minimize recovery time and vulnerability of the electricity network in the event of a large-scale natural disaster. The SSFCC technology, which utilizes Silicon Carbide (SiC)… more
Abstract:The terminal objective of this Phase II work will be the development of compact, fully integrated, high-temperature (250 degrees C), high-power-density SiC-based motor drives for avionics applications. The developed multi-chip power module (MCPM) will target an advanced motor drive application such… more
Abstract:Fast and accurate fault protection and isolation has always been an important feature of electric networks; in particular, this includes high reliability and robust networks such as the electric distribution systems of US Navy warships. This feature, however, is now critical for the development of… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): There are over 40 lysosomal storage disorders, and most of these diseases affect adversely the central nervous system (CNS). The mainstay of treatment is enzyme replacement therapy (ERT). However, ERT is not effective f

There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
