  8. Holomorphic Embedded Load Flow for Autonomous Spacecraft Power Systems

    SBC: Gridquant Technologies, LCC            Topic: S303

    The Holomorphic Embedding Load Flow Method (HELM) is a breakthrough that brings significant advances to the field of power systems. It provides a non-iterative procedure to compute, with mathematically proven guarantees even near voltage collapse, the correct operative power flow solution, to the desired accuracy. Unlike iterative methods, which are inherently prone to non-deterministic convergen ...

  9. Ultra High Energy Solid-State Batteries for Next Generation Space Power

    SBC: Soild Power, Inc.            Topic: Z102

    The use of lithium (Li) metal as an anode material has emerged as one highly attractive option for achieving high specific energy due to lithium having the highest capacity (3876 mAh g-1) of all potential anode materials. However, the reliable use of these exceptionally high capacity anodes in a commercial cell has not been achieved due to safety and reliability concerns resulting from thermal ru ...

  10. Low Cost, Low Profile Steerable SATCOM Antenna

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: A201

    The small size of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) platforms along with the need to reduce drag to increase flight time creates a need for low-profile antennas. The oldest solution, a mechanically steered parabolic reflector, does not provide a low profile. The modern electronically steered phased array is an alternative that does provide a low-profile antenna solution, but the cost of these antenn ...
