  2. Very Low Head Modular Turbine with Advanced Hydrodynamics and Power Takeoff

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: 15

    According to a 2014 study commissioned by the Department of Energy, hydropower from more than 3 million untapped streams in the United States could potentially generate 65 gigawatts of electricity and help to reduce greenhouse emissions and pollution. However, the development of hydropower has been limited by several obstacles, as described by the United States Geological Survey: most of the prime ...

  3. Improving Efficiency and Reducing Costs for the Supercritical C02 Design Process

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: 18

    Supercritical CO2 cycles have the potential to significantly improve efficiency and reduce emissions in power generation. However, the unique fluid dynamic properties of supercritical CO2 that enable these higher efficiencies also complicate the design and layout of the system, particularly its turbomachinery components. The problem stems specifically from the highly non-linear properties of CO2, ...

  4. LOW-COST DISTRIBUTED TEMPERATURE SENSOR USING ELECTRICAL TDR

    SBC: Transcend Engineering and Technology, LLC            Topic: 18a

    Letters from leading researchers of subsurface hydrobiogeochemical processes, including Department of Energy researchers, confirm the need for low-cost, rugged distributed temperature sensing. Temperature and thermal gradients are critical drivers and state variables in many important subsurface hydrobiogeochemical processes, as well as indicators of hydrologic phenomena. In addition to helping un ...

  7. In-Service Fatigue Loads Data Gathering

    SBC: MicroStrain, Inc.            Topic: AF112213

    ABSTRACT: Structural monitoring of the landing gear of fixed and rotary wing aircraft is of critical importance to the Air Force. These structures are subjected to repeated large dynamic loads that are highly variable in nature. In order to track these structures"fatigue over time, the magnitude and direction of load events and the number of fatigue cycles must be recorded. Smart, embedded mult ...

  8. High Flow Gain Inlet Cover Treatment for Inducer Cavitation Suppression

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: AF121188

    ABSTRACT: Cavitation which leads to head falloff and feed system instabilities are a constant source of problems for the low net positive suction head (NPSH) pumps that are needed for advanced liquid rocket engines. Head falloff limits the pumps capability to deliver propellant at the required pressure and cavitation induced instabilities are a significant source of structural failures in rocket ...

  9. High-Power High-Efficiency Power Amplifiers for Synchrotron Light Sources

    SBC: Green Mountain Radio Research Company            Topic: 13d

    Accelerators used for nuclear-physics research require megawatts of radio-frequency energy. They currently employ vacuum-tube power amplifiers or conventional solid-state amplifiers that are inefficient and therefore consume a great deal of prime power. Many other applications including semiconductor processing, cellular-telephone base station transmitters and military communication systems simila ...
