  1. Wide-Range High-Boost Turbocharging System Using Advanced Aerodynamic Design Features

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: 14d

    Increasingly stringent exhaust emissions and fuel economy legislation is forcing automotive engine designers to: 1) demand increased pressure ratios from turbocharger compressors to ensure complete fuel combustion, 2) use Exhaust Gas Recirculation for emission reduction, and 3) reduce engine displacement while maintaining or even increasing output power to reduce fuel consumption. These three chan ...

  2. Magnetic Bearings for Supercritical CO2 Service

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: 29f

    The technology development for the supercritical CO2 (sCO2) power plant is well underway, and the first pilot plants are now under construction. The new pilot plants are sized for a 10 MW net power output; a good size to gain valuable data for larger utility scale power plants. This is also a very good size for the smaller, distributed power applications. The distributed power application is envis ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  9. Scalable Network of Low-Cost, Self-Powered Wireless Sensors For Commercial Buildings

    SBC: MicroStrain, Inc.            Topic: 09a

    Conventional indoor environmental monitoring technologies are expensive, cumbersome to install and maintain, and do not provide the distributed granularity required to capture the necessary details for efficient energy management of commercial buildings. Developments in wireless sensor networks (WSN) provide substantial framework for monitoring and addressing indoor environments at scale. However ...

  10. Development of a Self-Adaptive Air Turbine for Wave Energy Conversion using an Oscillaating Water Column (OWC) Air System

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: 19a

    The oscillating water column (OWC) is a candidate technology for the economical recovery of the projected 17.5 x 1012 kW-hr energy that is available from the world¿s oceans. While the relative dynamics between the OWC system and the incident water waves are mathematically understood, computational solutions have not been used to ¿tune¿ the OWC turbine-generator sub-systems to operate where the ...
