  3. Continuous Manufacturing of Twisted Stacked Superconductor Cables with Integral Electrical Insulation


    REBCO superconductors are being considered for use in high field magnets for Magnetic Fusion Energy due to their potential for reducing facility size and cost. However, the anisotropy of REBCO tapes resulting from the planar nature of the crystals in the material leads to significant losses in expected current as well as leading to non-uniform magnetic fields. Transposition of the tapes in a cabl ...

  4. A Robust Wireless Communication System for Harsh Environments Including Nuclear Facilities

    SBC: DIRAC Solutions, Inc.            Topic: 30a

    There is strong need to develop new robust RF communication systems to support wireless communications for sensor data and instrumentation control in harsh environments. The nuclear industry has many examples of such environments, including geological repositories and facilities such as nuclear power plants. High-quality reliable wireless communications between operators and automated control syst ...

  5. Solar Load Balancing Software

    SBC: Extensible Energy, Inc.            Topic: 13a

    To minimize the impact of each distributed solar installation on the grid (and hence, to increase the use of solar everywhere), customers must be able to use a greater percentage of the energy generated by their own solar panels within their own building or facility. Currently, systems within commercial and industrial facilities are poorly adapted to this objective. PV production is often monitor ...

  6. Development and Testing of Advanced Inter-well and Inter-Stage Pressure Pulse Analysis for Fracture Diagnostics Phase II

    SBC: GeoMechanics Technologies            Topic: 19a

    Multi-stage hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling technologies have been primary contributors to the very substantial increase in natural gas and oil production from shale and tight sand formations in the US over recent years. With increased application of fracturing in horizontal wells, it is critical to better characterize and monitor “where the fractures go” both to optimize producti ...

  7. High Power CADRs and Associated Mechanisms for Next Generation CMB Experiments

    SBC: High Precision Devices, Inc.            Topic: 29e

    Cooling experiments to ultra-cold temperatures permits exceptionally sensitive measurements to be made. This enables the study of subjects from quantum computation to subtle variations in the cosmic microwave background (CMB). To date, there is only one practical technology which can continuously cool high power experiments below 0.2 Kelvin, the Helium Dilution Refrigerator (DR). These refrigerato ...

  8. Removable, Sequestration Coatings for Mitigating Hazardous Contaminants Related to Deactivation and Decommissioning Activities

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: 13e

    The Department of Energy (DOE)’s Oak Ridge Integrated Facility Disposition Project (IFDP) involves demolishing and upgrading infrastructure at the Y-12 Complex. Elemental mercury (Hg) and related species have been identified as high priority contaminants at Y-12. Strippable, fixative coatings with visual indication of contaminant capture can offer in-situ monitoring and characterization capabili ...

  9. Optical Humidity Sensors for Building Energy Performance and Air Quality Control

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: 11b

    As novel building envelopes are implemented to reduce energy use, indoor air quality can be compromised. Humidity sensing must be part of any advanced indoor air quality system, but existing humidity sensors do not maintain accuracy over extended periods of time, so a humidity sensing technology with long- term stability and costs competitive with current sensor products is needed. Luminescence-ba ...

  10. Diagnostics of Chlorine Induced Stress Corrosion Cracking Using Laser Ultrasonics

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: 31c

    The stainless steel canister inside a dry cask storage system (DCSS) used to store spent nuclear fuel is at risk for chlorine-induced stress corrosion cracking (SCC), especially near welds and at storage sites exposed to high humidity. It is highly desirable to have a viable technique for in-situ nondestructive evaluation of SCC, specifically to measure the depth of the crack along its length. Las ...
