  1. A Low-Cost Modular Optical Voltage Sensor for Power Transmission Applications

    SBC: Fieldmetrics Inc.            Topic: 05

    Because investment in the United States power-grid infrastructure has not kept pace with increased energy demands, existing power lines must operate close to conservative safety limits. Advanced instrumentation can simultaneously improve efficiency and maintain reliability by enabling true dynamic rating, identifying grid operational instability, and improving operator response to contingencies. ...

  3. Additive Manufacturing of High Strength Steel Components for the Small Modular Reactor

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 07a

    It is expected that advanced and additive manufacturing will substantially reduce deployment times of the Small Modular Reactor (SMR). Some estimates predict that deployment schedules could be accelerated by up to 6 months while reducing component fabrication costs by 20% or more through the adoption of advanced and additive manufacturing innovations. However, additive manufactured components are ...

  5. Advanced, Low-Cost Indoor Heat Exchanger for Geothermal Heat Pump Systems

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 29g

    Geothermal heat pumps have the potential to significantly reduce residential and commercial energy usage for space heating, air conditioning, and hot water. The largest barrier to wider adoption of this technology is the high installation cost relative to conventional air conditioners, gas furnaces, and heat pumps. The high cost of geothermal heat pumps is due to the high cost of the ground loop a ...

  6. An Integrated Ecoroof Energy Analysis Model

    SBC: Quantec, L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    Vegetated roof (ecoroofs) offer diverse benefits, including energy savings and stormwater runoff reductions. Installation of ecoroofs in both new and existing buildings has expanded significantly during the past five years, with several local jurisdictions providing incentives for their installation and the LEED green building rating system offering multiple credits for them. However, discussion ...

  8. AnomLoc: A perfSONAR-based Distributed Network Anomaly Detection and Localization

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: 01a

    Data-intensive scientific applications incline to high performance computing which is getting more and more widespread in supercomputing centers, research laboratories, and universities. DoE and many organizations need an automatic and adaptive network analysis tool for effective anomaly detection and localization in the high speed network. Currently approaches, Pythia, APD, etc., are unable to pr ...

  9. Atomically Precise Membranes for the Separation of Hydrocarbons

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 15a

    Separations often account for a majority of process costs. This is because all traditional separation processes have inherent weaknesses that prevent the system from achieving perfect (or even near perfect in many instances) selectivity. These weaknesses result in large recycle streams and require multiple separation units in concert in order to produce a product clean enough for use or sale. An a ...

  10. Balloon Platforms for Remote Sensing of Water Quality in Mixing Zones

    SBC: MixZon, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We hypothesize that lightweight infrared (IR) and video cameras mounted on a unmanned tethered helium balloon and accessed via a wireless network can remotely sense water quality at site scales. We will demonstrate the technical feasibility of a ground based network to monitor and control balloon mounted IP-enabled wireless IR and video cameras for measurement of the spatial distribution of surfa ...
