  3. Microgrid Wind Turbine for Distributed Generation

    SBC: Pika Energy Llc            Topic: 07c

    Establishing a secure domestic supply of clean energy has emerged as an existential challenge facing the US, given geopolitical threats to global energy supplies and serious risks arising from climate change. Utility-scale wind turbine technology has grown rapidly to supply 2% of US electricity needs, but many regions are not suitable for large wind turbines. Distributed generation of wind energy ...

  5. Computational Design of Weldable High-Cr Ferritic Steel

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: 22c

    Increasing the steam temperature of supercritical boilers from 1,000F to 1,400F can raise the operating efficiency of next-generation AUSC coal-fired power plants from about 32% to about 42% and address compelling environmental issues, while also enhancing national security, domestic employment, economic stability, balance of trade and U.S. GDP through increased use of domestic coal. Low Cr conten ...

  6. High Energy Density Li-ion Battery with Enhanced Safety, Durability, and Sustainability

    SBC: INVENTEK CORP            Topic: 10e

    Conventional Li-ion cells/batteries for hybrid and electric vehicles have difficulty meeting USABC goals for performance/cost that are required for commercially-viable EV. The prevailing large format pouch/prismatic has the advantage of low packaging weight/volume, 10% at cell level, but is doubled (100% increase) in transitioning to the battery. Aside from the reduced energy density (accommodatio ...

  7. Ultra High Power NSOM Probe Based on Low Loss High Refractive Index Contrast Nanoscale Tip Integrated with Laser and Detector

    SBC: OptoNet            Topic: 16b

    Near-field scanning optical microscope (NSOM) offers the use of a nano-dimension light energy source with a diameter much smaller than the wavelength of light to achieve resolutions significantly (around 10 times) better than that of the usual optical microscope. NSOM has found wide usages and become an important measurement instrument for nano-technologies, nano-manufacturing, optical technologie ...

  9. Method for the Nondestructive Detection of Cracking in Cast Stainless Steel Components

    SBC: Interwav, Inc.            Topic: 58a

    Cast austenitic stainless steel (CASS) can be found in every light water reactor primary coolant loop system in both boiling water and pressure water nuclear reactors. To date, no effective in-service volumetric nondestructive method exists for the inspection of this material even though some components fabricated from CASS are subject to inspection requirements described in the American Society o ...

  10. High Radiation Fluence Tolerant Temperature Sensors for In-Core Use

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: 58a

    The need for high stability measurement of temperature is essential for monitoring incore reactor use in planned Gen-IV reactor designs, especially the next generation nuclear plants (NGNP) such as the SFR (Sodium-cooled Fast Reactors). These reactors are planned to operate by means of fast neutron reactions with neutron fluence up to 1025cm-2. These operating conditions lead to material damage by ...
