  1. Underground Cable Advanced Diagnostics

    SBC: Underground Systems, Inc.            Topic: 57b

    In order to optimize the operating efficiency of the underground transmission system utilities must be able to safely maximize the power cable systems capacity. This allows the operator to: (1) Establish efficient generation scheduling; (2) Maximize power transfer capability; and (3) Extend decision time and options when responding to system contingencies. These are critical elements when develo ...

  2. STRAW- A Hydrogen-Specific Pressure Gauge for XHV

    SBC: Saxet Surface Science            Topic: 45e

    A fundamental issue with high average current photoelectron guns is the generation of stray electrons and ions which can damage the photoemitter. Both the photogenerated electron bunch and any field emitted electrons can potentially directly impact the photocathode, desorb molecules from the gun structure and act as ionization agents for backgroundgas atoms. Ion backbombardment of the photoemitter ...

  3. Implementation of an Energy-Saving Bro-Aware Load Balancer at 100 Gbps with Closed-Loop Flow Policy Control

    SBC: RESERVOIR LABS INC            Topic: 40a

    In an increasingly hostile computing environment, Network Intrusion Detection Systems (NIDS) serve an indispensable role in preserving the integrity of computer networks. This comes to manifest as the Department of Energy (DOE) is working at a national level to secure a number of strategic network entry points using Bro, a powerful NIDS developed by the networking group at the International Comput ...

  4. High Value Renewable Chemical Production from CO2 and Biodiesel Plant Byproduct

    SBC: UNITED ENVIRONMENT & ENERGY, LLC            Topic: 24f

    5,790 million metric tons of CO2 were emitted from fossil fuels in the U.S. in 2008. A beneficial, practical application of captured CO2 would bring significant economic and environmental benefits to CO2 generating industries. Meanwhile, biodiesel production yields around 10 weight % of byproduct glycerol. 230,000 tons of crude glycerol were produced in 2008, and 986,000 tons of glycerol are expec ...

  5. Highly Selective Proton-Conducting Composite Membranes for Redox Flow Batteries

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: 20a

    Redox flow batteries (RFBs) are a type of electrical energy storage device in which the reactants (and reaction products) are stored in liquid tanks. Redox flow batteries have many advantages over conventional batteries, and when fully developed could provide the utility industry with improved methods for dynamic operation of the electricity supply grid by providing energy storage for load leveli ...

  6. HERMES-Based X-ray Strip Detector

    SBC: Sydor Instruments, LLC            Topic: 13a

    The effectiveness of synchrotron radiation science is being hindered by the limited availability of advanced detectors. The capability to produce photon fluxes has outpaced the ability to detect and measure the resultant photons. This is due to the limited deployment of existing detectors as well as very limited development effort to provide new advanced capabilities. As synchrotron radiation expe ...

  7. Novel Switching Devices for Accelerator Modulatros

    SBC: MTECH Laboratories, LLC            Topic: 14e

    This project addresses very high power switches for accelerators used in high-energy physics research and particle research. Existing devices have relatively slow switching times, compared to those required for the application. The proposed program seeks to develop high-voltage, high-current devices with much faster switching times and reduced conduction losses, thereby also improving reliabilit ...

  8. Advanced Membrane Technology for Helium Recover

    SBC: Helios-NRG, LLC            Topic: 10d

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase 1 project will lead to the development of a simple, cost effective technology which can recover helium from gas reservoirs containing helium concentrations too low to permit economic recovery at present. This will enable helium recovery from fields currently producing natural gas but considered uneconomical for the recovery of the contained heli ...

  9. Ultra Lightweight High Pressure Hydrogen Fuel Tanks Reinforced With Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: 03a

    One effective way to lower the weight, thus decreasing the carbon fiber usage and lowering the cost, of a CFRP tank is to improve the mechanical properties of the CFRP composite resin matrix using nano-reinforcement. Using the resin matrix itself as a source of composite strength, along with the carbon fiber reinforcement, results in a tank that requires less carbon fiber material. This solution d ...

  10. Ultra-Thin III-V Films for Tandem Photovoltaic Application

    SBC: Nano EnerTex            Topic: 05a

    III-V semiconductors based solar cells display the highest sunlight conversion efficiency. Nevertheless, the material cost of current III-Vs and their fabrication process is very high which impedes their use for flat panel, large market applications. This project aims to explore, evaluate and implement defect tolerant high efficiency tandem solar cells based on more earth abundant III-V materials ...
