  1. Recovery Act- Advanced Technology High Efficiency Low Cost Small Turbine for DG and CHP


    Efficient and environmentally friendly power generation is a national goal. While large scale power plants are demonstrating thermal efficiencies of 50%, the cost and environmental impact of increasing the size of current power plants and expansion of the grid to distribute this power are making this approach increasingly difficult and expensive. Alternative distributed power gen systems driven by ...

  2. Grid 2.0: Collaboration and Sharing on the Grid

    SBC: GALOIS, INC.            Topic: 54c

    Grid computing, the application of many loosely-coupled computers in federation to provide shared resources makes significant compute or storage capabilities accessible to distributed teams of researchers. In doing so, it also poses a challenge: How do distributed teams collaborate effectively with these resources? This project will determine how best to apply social and collaboration software ...

  3. A Stochastic Integration Toolkit fo rComprehensive Global Weather and Climate Models

    SBC: Argos Intelligence, LLC            Topic: 823

    Stochastic parameterization of large scale models is becoming an important tool for evaluating climate predictability and for enabling accurate representation of effects of micro-scale and short time physics on long time climate statistics. The models currently used to evaluate climate risk do not incorporate these stochastic effects, but represent multi-year development and collaboration between ...

  6. Nanotechnology-Based Condition Monitoring Sensors for Generation IV Electrical Insulation Systems

    SBC: Polymer Aging Concepts Inc            Topic: 66a

    Insulation system degradation resulting in component failure represents a significant contribution to reliability and cost issues facing the nuclear power industry. For example, the Electric Power Research Institute found that 37% of motor failures were due to winding failures, many of which involve failure of the insulation system. Although there are a number of visual, tactile or electrical test ...

  7. High Efficiency, Large-Area, 1550 nm InGaAs Photodiodes

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A back-illuminated planar InGaAs photodiode tested to have 95% quantum effiiency (QE) at 1550 nm, area greater than 1 mm2, low capacitance (125 MHz) will be improved. Although the existing Phase I device exhibited bulk material dark current generation better than commercially available devices, the sidewall-generated dark current was found to dominate the noise equiva ...

  9. Recovery Act- Lucid Energy Technologies In-conduit Hydropower

    SBC: Lucid Energy Technologies, Llp            Topic: 06b

    The U.S. faces increasing vulnerability as it depends on expensive, non renewable energy supplies from politically unstable regions. The most common renewable energy sources - wind, solar, geothermal, and traditional hydroelectric - are not growing at an adequate pace to meet demand. The U.S. needs additional innovative, pragmatic alternatives to achieve energy security.Lucid Energy Technologies, ...

  10. Nano-Engineered Anodes for Lithium-ion Batteries

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: N/A

    Renewable energy and energy storage both play a very important part in the emerging energy landscape, especially when used in concert. An example of an often-cited ¿ideal situation¿ is one where renewable energy sources, such as solar or wind, generate electricity that can then either be stored in electric vehicle batteries for transportation or in battery energy storage systems for off-grid en ...
