  1. Recovery Act- Centipod Wave Energy Converter

    SBC: DEHLSEN ASSOCIATES, LLC            Topic: 06c

    The 4.5MW Centipod ocean wave generating system, a horizontally stable floating platform, optimally yawed (active) to wavefront exposure has 56 80kW flotation pods driving hydraulic rams. Fluid drives the hydroelectric generating system providing cost competitive electric power. Inherent survivability in extreme seas uses methodologies from offshore oil production. The proposed plan will provide c ...

  2. Novel, High Performance Li-Ion Cell

    SBC: Farasis Energy, Inc.            Topic: 15c

    Current Li-ion technology offers the highest energy density of any rechargeable battery system. Unfortunately, Li-ion systems still do not meet the energy density and cost goals for emerging EV markets including PHEVs. A new strategy to meeting these goals includes selecting high capacity battery materials, currently incompatible with conventional assembly of Li-ion cells in the discharged state, ...

  5. Recovery Act- Compact Polymeric Heat Exchanger

    SBC: Porogen Corporation            Topic: 10a

    Most heat exchangers utilized in process industries are made from metals. These heat exchangers are bulky, heavy, subject to corrosion and microbiological fouling which leads to reduction in performance and increase in cost. The plastic heat exchangers can alleviate some of these problems. However, commercial plastic heat exchangers are less efficient and have a limited operating temperature range ...

  6. A Modified Internal Tin Tube Nb3Sn Conductor for Higher Non-Copper Critical Current Density

    SBC: Supercon, Inc.            Topic: 36a

    Future magnets for High Energy Physics (HEP) require superconductors with improved high critical current carrying capacity at high magnetic fields, decreased effective filament sizes and lower cost. An improved method of fabricating such superconductors is being investigated using the Internal Tin Tube (ITT) Process that will improve the critical current density achievable. In Phase I, Sn-Ta all ...

  7. Electronics for Large Superconducting Tunnel Junction Detector Arrays for Synchrotron Soft X-ray Research

    SBC: XIA LLC            Topic: 06c

    While the DOE has spent billions of dollars over the past two decades building, staffing and equipping four national synchrotron radiation facilities to support advanced research in all fields by supplying intense brilliant x-ray beams covering a wide range of energies, x-ray detector capabilities have not kept pace with developments in x-ray sources and beam line facilities. Thus, while x-ray fl ...

  10. Recovery Act- Real-time Remote Detection of HR-VOC Content in Flares

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 05b

    The large quantities of natural gas produced in the oil refining process pose a serious explosion hazard, and are disposed of by open air burning, commonly referred to as flaring. Incomplete combustion of the natural gas results in the release of hazardous organic compounds, which pose serious risks to the environment and to public health. Real-time monitoring and control of flare combustion effic ...
