  3. Development of a 2 MW CW Waterload for Electron Cyclotron Heating Systems

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: 56b

    Gyrotrons are being developed for ITER and other fusion systems that produce 2 MW CW of RF power for electron cyclotron heating. Currently there are no waterloads available to test gyrotrons at this power level. The U.S. also is responsible for providing 1.5 MW loads and 2.0 MW loads for ITER. Calabazas Creek Research, Inc. developed prelimnary designs in Phase I that efficiently distrib

  7. Auto-Commissioning and Auto-Discovery Control System for Solid State Lighting

    SBC: Redwood Systems            Topic: 17c

    Lighting control systems are expensive, complex, and often piecemeal in their approach to how to manage light spaces. We aim to take advantage of the unique voltage and power properties of solid state lighting (SSL) to create a novel lighting power and control system that addresses cost, energy usage, complexity, and comprehensive coverage. For solid state lighting, Redwood Systems sees cost-sav ...

  8. 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, ...

  9. An Energy-Efficient Klystron Upgrade for the Jefferson Laboratory CEBAF Linac

    SBC: Far-Tech, Inc.            Topic: 46b

    The klystrons in use at CEBAF are operated at low efficiency and the prices for servicing of existing tubes and for purchasing spare tubes have been increasing. FAR-TECH, Inc. studied a number of options in regards to improving the efficiency of the klystron systems, as well as replacement technologies such as solid state amplifiers. In Phase I, the solid state amplifier option was identified as ...

  10. Direct Conversion of Carbon Dioxide to Methanol

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: 13c

    Although carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology has received the most attention for its potential to reduce emissions, processes that convert CO2 into a useful product can provide a positive return on investment and not just be an unrecoverable cost. Compared to CCS technology, the potential revenue generated by the use of CO2-based product is likely to grow popular with time while reducing ...
