  1. A High Efficiency SACI 1 kW Generator System with Integrated Waste Energy Recovery

    SBC: Air Squared, Inc.            Topic: DEFOA0001380

    We propose a novel high efficiency (≈40%) generator system capable of providing 1 kWe along with hot water on-demand. The integration of two novel concepts: 1) an internal combustion engine (ICE) operating on Spark-Assisted Compression Ignition (SACI) combustion of natural gas (NG), and 2) a bottoming Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) with waste energy recovery (WER) from ICE exhaust enables the overa ...

  4. Novel Rewarming Technique for Cyropreserved Tissue

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DHP15014

    TDAs proposes to develop a novel RF heating process for rewarming cryogenically preserved tissues and organs. TDAs approach is to optimize the RF frequency and power, along with the chemical composition, size and morphology of infused nanoparticles so that they heat tissue samples rapidly and uniformly. In this manner, the cryoprotectant solutions pass from the vitrified state to the liquid stat ...

  5. Thermal-Mechanical Stress in Semiconductor Devices

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: 14a

    As semiconductors heat up, thermal expansion induces mechanical stresses and these stresses can either cause failure, or a change in the performance due to changes in electron transport. Understanding these e ects is challenging due to the coupled physics nature of the problem. General statement of how this problem is being addressed This problem is being addressed by solving for each of the separ ...

  6. Visualizing staggered fields and analyzing electromagnetic data with PerceptEM

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: 41e

    In order for Moores law (exponential growth of compute capability) to continue to hold, the bandwidths of interconnects will need to be increased by 10x or moreto well beyond 100Gbs. This represents a formidable challenge to Integrated Circuit (IC) manufacturers because higher frequency will exacerbate already strained power dissipation of traditional copper interconnects. As a result, server and ...

  7. Development of On-Site Conical Spiral Welders for Large Wind Turbine Towers

    SBC: Keystone Tower Systems, Inc.            Topic: 07a

    Larger, taller wind turbines could significantly reduce the cost of wind energy and enable much broader deployment, but traditional tower designs cannot cost-effectively scale up due to the size constraints associated with road and rail transportation. Wind turbine towers face a critical bottleneck in the form of the 14-foot diameter limit imposed by over-road transport. With current designs, to ...

  8. Advanced Ceramic Materials and Packaging Technologies for Realizing Sensors Operable up to 1800 Celsius in Advanced Energy Generation Systems

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: 14c

    There is a need for condition monitoring sensors capable of functioning in the harshest environments associated with advanced power systems that will: directly contribute to improving system control, protect capital equipment investment, and promote safety through prevention of catastrophic equipment failure. These harsh environments include extreme temperatures (800-1800C), high press ...

  9. Membrane-Sorbent Hybrid System for Post Combustion Carbon Capture

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 12e

    The electricity produced from fossil fuels is essential to the worlds prosperity and security. On the other hand, increasing atmospheric CO2 concentration caused by the fossil fuel combustion are causing concerns regarding global warming. Although there are several methods for separating CO2 from the flue gases at existing coal-fired power plants, all of them have significant drawbacks, includin ...

  10. Advanced Laser Driver for Inertial Fusion Energy

    SBC: Aqwest LLC            Topic: 17a

    Inertial confinement fusion (ICF) offers to tap almost unlimited sources of inexpensive energy. While ICF has been demonstrated at the Department of Energy (DOE) Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), its commercialization to inertial fusion energy (IFE) is impeded by the lack of an efficient and economical laser driver. Drivers for todays ICF facilities generate only a few pulses per day ...
