  1. Transmission Incipient Detection and Fault Location (TID&FL)

    SBC: Underground Systems, Inc.            Topic: 22a

    In order to increase the resiliency and to optimize the operating efficiency of transmission systems utilities must be able to quickly restore service after a failure. Locating faults with current technologies on underground transmission systems can be a time consuming and skilled labor intensive process often taking many days or even weeks. The proposed solution for these challenges will allow th ...

  2. Development of High-Q SRF Structures by Nitrogen Doping for Superconducting Electron Linacs

    SBC: Niowave, Inc.            Topic: 26c

    One of the most exciting recent developments in superconducting RF technology has been the discovery of a nitrogen-doping process which can reliably increase the superconducting quality factor of niobium resonators well above 1010 at high frequency (>1 GHz). This process is now well demonstrated in particular for TESLA-style 9-cell cavities at 1.3 GHz. Nitrogen doping is part of the plan for the p ...

  3. Robust Kr-85 Detectors for New Waste Cask Design

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 21b

    Dry cask storage systems (DCSS) are used to store spent nuclear fuel from nuclear power plants. Without a long term storage solution in place, storage for decades in casks may be required. High burnup fuel rods may become brittle over time presenting problems for eventual transport of the spent fuel from reactor sites to a central storage facility. It is desired to passively determine the structur ...

  4. NDT System for Metal Components in Concrete Structures

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 32e

    Improved NDT (non-destructive testing) techniques are needed for inspection of concrete structures in nuclear power plants. Steel reinforcements embedded within concrete can corrode and crack, leading to weakening of the structures, and existing NDT techniques do not provide the full picture. Condition assessment is critical in evaluating these structures in order to ensure safe, long-term operati ...

  5. Low-Cost Energy Recovery Ventilator Incorporating a High Flux Moisture-Permeable Membrane

    SBC: ASPEN PRODUCTS GROUP, INC.            Topic: 10c

    Substantial improvements to the integrity of residential building envelopes have been realized in recent years with the use of advanced house wraps, fenestration, and air sealing technologies. While tight construction significantly lowers residential energy consumption, the concomitant reduction in natural ventilation results in less frequent air turnover that can adversely impact indoor air quali ...

  6. Single Step and Continuous Synthesis of Advanced Lithium Ion Positive Electrode Material Powders using UniMelt Microwave Plasma Process

    SBC: 6K Inc            Topic: 14a

    For electric vehicles to be widely adopted as a common mode of transportation, the price of the battery packs must be reduced to $125 per kilowatt hour. Prices are currently around $200 per kilowatt our. One path to reduced cost per kilowatt hour is by reducing cathode cost and improving their energy density. Cathode materials account for up to 25% of the battery pack cost. Cost reductions can be ...

  7. High Energy-Density and Long Life-Time Lithium-Sulfur Batteries

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 14a

    Conventional lithium-ion batteries demonstrate great potential for applications in electrical vehicles, but they face some major challenges such as low energy density and high cost. It is worthwhile to pursue alternative strategies to address the barriers of cost and energy density. We propose to develop advanced rechargeable lithium-sulfur (Li-S) batteries that have much higher theoretical energy ...

  8. Ionomer Dispersion Impact On Advanced Fuel Cell and Electrolyzer Performance and Durability

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 09b

    The non-aqueous ionomer dispersion technology has demonstrated great potential to significantly improve the lifetime of proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells and electrolyzers. However, further improvements and scale-ups are needed to make this technology commercially viable. The overall objective of this project is to further develop and commercialize non-aqueous ionomer dispersion technology ...

  9. Formic Acid

    SBC: Sustainable Innovations, LLC            Topic: 09a

    In an ideal model, emitted CO2 could be used as a feedstock for producing carbon based solid products and chemicals products and intermediaries. In addition to providing economic stimulus to the U.S. manufacturing industry, the displacement of traditional synthesis routes for these chemicals from fossil fuels would help to secure U.S. energy supplies. Chemical products from the Skyre’s Electroch ...

  10. Photonic Fabrics for Optical Tagging

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: 01a

    The US continues to need improvements in capability to deal with the imminent threat of theft of nuclear weapons from a foreign storage facility by a terrorist cell with insider assistance. At the heart of this challenge is the need to develop alternative signature exploitation technologies, taggants, that can be easily observed using sensors capable of detection over large areas and at high resol ...
