  1. 15 kV GTO Thyristor Module for Use in Small, Highly Efficient Current Source Inverters Utilizing AC-LinkTM Technology

    SBC: UNITED SILICON CARBIDE, INC.            Topic: 05b

    Renewable energy resources are being adopted by government entities, utility power providers and more recently by industrial behind-the-meter end-users as well. Solar power is attractive especially in areas where electricity costs are high, such as California and New Jersey. New Jersey is interesting in that its solar insolation is mild compared to the rest of the country, yet it ranks 2nd in the ...

  2. A Compact and portable laser Ultrasound Visualization Tool for Non-destructive Evaluation of Nuclear Reactor Components

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: 19e

    To ensure safe and reliable power production by nuclear power plants, a wide variety of materials and components need to undergo inspections and maintenances at pre-determined intervals. Condition based maintenance is highly desirable because it can potentially avoid unnecessarily costly maintenance actions and associated error induced failures. Consequently, it can help achieve nearly all the mai ...

  3. Advanced Hybrid Water-Heater using ECC

    SBC: Xergy Incorporated            Topic: 03c

    This proposal is based on a transformational and disruptive technology of utilizing electrochemical compression to operate heat pump cycles. Xergy Inc. has exhibited a demonstration unit of its Kuel-cell device, and engaged in thermodynamic simulations utilizing water as the working fluid in order to propose the use of this Kuel-cell technology for hybrid hot water systems. Simulations utilizing ...

  5. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millimeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 941D

    In the proposed effort, we will leverage this extensive experience and capabilities to realize a frequency agile mmW radiometer that can cover the range of DC-110 GHz and can be scaled to DC-200 GHz under Phase II. Ours is a photonic system that multiplies and up-coverts a low-frequency reference signal onto an optical carrier (laser) using EO modulation, then uses the modulation sidebands to inj ...

  6. Energy and capital-efficient sorbent-based CO2 capture

    SBC: Innosepra Llc            Topic: 16b

    Coal-fired utility boilers generate nearly 42% of the electricity in the United States, and are likely to emit more than 1.8 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide in 2013. The current state-of- the-art CO2 capture technology, aqueous amine absorption, requires significant capital and parasitic power and can raise LCOE (Levelized Cost of Electricity) by more than 80%. CO2 capture technologies with ...

  7. Enhanced Monomer (Isosorbide) Synthesis from Biomass (cellulose) Source

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 10a

    Monomers and other chemical intermediates are typically obtained from non-renewable resources, specifically petroleum. Renewable resources, such as plant derived biomass, may become a significant source of these critical materials but new technology is required for their safe and efficient production. Compact Membrane Systems (CMS), in collaboration with the group of Professor Robin Rogers at th ...

  8. High-Current Low-Cost Efficient Power Transistors for Household Appliances

    SBC: STRUCTURED MATERIALS INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: 11c

    An effective approach to addressing the needs of the American energy market includes both the exploration and implementation of alternative energy sources along with improvements in the efficiency. Thus far, a relatively untouched sector of energy consumption has been the efficiency of household and consumer devices. Small, incremental improvements in energy consumption by air conditioners, comput ...

  9. Increasing Power Capture of Wave Energy Converters via Advanced control of the PowerTake-Off

    SBC: Ocean Power Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 09a

    The increase in the ability of a wave energy converter (WEC) to capture energy from waves is critical to ensuring the viability and cost effectiveness of wave energy power devices. WECs absorb wave power by applying a back force to oppose the forces that waves exert on the system. The back force is implemented by the systems Power Takeoff and is typically chosen via a constant damping value (resis ...

  10. Intuitive Open Platform Usage of ASCR Resources in NumPy

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: 02c

    The Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) program from the Department of Energy (DOE) has over the years sponsored the development of many important codes, such as Lattice QCD, Trilinos, PETSc, and Paraview, some of which are libraries. The use libraries in their code allows scientists to concentrate their efforts on their science rather than on the implementation of an often-implemented m ...
