  1. High Power Igniter for Vehicles

    SBC: DIVERSIFIED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 08b

    Lean-burn engines have the potential to provide more efficient and cleaner operation. However, extremely lean mixtures are more difficult to ignite than the near-stoichiometric mixtures used in todays combustion engines. Reliably igniting extremely lean fuel-air mixtures requires more energy be efficiently delivered to the fuel charge than present-day spark ignition systems typically supply. A mor ...

  2. Combustion of liquid fuels in the air core of rotating water for application in a downhole steam generator

    SBC: HYDROFLAME TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 18a

    HydroFlame Technologies, LLC (HFT) is proposing to study the feasibility of combusting liquid fuels in the air core of rotating water for application in a downhole steam generator (DHSG). Deep reserves ( & gt;2500 ft) can be accessed by application of DHSGs. DHSGs increase the efficiency of steam generation and injection by eliminating heat losses via pipeline, wellbore and vent gases. The operat ...

  4. A novel OLED luminaire system for circadian lighting applications

    SBC: Litecontrol            Topic: 04a

    Conventional lighting systems for corridors and other public spaces in hospitals, long-term care facilities, progressive- care living centers, residential units for seniors, dormitories, and prisons often operate at full power throughout the night using white light sources such as fluorescent lamps. These white light sources provide energy at wavelengths that are known to stimulate the human circa ...

  5. Accountability Instrument Using a New Neutron-Gamma Sensor

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 19c

    DOEs mission of nuclear material control and accountability (NMC & amp;A) requires adequate tools, therefore, the development of new sensor materials and measurement techniques for NMC & amp;A is important for the future of the U.S. nuclear fuel cycle. These techniques will reduce proliferation risks and enhance confidence in nuclear energy. To achieve material control using accountability instr ...

  6. Solid-State Sensors and Sensor Arrays for Advanced Pipe Inspection

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 19e

    Nuclear power is an important part of the Nations energy security providing 20 percent of U.S. electricity generation without the emission of gases associated with global climate change and air pollution. The DOE would like to improve and optimize the performance of nuclear power plants by improving the reliability of monitoring plant equipment to improve diagnostics, safety and reliability. This ...

  7. Thermoelectric Power Platform for In-Situ Monitoring of Nuclear Spent Fuel Storage

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 20b

    Dry storage systems are designed to safely confine the used nuclear fuel by providing radiation shielding, heat dissipation and protection of fuel assemblies from outside elements. To avoid dry storage system breach due to material deterioration or other factors, sensors can be sealed inside to monitor internal storage environment. Since direct signal and power connections to the sensors are not d ...

  8. Software Tool for Code-compliant Assessment of Wind Loads on Solar Photovoltaic Panels

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: 07c

    Presently, the proper installation of PV panels to withstand wind loads is conducted by licensed installers who use and individually interpret the relevant building codes and standards. The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures (ASCE Standard 7-10) includes the most comprehensive design standard for wind loads on roof-mounted PV systems. ...

  9. High Voltage Lithium-Ion Battery Material

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: 08a

    High voltage lithium-ion battery cathode materials do not cycle efficiently and rapidly lose capacity at elevated temperatures. The lack of commercializable high voltage cathode materials impedes the implementation of high potential anodes that can safely and efficiently accept charging at very high rates. This limits the regenerative braking energy acceptance of lithium- ion batteries in HEVs, ...

  10. Infrared laser direct absorption spectroscopy for carbon isotope measurements from UAVs

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 17b

    Stable isotopologues of carbon dioxide and methane can be powerful tracers for identifying the sources of greenhouse gases. We propose to develop extremely lightweight infrared laser spectrometers for measurements of isotopologues of CO2 and CH4 to be usable for UAV airborne surveys with high precision and speed for studies of Arctic climate change and the terrestrial carbon cycle. The instrumenta ...
