  1. A Blockchain-enabled Peer-to-Peer Energy Trading Platform for Managing Complex Exchange of Kilowatt-hours and Negawatts

    SBC: BEMCONTROLS, LLC            Topic: 12c

    The structure of the electric utility business has long been a centralized model where an electric utility is the only authority selling electricity to, and buying excess rooftop PV generation, from customers. This is changing as utilities explore new business models including Distributed System Operator (DSO) models. On the other side of the meter, with the increasing penetration of rooftop solar ...

  2. Abrasion/Impact Resistant Coatings for Wind Turbine Blade Protection

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: 15a

    In most wind turbine cases, in the absence of maintenance and repair the polymer composite blades’ service life can be significantly diminished compared to original estimates, and the overall turbine efficiency can severely suffer. Current repair products such as epoxy-based fillers and/or solvent-based paints have very limited abrasion-resistancecapabilities. In addition, wind protection tapes ...

  3. Accident Condition Temperature Monitoring up to 1600??C in Gen-IV Reactors using Sapphire Fiber Optic Sensors

    SBC: LAMBDA INSTRUMENTS, INC            Topic: 55a

    The primary challenges associated with Very High Temperature Reactors (VHTR) stem from their extremely high operating temperatures, especially during accident conditions which way has necessitated new material systems to be developed for most of the core construction, including fuel. There currently exists no method to directly measure peak fuel temperature in emerging Gen-IV reactors. Lambda Inst ...

  4. Achromatic Low-Beta Interaction Region Design

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 44c

    To reach high luminosity in a collider, its beam must be focused into a small-size spot at the interaction point (IP). Achieving such a small focal spot size requires expanding the beam to a rather large size at the final focusing quadrupoles. This is space consuming and leads to large chromaticity and chromatic beam smear at the IP. Compensating these chromatic effects proved challenging because ...

  5. Adaptive MPI: Providing Dynamic RTS Support for Large-scale MPI Applications

    SBC: CHARMWORKS, INC.            Topic: 02b

    High Performance Computing technology has advanced significantly. Advanced parallel computers are being built, with DOE leadership. Yet, the American engineering/manufacturing industry has not leveraged parallel computing at a significant level, partly because of the challenging nature of modern simulation software. US competitiveness in manufacturing may suffer due to its ineffective utilization ...

  6. Adding Streaming Capabilities to HDF5

    SBC: Akadio, Inc.            Topic: 01d

    Many applications involved in real-time data collection need to monitor their data while it is being collected- This need occurs in a large and growing number of applications that use common scientific hierarchical data formats for data management, such as aircraft flight testing, autonomous vehicles, particle accelerators, and many more- There are two shortcomings to these formats that make it di ...

  7. Additive Manufacturing of BWR Lower Tie Plates

    SBC: INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: 30g

    Cost and time associated with material waste, quality control, inspection, and manufacturing of nuclear fuel assembly components can be detrimental to nuclear plant design and development. Specifically, BWR lower tie plates are prime component examples that inherently carry these issues due to their complex geometries and attachment points. The design engineer must always weigh the manufacturing p ...

  8. Additive Manufacturing of SMR Holddown Springs and Upper Nozzle Interfaces

    SBC: INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: 29g

    Cost and time associated with material waste, quality control, inspection, and manufacturing of nuclear fuel assembly components can be detrimental to nuclear plant design and development. Specifically, holddown springs are prime component examples that inherently carry these issues due to their complex geometries and attachment points. The design engineer must always weigh the manufacturing pract ...

  9. Adjustable High Power Coax RF Coupler without Moving Parts

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 13c

    A 200 kW CW fundamental RF power coupler (FPC) with an adjustable in situ coupling factor would be highly desirable for a number of applications; for example, the 352 MHz light source at APS. The normal process of adjusting the coupling by rotational movement usually requires breaking the vacuum between the coupler and the RF cavity resulting in prolonged down-times and the risk of introducing con ...

  10. Advanced Bio-derived Sorbents for CO2 Capture

    SBC: THERMOSOLV LLC            Topic: 18d

    After decades of research into carbon capture methods, we still do not have a favorable option.Current carbon capture technology using aqueous amine scrubbing has found a degree of usage in specific applications, but the drawbacks such as high cost, low capacity, degradation during cycling applications, and its corrosive nature have prevented widespread adoption. One potential solution is the deve ...
