  2. Low-Cost, Plug-and-Play Data Diodes for Solar Equipment Cybersecurity

    SBC: Fend Incorporated            Topic: 12b

    Solar energy operators need real­time situational awareness and the insight of advanced analytics to compete in the energy marketplace. These benefits require increased connectivity, but the threat of distributed cyberattack on control systems is exacerbated by the limited number of vendors supplying millions of solar devices. Firewalls and software­based security are inherently vulnerable to at ...

  3. Microscope Residual-Gas Luminescent Beam Profile Monitors

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 23c

    Advanced beam diagnostics are essential for reliable operation of high-performance accelerators and the intense beams produced by them. Non-invasive diagnostics can be used continuously with intense beams, while invasive techniques interfere with the beams and distort the beam profiles. In addition, traditional solid-based beam monitoring instrumentation produces unacceptable levels of radiation o ...

  4. Low Cost, Power Dense, Axial Gap, Rare-Earth-Free PM Motor for Electric Drive Vehicles

    SBC: Magnetic Power Motion            Topic: 13b

    Cost and size reductions are needed in the electric traction drive system currently used for electric drive vehicles (EDV) to make them cost and performance competitive with fossil fuel vehicles. Such cost parity is critical to achieving public acceptance and expanded market share of EDV products. To achieve cost and size parity, the DoE’s Electrical and Electronics Technical Team has establishe ...

  5. Silicon Carbide Multilayer Piping for 900 C supercritical sCO2 Brayton Cycle Use

    SBC: Ceramic Tubular Products            Topic: 30f

    In Topic 30.f. DOE requests small business proposals to develop advanced components for energy conversion systems that support supercritical carbon dioxide (sCO2) Brayton power cycle systems. Such power cycles offer increased conversion efficiency, over 50%, as compared to current systems, and are therefore of interest for advanced high temperature nuclear power plants, as well as for Generation 3 ...

  6. Parameterized Model Order Reduction Strategy for Fast Running CFD-Quality Transient Transport through Nuclear Reactors

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: 30d

    Computational fluid dynamics methods are increasingly used for high fidelity modeling of complex systems, especially nuclear power systems. For example, the phenomenon of thermal stratification in a sodium-cooled fast reactor under natural circulation conditions is resolvable with computational fluid dynamics, but not traditional system-level models. The high accuracy of computational fluid dynami ...

  7. Enable Dendrite-Free Lithium Anodes in High Energy Batteries for Electric Vehicles

    SBC: Beltech            Topic: 13a

    Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries with low cost ($100/kWh) and high energy density (500 Wh/kg) are critically desired to meet the ever-increasing needs for energy. One way to achieve the goals is to enable lithium metal as the anode for lithium-ion batteries owing to its ultrahigh theoretical capacity (3,860 mAh/g) and the high negative potential (-3.04 V vs. standard hydrogen electrode). However ...

  8. Simulating Buildings While the Design is Still in the Architect’s Imagination

    SBC: Gard Analytics Inc            Topic: 09c

    Decisions made early in the schematic design of buildings can have significant energy impacts that the architect probably did not even consider during the decision-making process. The decision-making process is probably more focused on space locations and overall look of the building than any other criteria. This proposed SBIR project hopes to insert an understanding of the energy impacts into thi ...

  9. Low Tortuosity Electrodes Enabling High Specific Energy Li Ion Batteries

    SBC: GLACIGEN MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 13a

    Despite all of the advantages that electric vehicles bring, better battery performance remains a requirement of widespread commercial adoption. Areas of specific interest include improved specific energy and energy density coupled with improved manufacturing processes which reduce costs and increase throughputs. This project aims to demonstrate a unique processing method, freeze tape casting, whic ...

  10. Industrial Process Optimization of High-Value Byproducts from Novel Fungi-Based Food and Beverage Wastewater Treatment Technology

    SBC: EMERGY LLC            Topic: 08a

    The Department of Energy (DOE) views the utilization of wet organic waste, such as food and beverage wastewater, to produce high value bioproducts as a strategic approach to the development of an advanced and sustainable economy. Wet organic waste treatment currently places a significant burden on producers but represents a potential 77 million metric ton per year feedstock. However, wet organic w ...
