  1. A Proposed Study of Liquid Air Energy Storage (LAES) with Fossil Energy Generation

    SBC: Aerem Nova Energy Storage Inc            Topic: 25a

    Coal plants are designed as ‘baseload plants’ and are not able to profitably operate in market environments with negative pricing.This project will define a process model that shows how deep electricity storage of several hundred megawatthours can allow a coal plant to absorb negative or low pricing and benefit from high demand curves. We will show how electricity storage using cryogenically c ...

  2. Integration of Coal-fired Power Plants Fireside Optimization Tools with the IDAES Platform.


    This Small Business Innovative Research project targets the development of a computer-based tool (model) for use by coal-fired power plants to predict heat transfer losses in the water wall and convective pass sections of the boiler. The proposed tool combines Microbeam’s mechanistic ash generation and deposition models (AGM) for use in the Institute for the Design of Advanced Energy Systems (ID ...

  3. Cyber Security Detection at the Edge of the Grid

    SBC: Athena Power, Inc.            Topic: 01b

    Cyber hacking of critical infrastructure is a concern for our national security, especially in the power/electric utility sector where utilities loose $13.2M per attack. Given the vulnerabilities within the value-chain of electric delivery, the distribution network is an enormous blind-spot and highly susceptible to cyber intrusion. This project looks to address this issue, as sought by the DoE, b ...

  4. Development of a Wind Turbine Blade Surface Coating to Reduce Damage due to Lightning

    SBC: AQUANIS, INC.            Topic: 14b

    Every year, the global wind industry loses an estimated $100M or more to damage caused by lightning.A new blade coating will reduce the damage to wind turbine blades caused by lightning by promoting the formation of ionization channels over the surface of the turbine blades, providing a safe external path for lightning energy to reach ground and preventing damaging blade punctures.The coating cons ...

  5. Integrated Membrane Reactor for Enhancing Thermal & Chemical Reactors

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 06c

    With development of shale gas fracking, large amounts of methane and ethane have now become available at low cost. With this low cost ethane it is desirable to convert low cost ethane to high value ethylene. Oxidative dehydrogenation (ODH) for low cost conversion of ethane to ethylene is a potentially attractive route. ODH is an exothermic process for converting ethane to ethylene. By contrast pro ...
