  3. Smart GaN-Based Inverters for Grid-tied Energy Storage Systems

    SBC: InnoCit, LLC            Topic: 10b

    Battery storage systems are the backbone of the future gird systems. These systems provide distributed energy storage capabilities for smoothening the load profile and coping with generation and load power fluctuations. By incorporating these resources into the electrical grid, voltage stability and overall reliability of the grid will improve. Furthermore, these resources compensate for fluctuati ...

  5. THz spectral imaging to assess metal components in concrete structures

    SBC: Physics, Materials, and Applied Mathematics Research L.L.C.            Topic: 32e

    Long-term corrosion of steel in concrete structures is a particular concern for nuclear power plants as there is a compelling public interest in the safe operation of these plants for the many decades that they are in operation and the additional decades it takes for them to be decommissioned. Inspection techniques that are both non-destructive and which can detect long-term corrosion at its earli ...

  6. 100W Mode-locked Green Laser for GaAs Photoemission Guns

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: 38e

    To address the DoE need for a high-power laser source used for synchronous photoinjection of GaAs photoemission guns, AdValue Photonics proposes to develop a radio-frequency synchronized 100W mode-locked green laser source at a GHz rate. Previously-demonstrated GHz-rate modelocked solid-state/fiber lasers suffer from a reliability issue due to the use of fragile free-space bulk optics for their la ...

  7. Development of Iron Phosphate Waste Forms for Fission Products Waste Streams

    SBC: MO-SCI Corp.            Topic: 19g

    Most liquid high-level nuclear waste is currently being immobilized to a solid form as a borosilicate glass by vitrification. However, many nuclear wastes have complex and diverse chemical compositions that reduce their compatibility with borosilicate glass. The current baseline spent nuclear fuel reprocess generates secondary waste streams that generally include large amounts of MoO3 and noble me ...

  8. LOW-COST, HIGH EFFICIENCY INTEGRATION OF SOLID-STATE LIGHTING AND BUILDING CONTROLS USING A PET POWER DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM

    SBC: VoltServer            Topic: 03a

    The primary barrier to widespread adoption of solid-state lighting is its high initial cost relative to other options approximately two times more expensive than equivalent compact fluorescent lamps, and five times more expensive than equivalent downlight fixtures. The performance and cost of solid-state lighting driver circuitry, which comprises 15-20% of the cost of a commercial lamp, operates ...
