  1. Fully Encapsulating Dielectrics for Gaseous Helium Cooled Superconducting Power Cables

    SBC: Advanced Conductor Technologies LLC            Topic: N16AT011

    The proposed program will develop dielectrics for dc superconducting power transmission cables that are cooled with cryogenic helium gas. The Dielectrics will be sealed again helium gas penetration and allow for an operating voltage of 12 kV in a pressure of 2 MPa at 50 K. The dielectrics will be designed for use with all helium facing components of power transmission systems based on CORC cables. ...

  2. Epitaxial Technologies for Gallium Oxide Ultra High Voltage Power Electronics

    SBC: AGNITRON TECHNOLOGY, INC            Topic: N16AT023

    xß-Ga2O3 has emerged as a potentially disruptive semiconductor with a predicted breakdown field of ~8 MV/cm which is more than twice the breakdown field for the incumbent wide bandgap semiconductors GaN and SiC. The availability of ß-Ga2O3 bulk substrates sets this material apart from other wide bandgap materials for power electronic applications. However, the challenge is to find suitable epita ...

  4. Physics-based Computationally Efficient Spray Combustion Models for LES of Multiphase Reacting Flows

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N17AT002

    One important challenge for the reliable prediction of liquid fuel effects on the combustion in aviation combustors and augmentors is the accurate modeling of underlying physical processes, involving the evaporation of fuels, preferential vaporization, scalar mixing and ignition. LES methodologies are required to accurately capture these transient and inherently unsteady combustion processes. In t ...

  5. Ocean Surface Vector Winds (OSVW)

    SBC: Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates, L.L.C.            Topic: N16BT026

    Ocean surface winds are critically important in naval operations. They may aid, hinder, or negate maneuvers and operations, and are a primary consideration in routing ships. Continuous and reliable information on favorable and unfavorable sea state is critical for a broad range of naval missions, including strategic ship movement and positioning, aircraft carrier operations, aircraft deployment, e ...

  7. Wireless Torque Sensor for Condition Based Maintenance

    SBC: Albido Corporation            Topic: N11AT030

    In recent years, the need for highly reliable, durable and non-intrusive systems for monitoring the health condition of naval structures becomes more and more recognized. Of particular importance is the condition based maintenance of Navy rotating machinery (motors, generators, pumps, gear systems, etc.). Such Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) systems should be able to detect failures in their ea ...

  8. Low Cost Magnetic Sensor for Mine Neutralizer Identification and Charge Placement

    SBC: QUSPIN INC.            Topic: N17AT013

    Optically pumped magnetometers provide very high performance but they cost tens of thousands of dollars, and they are large and power hungry. Recently we successfully developed and commercialized laser pumped magnetometers with size, weight and power consumption that is an order of magnitude below current state-of-the-art without sacrificing performance. In this project, the focus will be on produ ...

  9. Medium Voltage Direct Current (MVDC) Grounding System

    SBC: Continuous Solutions LLC            Topic: N16AT012

    During the Phase 1 effort, there were several achievements toward the design of grounding systems for MVDC architectures. For one, the common-mode equivalent circuit (CMEC) modeling approach that was derived at Purdue under ESRDC funding, was validated in a reduced-scale hardware setup at Purdue. The system studied consisted of a single generator, active rectifier, inverter, and propulsion machine ...

  10. Safe High Voltage Cathode Materials for Pulsed Power Applications

    SBC: Scientic, Inc.            Topic: N11AT035

    A high-voltage, high-capacity, inexpensive cathode material for lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) is proposed. The cathode material employs carbon nanotubes and additional nanostructures to support efficient transport of Li ions. The resulting LIBs will support high transient and pulsed loads while offering enhanced safety and lifecycle performance. Proof-of-concept LIB cells were demonstrated in Phase ...
