  1. Virtual Accelerator Support for HPC Clouds

    SBC: RNET TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 02a

    Due to huge levels of computing parallelism and higher performance per watt, comuting accelerators are crucial for increasing HPC efficiency. This is economically significant for small and medium size manufacturing companies (SMMs) and essential for transition to Exascale computing. However, due to high procurement costs, in-house maintenance of an accelerated HPC cluster is prohibitive for many ...

  2. Variable Flux Machines for Hybrid Electric Vehicles

    SBC: Asymmetric Technologies LLC            Topic: 13b

    The majority of hybrid electric vehicles and electric vehicles (HEV/EV) products use interior permanent magnet (IPM) synchronous machines for traction purpose due to the efficiency and power density consideration. IPM machines use high energy density rare earth based magnet materials such as neodymium and dysprosium. Variable flux (VF) machines using abundant and cheaper soft magnets such as AlNiC ...

  3. Ultra Low-Power and Embeddable Blade-Condition Monitor

    SBC: Extreme Diagnostics, Inc.            Topic: 07c

    This SBIR/STTR project delivers an ultra-low power structural health monitoring (SHM) system that uses autonomous, wirelessly embedded sensors to monitor and assess structural integrity in wind turbine blades. EASE features impedance-based active SHM, which is highly sensitive to damage like cracks, delimitations, mass variations, fastener failures and stiffness changes. Blades are the only wind t ...

  4. Synthesis of a Potential Fast Ionic Conductor for Mg+ Ions

    SBC: Powdermet, Inc.            Topic: 15b

    Development of a solid with high conductivity of Mg2+ cations will allow application of that substance as membrane in magnesium-air batteries. These batteries will be much cheaper, safer, and at the same time store much more energy than lead-, lithium- or sodium batteries with the same weight. Such batteries would be ideal for electric vehicles and for the off-peak storage of renewable elect ...

  5. Scaleup of a Combined Spray Pyrolysis and Fluidized-bed Reactor Method for the Production of High Performing Layered Nickel- rich Cathode Materials as a Continuous Process

    SBC: HAZEN RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 14a

    To increase the utilization of electric vehicles, the US Department of Energy is seeking to reduce the cost of electric vehicle batteries to less than $125/kWh by 2022. To achieve this goal, the costs of cathode materials, which account for approximately 30% of the cost of vehicle batteries, must be reduced significantly. To address the challenge of lowering the costs of advanced lithium battery c ...

  6. Recovery Act- Scale-up of the Nanomanufacturing of Coated Powders for Superior Battery Electrode Materials

    SBC: ALD NANOSOLUTIONS, INC            Topic: 09b

    There is significant opportunity for energy efficiency improvements in the industrial and manufacturing sectors in the U.S., both from the production and consumption perspective. Higher energy density battery materials will play a role in both, through improved storage of electricity from renewable sources, the enabling of electric vehicles, and through the development of longer lasting, higher po ...

  7. Recovery Act- Novel Method for Dewatering Using Lateral Displacement Array

    SBC: Phycal LLC            Topic: 10c

    The cost of dewatering particles is inversely proportional to particle size. Costs dramatically increase as particle size approaches 10

  8. Recovery Act- Development of a Fiber Based Source of High Average Power Ultrafast Pulses at 2.0 Microns

    SBC: Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: 04d

    Bright coherent light sources in the soft x-ray region of the spectrum are useful for a variety of applications of interest to DOE in the basic sciences, nanoscience and biology, and for technological applications. At Free-Electron Laser Facilities, peak power output of the x-ray pulses is enhanced by using a mid-infrared laser pulse instead of a near-infrared pulse. The current front end for mid- ...

  9. REBCO Coated Conductor Cables for Fusion Magnets

    SBC: Advanced Conductor Technologies LLC            Topic: 22c

    The feasibility for fusion as a practical energy source needs to be enhanced significantly by removing some of the restrictions that low-temperature superconductors put on the fusion magnet systems. This can be done by using high-temperature superconductors, allowing for much larger temperature margins, a higher magnet performance and less mechanical degradation during operation. There are curren ...

  10. Programmable, Extensible and Secure System for Software-Defined Multi-Domain Performance Monitoring

    SBC: Samraksh Company, The            Topic: 01a

    Successful adoption of open frameworks such as perfSONAR in Science DMZs within DOE labs, universities, and small-businesses, and the emerging trends of software-defined cloud platforms that inherently require multi-domain performance transparency are major drivers for a new market. However, perfSONAR framework and other proprietary solutions developed by industry cannot be effectively integrated ...
