  1. Next Generation Portable Power Amplifier


    MaXentric proposes the GAU2x2 wideband power amplifier system. The design combines MaXentrics wideband RF PA technology with advanced digital signal processing in a single small footprint package. This tight integration is made possible through the extremely high efficiency and low power dissipation. Since very little power is dissipated as heat, the package and heat sink size can be minimized. In ...

  3. Collaborative VR/AR Data Visualization Tool

    SBC: Woodruff Scientific, Inc.            Topic: 21c

    Computational physicists and diagnosticians need to analyze 3D data to gain understanding of their simulations or diagnostic results.Visualizing 3D Physics effects by use of 2D screens can limit understanding or even create misunderstandings.Communication of results between collaborators can be difficult when using 2D images or movies, sent by email with written explanations: one finds oneself rep ...

  4. P2P Transactions with Demand Flexibility for Increasing Solar Utilization

    SBC: Qcoefficient Inc            Topic: 12c

    As installations of solar photovoltaics continue to soar, addressing the integration challenges that arise from high penetrations of solar will be paramount to achieving the SunShot Initiative 2030 goals of $0.03/kWh to $0.05/kWh levelized cost of electricity (LCOE). Specific challenges related to system ramping and over-generation tend to degrade the value of PV, and solutions are needed to addre ...

  5. HYPERTUNNEL- A MR/VR Remote Collaboration System

    SBC: FactualVR, Inc.            Topic: 05a

    An important challenge electric utilities will face in the foreseeable future is a workforce that is rapidly retiring and the resulting loss of institutional knowledge.This will also create a vulnerability in the electric grid, especially during widespread power outages where recovery efforts rely on a team of well-trained and experienced personnel.Disasters like Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico hig ...

  7. General Techniques for Increasing Packing Density of Metal-Organic Frameworks for Enhanced Volumetric Storage of Hydrogen

    SBC: NuMat Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 17c

    Current hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) on the market rely on high-pressure hydrogen, 700 bar, storage systems to store and deliver hydrogen for use in the fuel cell. Bringing hydrogen to high pressures and storing hydrogen at high-pressure requires sophisticated compressors and specialized carbon wrapped tanks, respectively. This high-pressure constraint makes FCEVs vehicles challeng ...

  9. 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, including nuclear power systems.For example, thermal stratification in a sodium-cooled fast reactor under natural circulation conditions is resolvable with computational fluid dynamics, but not traditional system-level models.To offset the high cost of computational fluid dynamics, methods pro ...

  10. Conversion of CO2 to Alkyl Carbonates using Ethylene Oxide as Feedstock

    SBC: E3TECSERVICE, LLC            Topic: 15c

    The challenges associated with CO2 capture, transport and storage have been well documented. Therefore, all possible options must be pursued for abatement of global CO2 emissions including CO2-based products. A new generation of CO2-capture technologies being developed with federally funded projects could show market-driven adoption if CO2 were used to manufacture competitively value-added product ...
