  1. A BAYESIAN DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEM

    SBC: Pickard, Lowe & Garrick Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE BAYESIAN DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEM (BDS) IS PROPOSED AS THE CENTRAL INFERENCE ENGINE OF AN ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE SYSTEM (EXPERT SYSTEM) FOR REACTOR PLANT CONTROL AND MAINTENANCE. THE EXPERT SYSTEM, COPILOT, IS ALREADY UNDER DEVELOPMENT AT PLG UNDER LIMITED IN-HOUSE FUNDING. THE EXISTING WORK INVOLVES DEVELOPMENT OF THE "DOMAIN KNOWLEDGE BASE" OF POWER PLANT SYSTEMS, PROCEDURES, AND ANALYSIS RESULTS ...

  2. Additive Manufactured RF Load for ITER

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: 24b

    High power RF loads are required to dissipate the power from gyrotrons used for heating fusion plasmas. The ITER facility, currently under construction in France, will require twenty four loads in its initial phase with and additional twenty four required for a future upgrade. High power RF loads are also required at other facilities under construction or planned. The current cost is very high due ...

  5. Advanced Low Cost Air Handling Units for Buildings

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: 09a

    Heating, Ventilating, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration applications consume more than half of the total energy used in domestic residential and commercial buildings, with Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning consuming approximately 40 percent (15.5 Quads) of total energy, in 2015. Air Handling Units that condition the air in homes and commercial buildings play an important role in these app ...

  6. A FIBER OPTIC, RAMAN CHEMICAL SENSOR

    SBC: Tacan Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE INVESTIGATION OF A FIBER-OPTIC CHEMICAL SENSOR THAT WILL PROVIDE LOCALIZED CHEMICAL ANALYSIS BY NONINTRUSIVE, OPTICAL METHODS IS PLANNED. THE PLANNED FIBER-OPTIC PROBE WILL HAVE THE ADDITIONAL ADVANTAGES OF PROVIDING A REAL-TIME RESPONSE; IT CAN BE USED IN HOSTILE (TEMPERATURE, PRESSURE, AND ELECTROMAGNETIC) ENVIRONMENTS AND FEATURES A REMOTE DISPLAY. MOLECULAR CONCENTRATIONS AT THE PARTS-PER- ...

  7. AGING PROCESSES IN NUCLEAR REACTORS

    SBC: Pdi Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    AS NUCLEAR PLANTS GROW OLDER, ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS MAY AFFECT THE PERFORMANCE OF PLANT CONCRETE AND STEEL STRUCTURES. WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP A STRATEGY WHICH CAN BE APPLIED TO CONCRETE STRUCTURES. IT WILL BE DIRECTED TOWARDSTHE DEVELOPMENT OF METHODS TO ANALYZE AND UNDERSTAND AGING EFFECTS, INCLUDING THE COMBINED EFFECTS OF TIME, TEMPERATURE, RADIATION, HUMIDITY, STRESS, CHEMICAL ENVIRONMENT AN ...

  8. Algae Photobioreactor for High-throughput, Low-cost Research and Development

    SBC: Microbio Engineering, Inc            Topic: 08c

    To advance a strong and economically viable biofuels and bioproducts industry, tools are needed for selecting and improving microalgae strains that exhibit higher productivities under conditions prevalent in the open pond environment. Conventional laboratory cultivation systems do not meet research needs, as they are either high-cost, but at low replication, or alternatively low up- front cost, at ...

  9. ALPHA-PARTICLE DIAGNOSTICS BY ION CYCLOTRON EMISSION (ICE)

    SBC: Jaycor, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE ALPHA PARTICLES IN A FUSION REACTOR ARE THE SOURCE OF FREE ENERGY WHICH SUSTAINS THE "BURNING" D-T PLASMA. THE ABILITY OF A MAGNETIC CONFINEMENT DEVICE TO CONTAIN THE ALPHA PARTICLES IN THE PLASMA DETERMINES CONDITIONS FOR IGNITION. MEASUREMENTS OF THE TIME HISTORY OF THE SPATIAL AND ENERGY DISTRIBUTIONS OF THE ALPHA PARTICLES IN THE PLASMA ARE REQUIRED FOR COMPARING THE THEORETICAL PREDICTION ...

    SBIR Phase II 1987 Department of Energy
  10. ALTERNATIVE SOURCE FOR METAL CHELATION COMPOUNDS

    SBC: Syntro Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS A NEED FOR CHEMICALS WITH A HIGH METAL BINDING CAPACITY WHICH ALSO ALLOWS FOR RECOVERY OF THE METALS IN A CONCENTRATED FORM. THIS CHEMICAL SHOULD PERMIT REPEATED RECYCLING, FUNCTION AT LOW METAL CONCENTRATIONS, AND BE COSTCOMPETITIVE WITH EXISTING RESINS. IDEALLY, THIS AGENT WOULDBE PRODUCED IN VOLUME BY INDUSTRIALLY CONTROLLED PROCESSES FROM INEXPENSIVE AND READILY AVAILABLE RAW MATERIAL ...
