  1. 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 ...

  2. Fidelity Enhancement of Nuclear Power Plant Simulators Utilizing High Fidelity Simulation Predictions


    Accurate simulation of nuclear power plant behavior is necessary for both engineering and training applications. An engineering grade simulator, used for design, safety analysis and operations, is characterized by high fidelity, computational power, lack of real-time capability, and user non-interactive environment. By contrast, a training grade simulator, used for operator training and education, ...

  4. Ultra High-Temperature Magnetic Bearing System for S-CO2 Turbines/Expanders

    SBC: Electron Energy Corporation            Topic: 30f

    High performance supercritical carbon dioxide (S-CO2) turbo-expanders/power turbines will provide significant increases in efficiency and compactness, while reducing greenhouse gases and water usage. This project will develop a permanent magnet biased magnetic bearing system, that is actively cooled to the 550°C maximum operating temperature limit of permanent magnets. The magnetic bearing test e ...

  5. Integrated Membrane Reactor for Enhancing Thermal & Chemical Reactors

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 06c

    With development of shale gas fracking, large amounts of methane and ethane have now become available at low cost. With this low cost ethane it is desirable to convert low cost ethane to high value ethylene. Oxidative dehydrogenation (ODH) for low cost conversion of ethane to ethylene is a potentially attractive route. ODH is an exothermic process for converting ethane to ethylene. By contrast pro ...

  6. Low Cost Alloys for Magnetocaloric Refrigeration

    SBC: GENERAL ENGINEERING & RESEARCH, L.L.C.            Topic: 12b

    Replacement of petroleum based vehicles with fuel cell electric vehicles operating on hydrogen produced from domestically available resources would dramatically decrease emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants as well as reduce dependence on oil from politically volatile regions of the world. One major inhibitor to a hydrogen society is the lack of infrastructure, which requires hydroge ...

  7. Development of Production Strains of Chlamydomonas using Breeding Technologies

    SBC: GLOBAL ALGAE INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: 08c

    In order to make large scale commercial production of microalgae based commodity food and fuel products, significant strides in algal productivity need to be achieved. With current regulatory guidelines, large scale outdoor cultivation of microalgae for these products restricts the use of transgenic algal strains, which in the laboratory thus far have been the primary strategy taken to effectively ...

  8. High Performance Substrate Embedded Microgrids for High Efficiency, Flexible Organic Light Emitting Diodes

    SBC: Electroninks Incorporated            Topic: 09b

    Indium tin oxide (ITO) films are currently the most widely used transparent conductor in optoelectronic applications. However, ITO suffers from several major technological and economic limitations for large area applications such as inadequate performance, high cost, and brittleness. The primary objective of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I/Phase II project is to develop the ...

  10. Development of Intelligent Systems for Macromolecular Catalysts, Atomically Precise Membranes and Therapeutics

    SBC: ThirdLaw LLC            Topic: 06a

    The state of computational chemistry software is in fragmented. Excellent and trusted academic software, which contains advanced molecular simulation code, exists but is seldom used in industry. Industrial software is closed, expensive and has not proven to be as good a foundation as academic software for developing advanced methods where machine learning can be used to design new molecules and ma ...
