  2. 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 ...

  3. Modular Thermal Management System for Electronics Enclosures

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: N16AT014

    The heat load from Navy combat system electronics housed in Mission Critical Enclosures (MCEs) continues to increase. During Phase I, Mainstream designed and demonstrated a modular, scalable thermal management system (TMS) for existing and future MCE cabinets with triple the cooling capacity of the legacy TMS. In Phase II, Mainstream will transition the TMS to the Navy for retrofit and next-genera ...

  5. Quantifying Uncertainty in the Mechanical Performance of Additively Manufactured Parts Due to Material and Process Variation

    SBC: MRL MATERIALS RESOURCES LLC            Topic: N16AT004

    Additive manufacturing is an extremely customizable process; however, variations in the chosen build parameters can lead to drastic differences in part performance. The performance variation due to process parameters is still not well understood, and propagating all uncertainties from the various sources has been a challenge. Sources of AM parts’ performance variability include uncertainties in ...

  6. Optimized High Performance Stainless Steel Powder for Selective Laser Melting Additive Manufacturing (AM)

    SBC: Shepra, Inc.            Topic: N16AT007

    Stainless steel is a vital component of many air, land and sea systems that support the Navy warfighter. In particular, 17-4 precipitation hardened stainless steel, (17-4 PH SS) with its extrodinary combination of strength, ductility, high temperature performance and corrosion resistance plays an important role in supporting the warfighter. When processed conventionally, 17-4 PH SS typical exhibit ...

  8. Phase-Change Materials for Tunable Infrared Devices

    SBC: Plasmonics Inc.            Topic: N17AT020

    There is a critical need for the development of dynamic IR materials that can be used to form device level components and systems necessary for mid to long wave infrared (3-12 µm) applications. To meet these future needs, the team proposes to develop tunable optical elements based around metamaterial surfaces or metasurfaces. Metasurfaces are a class of engineered materials where arrays of sub-wa ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
