  1. 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 ...

  2. A Blockchain-enabled Peer-to-Peer Energy Trading Platform for Managing Complex Exchange of Kilowatt-hours and Negawatts

    SBC: BEMCONTROLS, LLC            Topic: 12c

    The structure of the electric utility business has long been a centralized model where an electric utility is the only authority selling electricity to, and buying excess rooftop PV generation, from customers. This is changing as utilities explore new business models including Distributed System Operator (DSO) models. On the other side of the meter, with the increasing penetration of rooftop solar ...

  3. Nanoparticle Catalytic Discovery using Machine Learning Models with Chemisorption Inputs

    SBC: BIENA TECH LLC            Topic: 06a

    The mechanisms guiding nanocatalysis are poorly understood and extremely hard to model. Proposed effort attempts to provide a machine learning based platform that would guide the design of nanocatalytic materials for a variety of applications, beginning with the use of case of chloro-organic contaminant remediation. The current approaches either use conventional molecular dynamics coupled with ab ...

  4. Extreme Temperature Distributed Sensing in Modular Energy Systems

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: 17b

    Fossil Energy (FE)-based modular power systems are a growing market that can meet the demand of rural and isolated areas both domestically and abroad. Many of these systems, also known as Radically Engineered Modular System (REMS), provide power and/or heat for farms, homes, and other industrial processes. The concept is to produce syngas (synthetic natural gas) from coal and readily available bio ...

  5. Real-Time Distributed Quench Detection in High Temperature Superconductor Magnets

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: 20a

    Nuclear fusion has great potential for supplying global energy needs with a clean, abundant energy source. Advanced superconducting magnets will be used to contain the plasma at the center of the reactor. To operate these magnets, new sensors are needed to monitor the superconductors in real-time to detect the signs that the superconductor may quench (lose superconducting properties), so that corr ...

  6. Plug-In Hybrid Vehicle Optimization Using Vehicle-to-Cloud Connectivity

    SBC: Macchina, LLC            Topic: 13c

    Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) represent a growing segment of the U.S. passenger vehicle market. An increasing number of PHEV models are available to consumers. PHEVs are similar to parallel hybrid vehicles like the Toyota Prius in that they have an electric motor and internal combustion engine that are used synergistically to significantly reduce fuel consumption while maintaining a nea ...

  7. Low-Temperature Plasma Substrate-Free Production of Graphene from Natural Gas

    SBC: H Quest Vanguard Inc            Topic: 22b

    Graphene nanomaterials offers multiple technical benefits in printed electronics, structural materials, displays, capacitors, high-performance computing applications, and especially energy storage where researchers have reported a five-fold increase in the charge rate of a graphene- enhanced Li-ion battery. Historically, industrial production of graphene nanomaterials has been hindered by the need ...

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

    SBC: ThirdLaw Technologies LLC            Topic: 06a

    The discovery of advanced materials and molecules is difficult and largely an experimental endeavor. Computers are used to simulate materials and molecules but rarely to design them. We aim to demonstrate that novel materials and molecules can be computationally “evolved” using Genetic Programming, and we will develop: (1) Atomically precise membranes that would separate molecules at a fractio ...

  9. Additive Manufacturing of Scalable 3D Resonators

    SBC: GLOBAL RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT INC            Topic: 29b

    This proposal is submitted in response to the SBIR/STTR Office of Science related to Quantum Information Science (QIS) Supporting Technologies. There is the need for fabrication techniques for scalable 3D Superconducting Radio Frequency (SRF) Structures for Quantum Information Systems. In this proposal we will develop an additive manufacturing approach to developing superconducting 3D microwave re ...

  10. Development of Burst-mode Laser based High-speed Microwave and Thomson Scattering Instruments for Fusion Plasma Devices

    SBC: SPECTRAL ENERGIES LLC            Topic: 21a

    Fusion plasma devices at various DOE and international facilities need high-speed diagnostic tools to understand, predict, and control fusion plasmas. Thomson scattering (TS) at tens of Hz has routinely measured electron temperature (Te) and electron number density (ne) inside the plasma system. However, at these data rates traditional TS can obtain only a sparse data set, which significantly limi ...
