  1. Recovery Act- Web-Based Diagnostic Tools for Online Monitoring of Photovoltaic Systems

    SBC: Wattminder            Topic: 07c

    Despite significant advancement in PV technology and efficiency, qualification testing and market penetration, actual performance in the field of operation under a myriad of environemental constraints remains an important topic. PV arrays are subject to degradation mechanisms that can significantly impact power production capability. For revenue-critical PV arrays, detection of underperformance an ...

  2. Recovery Act- The Lean Green Energy Controller Machine-A clustered Smart Controller for the Household Market

    SBC: PEOPLE POWER COMPANY            Topic: 07a

    Achieving efficiency improvements and providing demand-response programs have been identified as key elements of our national energy initiative. The residential market is the largest, yet most difficult, segment to engage in efforts to meet these objectives. This project will develop an Energy Management System that engages the consumer and enables Smart Grid services, applications, and business p ...

  4. Recovery Act- Nanoscale Probe System for Organic Photovoltaics

    SBC: Asylum Research Corporation            Topic: 08d

    There currently is no effective, commercially available system for probing and testing organic photovoltaic materials (OPVs) and cells at the micro- and nanoscales. Such a probe system is critically needed to enable researchers to quickly and efficiently evaluate organic blends, characterize mixing/phase separation, and help scale up manufacturing methodologies for next generation organic and hybr ...

  5. Recovery Act- A Solar-Assisted Seawater Desalination System

    SBC: NRGTEK, INC.            Topic: 02c

    Desalination is one technology that can increase world-wide water resources with seawater and brackish water treatment, if the energy requirements of conventional desalination are reduced by use of innovative desalination processes and the use of solar power and heat. DOE also has an urgent focus on developing improved methods for water treatment, to environmentally acceptable standards, of

  6. Radiation Hard GaAs Photomultiplier Chip(TM)

    SBC: Lightspin Technologies Inc            Topic: 35a

    Some of the specialized detectors used in high energy physics experiments are bombarded by the highest energy particles on earth (other than cosmic rays that occur singly rather than in a bunch)

  7. Production of Phenol Formaldehyde Resins from Recycled Composite Materials

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The recycling of thermoset composite materials produces valuable fibers and a liquid hydrocarbon byproduct. The liquid hydrocarbons constitute a potential hazardous wastestream that could prevent the recycling process from being adopted on a large scale by government and industrial users. This project addresses the conversion of these liquid hydrocarbons into useful products. Phase I showed tha ...

  8. Low-Temperature Composite Recycling Process

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    60770 Recycling of carbon fiber reinforced composites is an important task for the future development of this class of materials. Without recycling, the full potential of using composite materials in low-cost applications like automobile production, along with the resulting fuel economy, will not be realized. Recycling the composites will also have a huge ecological benefit by removing a w ...

  9. Enhanced, Three-Dimensional, Multicomponent Seismic Imaging for Lithology and Fluid Characterization

    SBC: 4th Wave Imaging Corporation            Topic: N/A

    60143 Multicomponent shear-wave seismic data reveal information about subsurface lithologies and fluid properties that is difficult or impossible to obtain with compressional-wave data alone. Although commercially available three-dimensional (3D), multicomponent simulations handle many aspects of the 3D behavior of shear waves in complex media, there are serious gaps. In particular, step ...

  10. Direct Lamination Cooling of Motors for Electric Vehicles

    SBC: AEROVIRONMENT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    60765 Current designs for electric motors use a housing that acts as both a structural support and as a method of cooling the stator and rotor. This approach to cooling is not as effective as possible because heat must flow from the rotor and stator through the housing to the cooling media. Because the housing must contain the coolant, it is also larger, heavier, and more expensive than n ...
