Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 01A-2014
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

The amount of renewable energy installations is expected to grow substantially during the foreseeable future. Renewable energy harvested from PV, wind or hydrokinetic sources is intermittent and the most energy is not generally produced when the consumers need it most. Grid-tied storage can help to solve both of these problems. Stored energy can...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 19 A-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

Ocean and hydropower generators face unique problems transmitting power to shore and integrating with the electric grid. As grid

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-130
Budget: 01/21/09 - 01/20/11

In Phase II, we will deliver a 50 kW, 50 kHz, medium voltage AC to 700 VDC power converter using a high-frequency, low-leakage inductance internal transformer and 6 kV silicon carbide (SiC) gate-turn-off thyristors (GTOs) to demonstrate these technologies and how they solve the technical risks. The high power density (2-3 MW/m^3) and high effici...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

Ocean and hydropower generators face unique problems with respect to the transmission of power to shore and integration with the electric grid. The evolution of grid-integration standards usually requires the need for power electronics, which face unique form-factor and environment challenges in undersea applications. There is a need for advan...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-130
Budget: 12/11/07 - 12/19/08

We will design, develop, and deliver a 4160 V, 100 kW converter with a power density of 3 MW/m3,through the integration of silicon carbide (SiC) thyristor devices operating in an AC-link topology. Unlike other state-of-the-art converters, AC-link can use thyristor devices and, therefore, avoid the reliability problems with the SiC oxide layer f...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 07-1
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

Princeton Power will develop and deliver three small, lightweight 50 W high-voltage power supplies that have a configurable output voltage range from 500 to 50 kVDC. The baseline 1 kV design will have 85% efficiency, operate from a 20-30 VDC supply, occupy 108 mL (460W/liter), and weigh 200 g. The design will use an innovative resonant DC-DC boo...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2007
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

The unpredictability of wind power generation prevents utilities from dispatching wind energy to meet demand requirements and also prevents wind energy from being generated during peak demand periods when it is most valuable. There is a need for an integrated wind turbine controller and energy storage system that is dispatchable by the utility,...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD04-EP5
Budget: 12/02/04 - 12/02/05

In Phase I, we propose to design a 300kW DC-DC converter for hybrid vehicles that operates at 92% efficiency, with 100°C coolant inlet temperature, and fits within 50L (6kW/L). Transitioning to the use of Silicon Carbide switching technology when it becomes available should allow increases in power density to 8kW/L. Our unique innovation is usin...
