Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Agency: Navy
Topic: N06-T003
Budget: 08/01/06 - 05/31/07

The goal of this project is to develop a torque-dense geared motor for actuating flaps of an aircraft. We propose to increase the torque density by using a novel configuration which seamlessly integrates a torque-dense motor with a torque-dense gear train. Such arrangement produce more torque in a smaller space as it fully utilizes the availabl...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD04-EP1
Budget: 12/09/04 - 06/13/05

The goal of this project is to develop Power-Dense Passives that can increase the Power Density to 25 kW/liter and facilitate operation at high ambient temperature of up to 150 C. The passives will consist of a core, winding and built-in advanced cooling system. Existing inductor and transformer configurations will be reviewed and a trade study ...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Dartmouth College

Agency: Navy
Topic: N03-T007
Budget: 06/04/04 - 12/04/05

The goal of this project is to develop and demonstrate a Nano-Inductor of high power density. The Nano-inductor will use recently developed nano-tape materials. These materials offer very low core-loss and hence yield a more efficient inductor that is more compact and light weight. In Phase I we designed an air-cooled nano-inductor and dete...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Dartmouth College

Agency: Navy
Topic: N03-T007
Budget: 07/01/03 - 04/30/04

The goal of this project is to establish the feasibility of Liquid Cooled Inductors (LCI) of high Power Density. To accomplish this, Premag has teamed with a system builder to develop a prototypical inductor design. The LCI will be designed to reduce the weight of inductors in a prototypical Navy power converter. The LCI will consist of high-...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A00-084
Budget: 03/25/03 - 03/25/05

We propose to develop a Silicon Carbide Inverter that can drive typical fan, pump or other motors of Future Combat System Vehicles. It will use recently developed SiC switches as well as SiC diodes. Under this project we will (i) develop the design configuration of the SiC Inverter, (ii) procure SiC devices needed by the All-SiC Inverter, (iii)...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A00-084
Budget: 04/16/01 - 10/16/01

We propose to develop an Inverter Test Facility to evaluate the performance of Silicon vs. Silicon Carbide power devices. In Phase-I, we will use this Test Facility to measure the performance of a baseline Silicon-based 5 HP inverter; in Phase-II, we will use this data as bench mark to evaluate the superiority of Silicon Carbide devices. The i...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 98-1
Budget: 01/01/98 - 12/31/98
PI: Unavailable

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 1998
Budget: 01/01/98 - 12/31/98

50055-98-I

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF96-073
Budget: 02/25/97 - 05/25/99

Ball bearings that suspend a reaction wheel are increasingly becoming a limiting factor for the mission-cricital pointing accuracy of spacecraft because their contacting nature transmits parasitic disturbances from the wheel to the spacecraft. To combat this parasitic disturbance transmission, in the Phase I effort we have successfully developed...
