Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N091-050
Budget: 07/14/09 - 01/25/10

A novel combination of power electronics and electromechanical contactors is proposed to perform of sensing and fault protection in a Medium Voltage DC distribution system. This will reduce the electromechanical component ratings and size while providing both input to output galvanic isolation during operation and mechanical contact isolation an...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB082-011
Budget: 06/11/09 - 02/18/10

Fuel Cell and hybrid electric propulsion offers increased architectural flexibility to air vehicles. The power plant of choice for helicopters is a gas turbine engine due to its high power density. However, the large transmission can weigh more than the engine. A motor-generator pair can eliminate high maintenance components in the drive trai...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N02-174
Budget: 03/03/09 - 03/03/11

Satcon proposes to fabricate and test an advanced technology power generation and distribution system for underwater power systems with an initial focus on torpedo applications. We will leverage our experience in Naval power distribution converters, generators, and active ONR propulsion programs as a baseline design. Key attributes of the power ...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Purdue University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-T026
Budget: 09/30/08 - 12/30/09

SatCon proposes to fabricate and test an advanced technology electric drive for improved power density and quiet operation for underwater propulsion systems with an initial focus on torpedo applications. We will leverage our experience in SiC applications, NUWC propulsors, and active ONR podded propulsor program as a baseline design, and couple ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N08-181
Budget: 09/18/08 - 01/16/10
PI: Jim Munro

The proposed shipboard medium voltage AC to DC converter system will allow for various input and output levels based on a power dense, efficient, low cost, high quality output, and modular design expandable up to 6MW. A 450kW power conversion module uses advanced power switching devices and a uniquely designed isolation transformer. The 13.8kV...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF081-058
Budget: 04/30/08 - 01/30/09

A transition from a centralized, hydraulically based power source to a multi-source electric power base is eliciting a need for an electrically powered aircraft. This electrical power base will be composed on multiple, independently operated electric units, working together to power the craft. A premeditated obstacle to this innovative approach...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N06-142
Budget: 03/19/08 - 08/31/11

The application of reliable, long life electrical machinery in the All Electric Navy is critical for the success of future naval warfare. Development of a Pulse Width Modulated (PWM) inverter fed Permanent Magnet (PM) motor for the DD(X) shipboard propulsion illustrates future trends for large 20 MW, 2000 V, PWM Machines of 310 Tons. Challeng...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-T008
Budget: 07/23/07 - 05/23/08

There is a critical need for reliable, long life, low maintenance machinery for all DoD components, and underway aircraft carriers ops are among the most demanding, especially the 24/7 all-weather operations on the flight deck. The present C13 Aircraft Steam Catapult (ASC), with their water brake systems for deceleration of the catapult after ...

Phase 1 STTR

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-178
Budget: 04/17/07 - 08/17/09

Building on the feasibility determination made in Phase 1 SatCon will demonstrate an application of prognostic control techniques for switching power converters utilizing emerging Silicon Carbide (SiC) power devices, while using predictive modeling. Silicon Carbide is an emerging technology, that promises dramatic enhancements in size, weight, ...
