Producing hydrogen using nuclear energy  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The earliest means of separating hydrogen from water was by electrolysis using electrical energy that usually had been produced by low-efficiency thermodynamic processes. Substitution of thermal energy for electrical energy in high-temperature electrolysis gives a somewhat higher overall efficiency, but significantly complicates the process. Today, the vast majority of hydrogen is produced by steam methane reforming (SMR) followed by a water-shift reaction. A well-designed SMR plant will yield hydrogen having 75??80% of the energy of the methane used. Recent work in Japan has demonstrated the feasibility of substituting high-temperature heat from a gas-cooled nuclear reactor to replace the heat supplied in SMR by the combustion of methane. Using high-temperature heat from nuclear plants to drive thermochemical processes for producing hydrogen has been studied extensively. Bench-scale tests have been carried out in Japan demonstrating the sulphur-iodine (SI) process to produce hydrogen.

Support of EOR to independent producers in Texas. [Quarterly report], January 30, 1995--April 30, 1995  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The general objective is to assist independent producers in Texas in applying tertiary recovery technology to their oil fields. The more specific objectives are: (1) identify production problems, and present technology to overcome such problems, (2) train independent producers how to select suitable EOR techniques and implement them, (3) conduct seminars and workshops on various EDR techniques and their applications, (4) train independent producers how to use available software in the fields of EDR operations, financing, and workover jobs, (5) establish a technology transfer center to lend primarily the independent producers in Texas the needed assistance to understand and use the state of the art technology data base in their operations. The first advisory committee meeting was conducted on April 18th, 1995, at Prairie View A&M University (Compaq Computer Corporation Facilities). Discussions were focused on the project objectives, and what would be the best approach to accomplish our goals, (see attachment {number_sign}1). Following several contacts and discussions, it was agreed to join hands and efforts to benefit the independent producers in Texas. In addition, the Petroleum Industry Alliance (PIA) in Midland will help our efforts at Prairie View A&M University in mobilizing the Permian Basin area producers of a sizable Department of Energy initiative suited for their needs. A short course ``workshop`` for the Texas independent produces Horizontal Drilling Technology was designed to assist them in obtaining the financing and technology for their projects. The topics covered in this eight-hour course at Prairie View A&M University, Graduate Instruction Center is given in attachment{number_sign}2.

Quasi-energy-independent solar neutrino transitions  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Current solar, atmospheric, and reactor neutrino data still allow oscillation scenarios where the squared mass differences are all close to 10^-3 eV^2, rather than being hierarchically separated. For solar neutrinos, this situation (realized in the upper part of the so-called large-mixing angle solution) implies adiabatic transitions which depend weakly on the neutrino energy and on the matter density, as well as on the ``atmospheric'' squared mass difference. In such a regime of ``quasi-energy-independent'' (QEI) transitions, intermediate between the more familiar ``Mikheyev-Smirnov-Wolfenstein'' (MSW) and energy-independent (EI) regimes, we first perform analytical calculations of the solar nu_e survival probability at first order in the matter density, beyond the usual hierarchical approximations. We then provide accurate, generalized expressions for the solar neutrino mixing angles in matter, which reduce to those valid in the MSW, QEI and EI regimes in appropriate limits. Finally, a representative QEI scenario is discussed in some detail.

TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER TO U.S. INDEPENDENT OIL AND NATURAL GAS PRODUCERS  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The Petroleum Technology Transfer Council (PTTC) continued pursuing its mission of helping U.S. independent oil and natural gas producers make timely, informed technology decisions. PTTC's Board made a strategic decision to relocate the Headquarters (HQ) office from Washington, DC to Houston, Texas. Driving force behind relocation was to better connect with independent producers, but cost savings could also be realized. Relocation was accomplished in late December 2000, with the HQ office being fully operational by January 2001. Early indications are that the HQ relocation is, in fact, enabling better networking with senior executives of independents in the Houston oil community. New Board leadership, elected in March 2001, will continue to effectively guide PTTC.

Support of EOR to independent producers in Texas. Quarterly report, April 1995--June 1995  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Extensive research has been conducted nationwide since the early 1970`s to increase our domestic oil production via Enhanced oil Recovery (EOR) technology. Less effort has been made to assure that state-of-the-art EOR technology reaches all producers, especially independents, so they can understand and use it to their benefit. Further, very little effort has been made to make EOR research results useful to the broadest possible base of producers. This report presents information on horizontal drilling and oil well planning including drilling tools, bottomhole assembly tools, drilling equipment, and well completion. A glossary of applicable terms and diagrams are included.

The Petroleum Technology Transfer Council (PTTC) continued pursuing its mission of helping U.S. independent oil and gas producers make timely, informed technology decisions during Fiscal Year 2000 (FY00). Functioning as a cohesive national organization, PTTC has active grassroots programs through its ten Regional Lead Organizations (RLOs) who bring research and academia to the table via their association with geological surveys and engineering departments. The regional directors connect with independent oil and gas producers through technology workshops, resource centers, websites, newsletters, various technical publications and other outreach efforts. These are guided by regional Producer Advisory Groups (PAGs), who are area operators and service companies working with the Regional Lead Organizations. The role of the national headquarters (HQ) staff includes planning and managing the PTTC program, conducting nation-wide technology transfer activities, and implementing a comprehensive communications effort. The organization effectively combines federal, state, and industry funding to achieve important goals for all of these sectors. This integrated funding base, combined with industry volunteers guiding PTTC's activities and the dedication of national and regional staff, are achieving notable results. PTTC is increasingly recognized as a critical resource for information and access to technologies, especially for smaller companies. This technical progress report summarizes PTTC's accomplishments during FY00, which lays the groundwork for further growth in the future. At a time of many industry changes and market movements, the organization has built a reputation and expectation to address industry needs of getting information distributed quickly which can impact the bottom line immediately.

Constraints on Energy Independent Solutions of the Solar Neutrino Problem  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We analyze the latest published solar neutrino data assuming an arbitrary neutrino oscillation/conversion mechanism suppresses the electron neutrino flux from the Sun independent of energy. For oscillations/transitions into active (sterile) neutrinos such mechanisms are ruled out at 99.96 (99.9997) % C.L. assuming the standard solar model by Bahcall and Pinnsoneault '95 correctly predicts all solar neutrino fluxes within their estimated uncertainties. Even if one allows for $^8{\\rm B}$ and $^7{\\rm Be}$ solar neutrino fluxes that are vastly different from the ones in contemporary standard solar models these mechanisms are strongly disfavored by the data.

"What's New with Independent Verification at Department of Energy Sites"  

Broader source: Energy.gov [DOE]

"What's New with Independent Verification at Department of Energy Sites" Sarah Roberts*, Oak Ridge Associated Universities ; Edward Regnier, U.S. Department of Energy; Tim Vitkus, Oak Ridge Associated Universities; Alexander Williams, U.S. Department of Energy Abstract: Recent rulemaking by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has formalized the requirements for independent verification (IV) of both real and personal property at DOE and National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) sites. DOE Order 458.1, Radiation Protection of the Public and the Environment, provides a more detailed framework for radiological clearance and IV than its predecessor DOE Order 5400.5, and emphasizes application of the graded approach for property clearance. The Order also incorporates recommendations for property release methodologies including the well-known Multi-Agency Radiation Survey and Site Investigation Manual (MARSSIM) and the more recently issued guidance document for the release of materials and equipment (the Multi-Agency Radiation Survey and Assessments of Materials and Equipment Manual or MARSAME). The new Order has resulted in many discussions related to the application of requirements at both the headquarters and field site levels. This is not completely unexpected given that one of the major objectives of the document, to allow for a graded approach, allows for flexibility in application. There are trends in lessons learned that should be considered when evaluating the applicability of IV requirements in the Order. Some of those lessons learned include the reduction of overall project risk by early engagement of IV personnel (prior to commencement of the final status surveys), consideration of verification requirements prior to backfilling excavated (remediated) areas, and interpretation of the gray area for what constitutes a graded approach.

Storing the Electric Energy Produced by an AC Generator  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Producing energy from renewable energy sources is nowadays a priority in our society. In many cases this energy comes as electric energy and when we think about electric energygenerators one major issue is how we can store that energy. In this paper we discuss how this can be done and give some ideas for applications that can serve as a motivation for projects with students.

The particles and flow into a second chamber, which is maintained at a lower pressure than the first chamber, and then moves into a third chamber including multipole guides for electromagnetically confining the particle. The vertical momentum of the particles descending through the center of the third chamber is minimized as an upward stream of gases reduces the downward momentum of the particles. The translational kinetic energy of the particles is near-zero irrespective of the mass of the particles at an exit opening of the third chamber, which may be advantageously employed to provide enhanced mass resolution in mass spectrometry.

Gauge-independent transverse and longitudinal self-energies and vertices via the pinch technique  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In the context of the standard model we show how to apply the pinch technique to four-fermion amplitudes with nonconserved external charged currents, in order to construct to one-loop order gauge-independent self-energies and vertices. We discuss the technical difficulties arising due to the presence of longitudinal contributions from the W and Goldstone boson (?) propagators, and derive gauge-independent WW, ?W, and ?? effective self-energies and vertices. The quantities so constructed satisfy a set of Ward identities, whose validity enforces the gauge invariance of the physical amplitude considered; their derivation does not require knowledge of the explicit closed form of the gauge-independent self-energies and vertices. Use of these Ward identities enables the decomposition of the amplitude in manifestly gauge-independent transverse and longitudinal structures with distinct kinematic properties. Explicit one-loop calculations are carried out, and several applications of the results are briefly discussed.

Simulation of neutrons produced by high-energy muons underground  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This article describes the Monte Carlo simulation used to interpret the measurement of the muon-induced neutron flux in the Boulby Underground Laboratory (North Yorkshire, UK), recently performed using a large scintillator veto deployed around the ZEPLIN-II WIMP detector. Version 8.2 of the GEANT4 toolkit was used after relevant benchmarking and validation of neutron production models. In the direct comparison between Monte Carlo and experimental data, we find that the simulation produces a 1.8 times higher neutron rate, which we interpret as over-production in lead by GEANT4. The dominance of this material in neutron production allows us to estimate the absolute neutron yield in lead as (1.310.06)10?3neutrons/muon/(g/cm2) for a mean muon energy of 260GeV. Simulated nuclear recoils due to muon-induced neutrons in the ZEPLIN-II target volume (?1-year exposure) showed that, although a small rate of events is expected from this source of background in the energy range of interest for dark matter searches, no event survives an anti-coincidence cut with the veto.

Cosmological model-independent Gamma-ray bursts calibration and its cosmological constraint to dark energy  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

As so far, the redshift of Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) can extend to z ? 8 which makes it as a complementary probe of dark energy to supernova Ia (SN Ia). However, the calibration of GRBs is still a big challenge when they are used to constrain cosmological models. Though, the absolute magnitude of GRBs is still unknown, the slopes of GRBs correlations can be used as a useful constraint to dark energy in a completely cosmological model independent way. In this paper, we follow Wang's model-independent distance measurement method and calculate their values by using 109 GRBs events via the so-called Amati relation. Then, we use the obtained model-independent distances to constrain ?CDM model as an example.

Reducing computational effort in the calculation of annual energy produced in wind farms  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Metaheuristic methods are commonly used in the optimization of wind farms by means of turbine micro-siting. The typical pattern search used by these methods to explore the solution space makes it necessary to repeatedly evaluate the objective function (and hence the annual energy produced by the wind plant under optimization) a large number of times. For each case, before evaluating energy production, it is necessary to calculate the wind speed deficit at the position of each turbine due to the wake effect: a very time-consuming task. This paper presents a set of algorithms and ideas to reduce the computational time spent on the calculation of the wakes, and therefore in assessing the annual energy production of a wind farm. The improvements proposed here can be applied to any wind turbine layout, but in the case of rhomboidal-type arrangements of turbines, their regularity leads to the achievement of much greater reductions in the computation effort. Furthermore, for this case, the computer time results almost independent of the number of turbines. These improvements have been successfully applied to a set of cases, and show that the computation time for the calculation of the yearly energy production of a wind farm with 100 turbines can be reduced between 300 and more than 20,000times, by using the most efficient of the strategies proposed.

Provisions in EISA2007 that require funding appropriations to be implemented, whose impact is highly uncertain, or that require further specification by federal agencies or Congress are not included in Annual Energy Outlook 2008 (AEO). For example, the Energy Information Administration (EIA) does not try to anticipate policy responses to the many studies required by EISA2007, nor to predict the impact of research and development (R&D) funding authorizations included in the bill. Moreover, AEO2008 does not include any provision that addresses a level of detail beyond that modeled in the National Energy Modeling System (NEMS), which was used to develop the AEO2008 projections. AEO2008 addresses only those provisions in EISA2007 that establish specific tax credits, incentives, or standards.

Constraints on the Physical Parameters of the Dark Energy Using a Model-Independent Approach  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Understanding the physical nature of the dark energy which appears to drive the accelerated expansion of the unvierse is one of the key problems in physics and cosmology today. This important problem is best studied using a variety of mutually complementary approaches. Daly and Djorgovski (2003, 2004) proposed a model independent approach to determine a number of important physical parameters of the dark energy as functions of redshift directly from the data. Here, we expand this method to include the determinations of its potential and kinetic energy as functions of redshift. We show that the dark energy potential and kinetic energy may be written as combinations of the first and second derivatives of the coordinate distance with respect to redshift. We expand the data set to include new supernova measurements, and now use a total of 248 coordinate distances that span the redshift range from zero to 1.79. First and second derivatives of the coordinate distance are obtained as functions of redshift, and these are combined to determine the potential and kinetic energy of the dark energy as functions of redshift. An update on the redshift behavior of the dimensionless expansion rate E(z), the acceleration rate q(z), and the dark energy pressure p(z), energy density f(z), and equation of state w(z) is also presented. We find that the standard Omega = 0.3 and Lambda = 0.7 model is in an excellent agreement with the data. We also show tentative evidence that the Cardassian and Chaplygin gas models in a spatially flat universe do not fit the data as well.

Minimizing Wind Power Producer's Balancing Costs Using Electrochemical Energy Storage: Preprint  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This paper examines how electrochemical energy storage can be used to decrease the balancing costs of a wind power producer in the Nordic market. Because electrochemical energy storage is developing in both technological and financial terms, a sensitivity analysis was carried out for the most important variables in the wind-storage hybrid system. The system was studied from a wind power producer's point of view. The main result is that there are no technical limitations to using storage for reducing the balancing costs. However, in terms of economic feasibility, installing hybrid wind-storage systems such as the one studied in this paper faces challenges in both the short and long terms.

Instantaneous x-ray radiation energy from laser produced polystyrene plasmas for shock ignition conditions  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Laser target energy coupling mechanism is crucial in the shock ignition (SI) scheme, and x-ray radiation energy is a non-negligible portion of the laser produced plasma energy. To evaluate the x-ray radiation energy amount at conditions relevant to SI scheme, instantaneous x-ray radiation energy is investigated experimentally with continuum phase plates smoothed lasers irradiating layer polystyrene targets. Comparative laser pulses without and with shock spike are employed. With the measured x-ray angular distribution, full space x-ray radiation energy and conversion efficiency are observed. Instantaneous scaling law of x-ray conversion efficiency is obtained as a function of laser intensity and time. It should be pointed out that the scaling law is available for any laser pulse shape and intensity, with which irradiates polystyrene planar target with intensity from 2 10{sup 14} to 1.8 10{sup 15} W/cm{sup 2}. Numerical analysis of the laser energy transformation is performed, and the simulation results agree with the experimental data.

Recently proposed exchange energy functional for excited-states is tested for obtaining excitation energies of diatomic molecules. The functional is the ground-state counterpart of the local-density approximation, the modified local spin density (MLSD). The MLSD functional is tested for the N{sub 2} and CO diatomic molecules. The excitation energy obtained with the MLSD functional for the N{sub 2} molecule is in close vicinity to that obtained from the exact exchange orbital functional, Krieger, Li and Iafrate (KLI). For the CO molecule, the departure in excitation energy is observed and is due to the overcorrection of self-interaction.

Lessons from Iowa : development of a 270 megawatt compressed air energy storage project in midwest Independent System Operator : a study for the DOE Energy Storage Systems Program.  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The Iowa Stored Energy Park was an innovative, 270 Megawatt, $400 million compressed air energy storage (CAES) project proposed for in-service near Des Moines, Iowa, in 2015. After eight years in development the project was terminated because of site geological limitations. However, much was learned in the development process regarding what it takes to do a utility-scale, bulk energy storage facility and coordinate it with regional renewable wind energy resources in an Independent System Operator (ISO) marketplace. Lessons include the costs and long-term economics of a CAES facility compared to conventional natural gas-fired generation alternatives; market, legislative, and contract issues related to enabling energy storage in an ISO market; the importance of due diligence in project management; and community relations and marketing for siting of large energy projects. Although many of the lessons relate to CAES applications in particular, most of the lessons learned are independent of site location or geology, or even the particular energy storage technology involved.

Energy input, carbon intensity and cost for ethanol produced from farmed seaweed  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Macroalgae, commonly known as seaweed, has received significant interest as a potential source of ethanol because of its fast growth, significant sugar content and successful lab-scale conversion to ethanol. Issues such as energy input in seaweed conversion, lifecycle emissions, global production potential and cost have received limited attention. To address this gap, a well-to-tank model of ethanol production from brown seaweed is developed and applied to the case of ethanol production from Saccharina latissima in British Columbia, Canada. Animal feed is proposed as a co-product and co-product credits are estimated. In the case considered, seaweed ethanol is found to have an energy return on invested (EROI) of 1.7 and a carbon intensity (CI) of 10.8gCO2eMJ?1. Ethanol production from conventionally farmed seaweed could cost less than conventional ethanol and be produced on a scale comparable to 1% of global gasoline production. A drying system is required in regions such as British Columbia that require seasonal seaweed storage due to a limited harvest season. The results are significantly influenced by variations in animal feed processing energy, co-product credit value, seaweed composition, the value of seaweed animal feed and the cost of seaweed farming. We find EROI ranges from 0.64 to 26.7, CI from 33 to ?41gCO2eMJ?1 and ethanol production is not financially viable without animal feed production in some scenarios.

Or, must we integrate this technology with other technologies in a real-world environment to discover those additional values and benefits that go beyond its solo application? When we survey the industry for technology penetration, we find a sad picture....many solo pilots, but little evidence of integrated advanced technologies. The reasons are simple and clear.

High-Energy Neutrinos Produced by Interactions of Relativistic Protons in Shocked Pulsar Winds  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We have estimated fluxes of neutrinos and gamma rays that are generated from the decay of charged and neutral pions from a pulsar surrounded by supernova ejecta in our Galaxy, including an effect that has not been taken into consideration before, that is, the interactions between high-energy cosmic rays themselves in the nebula flow, assuming that hadronic components are the energetically dominant species in the pulsar wind. The bulk flow is assumed to be randomized by passing through the termination shock, and the energy distribution functions of protons and electrons behind the termination shock are assumed to obey relativistic Maxwellians. We have found that fluxes of neutrinos and gamma rays depend very sensitively on the wind luminosity, which is assumed to be comparable to the spin-down luminosity. In the case where B = 1012 G and P = 1 ms, neutrinos should be detected by km3 high-energy neutrino detectors such as AMANDA and IceCube. Also, gamma rays should be detected by Cerenkov telescopes such as CANGAROO and HESS, as well as by gamma-ray satellites such as GLAST. On the other hand, in the case where B = 1012 G and P = 5 ms, fluxes of neutrinos and gamma rays will be too low to be detected even by the next-generation detectors. However, even in the case where B = 1012 G and P = 5 ms, there is a possibility that very high fluxes of neutrinos may be realized at early stages of a supernova explosion (t ? 1 yr), where the location of the termination shock is very near to the pulsar. We have also found that there is a possibility that protons with energies of ~105 GeV in the nebula flow may interact with the photon field from the surface of the pulsar and produce many pions, which would enhance the intensity of the resulting neutrinos and gamma rays.

Model-independent constraints on dark energy and modified gravity with the SKA  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Employing a nonparametric approach of the principal component analysis (PCA), we forecast the future constraint on the equation of state $w(z)$ of dark energy, and on the effective Newton constant $\\mu(k,z)$, which parameterise the effect of modified gravity, using the planned SKA HI galaxy survey. Combining with the simulated data of Planck and Dark Energy Survey (DES), we find that SKA Phase 1 (SKA1) and SKA Phase 2 (SKA2) can well constrain $3$ and $5$ eigenmodes of $w(z)$ respectively. The errors of the best measured modes can be reduced to 0.04 and 0.023 for SKA1 and SKA2 respectively, making it possible to probe dark energy dynamics. On the other hand, SKA1 and SKA2 can constrain $7$ and $20$ eigenmodes of $\\mu(k,z)$ respectively within 10\\% sensitivity level. Furthermore, 2 and 7 modes can be constrained within sub percent level using SKA1 and SKA2 respectively. This is a significant improvement compared to the combined datasets without SKA.

Measurements of neutrons produced by high-energy muons at the Boulby Underground Laboratory  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We present the first measurements of the muon-induced neutron flux at the Boulby Underground Laboratory. The experiment was carried out with an 0.73 tonne liquid scintillator that also served as an anticoincidence system for the ZEPLIN-II direct dark matter search. The experimental method exploited the delayed coincidences between high-energy muon signals and gamma-rays from radiative neutron capture on hydrogen or other elements. The muon-induced neutron rate, defined as the average number of detected neutrons per detected muon, was measured as 0.079 0.003 (stat.) neutrons/muon using neutron-capture signals above 0.55MeV in a time window of 40190?s after the muon trigger. Accurate Monte Carlo simulations of the neutron production, transport and detection in a precisely modeled laboratory and experimental setup using the GEANT4 toolkit gave a result 1.8 times higher than the measured value. The difference greatly exceeds all statistical and systematic uncertainties. As the vast majority of neutrons detected in the current setup were produced in lead we evaluated from our measurements the neutron yield in lead as ( 1.31 0.06 ) 10 - 3 neutrons/muon/(g/cm2) for a mean muon energy of about 260GeV.

The experiment was carried out with an 0.73 tonne liquid scintillator that also served as an anticoincidence system for the ZEPLIN-II direct dark matter search. The experimental method exploited the delayed coincidences between high-energy muon signals and gamma-rays from radiative neutron capture on hydrogen or other elements. The muon-induced neutron rate, defined as the average number of detected neutrons per detected muon, was measured as $0.079 \\pm 0.003$ (stat.) neutrons/muon using neutron-capture signals above 0.55 MeV in a time window of 40-190 $\\mu$s after the muon trigger. Accurate Monte Carlo simulations of the neutron production, transport and detection in a precisely modeled laboratory and experimental setup using the GEANT4 toolkit gave a result 1.8 times higher than the measured value. The difference greatly exceeds all statistical and systematic uncertainties. As the vast majority of neutrons detected in the current setup were produced in lead we evaluated from our measurements the neutron yield in lead as $(1.31 \\pm 0.06) \\times 10^{-3}$ neutrons/muon/(g/cm$^2$) for a mean muon energy of about 260 GeV.

Chapter 11 - Operation of Independent Large-Scale Battery-Storage Systems in Energy and Reserve Markets  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract In this chapter, we consider a scenario where a group of investor-owned independently-operated storage units seek to offer energy and reserve in the day-ahead market and energy in the hour-ahead market. We are particularly interested in the case where a significant portion of the power generated in the grid is from wind and other intermittent renewable energy resources. In this regard, we formulate a stochastic programming framework to choose optimal energy and reserve bids for the storage units that takes into account the fluctuating nature of the market prices due to the randomness in the renewable power generation availability. We show that the formulated stochastic program can be converted to a convex optimization problem to be solved efficiently. Our simulation results also show that our design can assure profitability of the private investment on storage units. We also investigate the impact of various design parameters, such as the size and location of the storage unit on increasing the profit.

Energy efficiency advocacy groups: A study of selected interactive efforts and independent initiatives  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Non-utility groups participate in a myriad of activities--initiated by themselves and others--aimed at influencing the policies and actions of utilities and their regulators related to Integrated Resource Planning (IRP) and Demand-Side Management (DSM). Some of these activities are not directed toward a particular regulatory body or utility but are designed to influence public knowledge and acceptance of IRP and DSM. Other activities involve interaction with a particular utility or regulatory body. The traditional forum for this interaction is an adversarial debate (i.e., litigation or regulatory intervention) over the merits of a utility`s plan or proposed action. However, an increasingly common forum is one in which non-utility groups and utilities cooperatively develop plans, policies, and/or programs. Arrangements of this type are referred to in this report as ``interactive efforts``. This report presents the findings derived from ten case studies of energy efficiency advocacy groups (EEAG) activities to influence the use of cost-effective DSM and to promote IRP; nine of these ten cases involve some form of interactive effort and all of them also include other EEAG activities. The goal of this research is not to measure the success of individual activities of the various groups, but to glean from a collective examination of their activities an understanding of the efficacy of various types of interactive efforts and other EEAG activities and of the contextual and procedural factors that influence their outcomes.

Comparative analysis of neutron sources produced by low-energy electrons and deuterons for driving subcritical assemblies.  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A conceptual design of an accelerator driven subcritical assembly has been developed using the existing accelerators at Kharkov Institute of Physics and Technology (KIPT) in Ukraine. Two different external neutron source options were examined for driving the subcritical assembly. Electrons with energies below 200 MeV and deuterons with energies below 100 MeV were considered. Comparative analysis of these two options is presented and discussed. The Comparative analysis of neutron sources produced by low-energy electrons and deuterons show that: (1) An electron accelerator with electron energy in the range of 150 to 200 MeV is preferred for producing neutron source; (2) The uranium target material produces the highest neutron yield per electron; (3) The uranium target with 100 KW electron beam produces 3.3 x 10{sup 14} n/s; (4) The thermal hydraulics analyses of the uranium target operating with the 100 KW electron beam power satisfy the engineering design requirements; and (5) The peak thermal stresses (secondary stress) is less than the yield strength of the uranium target material.

Reuse of Produced Water from CO2 Enhanced Oil Recovery, Reuse of Produced Water from CO2 Enhanced Oil Recovery, Coal-Bed Methane, and Mine Pool Water by Coal-Based Power Plants The Illinois State Geological Survey is evaluating the potential feasibility of reusing three types of non-traditional water sources for cooling or process water for existing and planned coal-based power plants in the Illinois Basin. The three type of non-traditional water sources are: (1) produced water from carbon dioxide enhanced oil recovery; (2) coal-bed methane (CBM) recovery; and (3) active and abandoned underground coal mines. In Illinois, the thermoelectric power sector accounts for approximately 84 percent of the estimated 14 billion gallons per day of freshwater withdrawals and one-third of the state's 1 billion gallons per day of freshwater consumption. Illinois electric power generation capacity is projected to expand 30 percent by 2030, increasing water consumption by 55 to 160 percent. Increasing public resistance to the withdrawal or consumption of freshwater for industrial purposes suggests that the use of non-traditional water sources in power plants may alleviate the expected increase in water demand.

Energy and frequency dependence of the alpha particle redistribution produced by internal kink modes  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The redistribution of alpha particles due to internal kink modes is studied. The exact particle trajectories in the total fields, equilibrium plus perturbation, are calculated. The equilibrium has circular cross section and the plasma parameters are similar to those expected in ITER. The alpha particles are initially distributed according to a slowing down distribution function and have energies between 18?keV and 3.5?MeV. The (1, 1), (2, 2), and (2, 1) modes are included and the effect of changing their amplitude and frequency is studied. When only the (1, 1) mode is included, the spreading of high energy (E?1?MeV) alpha particles increases slowly with the energy and mode frequency. At lower energies, the redistribution is more sensitive to the mode frequency and particle energy. When a (2, 1) mode is added, the spreading increases significantly and particles can reach the edge of the plasma. Trapped particles are the most affected and the redistribution parameter can have maxima above 1?MeV, depending on the mode frequency. These results can have important implications for ash removal.

An experimental study of the production of up-going charged particles in inelastic interactions of down-going underground muons is reported, using data obtained from the MACRO detector at the Gran Sasso Laboratory. In a sample of 12.2 10^6 single muons, corresponding to a detector livetime of 1.55 y, 243 events are observed having an up-going particle associated with a down-going muon. These events are analysed to determine the range and emission angle distributions of the up-going particle, corrected for detection and reconstruction efficiency. Measurements of the muon neutrino flux by underground detectors are often based on the observation of through-going and stopping muons produced in $\

Mass, energy and material balances of SRF production process. Part 1: SRF produced from commercial and industrial waste  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This paper presents the mass, energy and material balances of a solid recovered fuel (SRF) production process. The SRF is produced from commercial and industrial waste (C&IW) through mechanical treatment (MT). In this work various streams of material produced in SRF production process are analyzed for their proximate and ultimate analysis. Based on this analysis and composition of process streams their mass, energy and material balances are established for SRF production process. Here mass balance describes the overall mass flow of input waste material in the various output streams, whereas material balance describes the mass flow of components of input waste stream (such as paper and cardboard, wood, plastic (soft), plastic (hard), textile and rubber) in the various output streams of SRF production process. A commercial scale experimental campaign was conducted on an MT waste sorting plant to produce SRF from C&IW. All the process streams (input and output) produced in this MT plant were sampled and treated according to the CEN standard methods for SRF: EN 15442 and EN 15443. The results from the mass balance of SRF production process showed that of the total input C&IW material to MT waste sorting plant, 62% was recovered in the form of SRF, 4% as ferrous metal, 1% as non-ferrous metal and 21% was sorted out as reject material, 11.6% as fine fraction, and 0.4% as heavy fraction. The energy flow balance in various process streams of this SRF production process showed that of the total input energy content of C&IW to MT plant, 75% energy was recovered in the form of SRF, 20% belonged to the reject material stream and rest 5% belonged with the streams of fine fraction and heavy fraction. In the material balances, mass fractions of plastic (soft), plastic (hard), paper and cardboard and wood recovered in the SRF stream were 88%, 70%, 72% and 60% respectively of their input masses to MT plant. A high mass fraction of plastic (PVC), rubber material and non-combustibles (such as stone/rock and glass particles), was found in the reject material stream.

INDEPENDENT TECHNICAL EVALUATION AND RECOMMENDATIONS FOR CONTAMINATED GROUNDWATER AT THE DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY OFFICE OF LEGACY MANAGEMENT RIVERTON PROCESSING SITE  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The U.S. Department of Energy Office of Legacy Management (DOE-LM) manages the legacy contamination at the Riverton, WY, Processing Site a former uranium milling site that operated from 1958 to 1963. The tailings and associated materials were removed in 1988-1989 and contaminants are currently flushing from the groundwater. DOE-LM commissioned an independent technical team to assess the status of the contaminant flushing, identify any issues or opportunities for DOE-LM, and provide key recommendations. The team applied a range of technical frameworks spatial, temporal, hydrological and geochemical in performing the evaluation. In each topic area, an in depth evaluation was performed using DOE-LM site data (e.g., chemical measurements in groundwater, surface water and soil, water levels, and historical records) along with information collected during the December 2013 site visit (e.g., plant type survey, geomorphology, and minerals that were observed, collected and evaluated). A few of the key findings include: ? Physical removal of the tailings and associated materials reduced contaminant discharges to groundwater and reduced contaminant concentrations in the near-field plume. ? In the mid-field and far-field areas, residual contaminants are present in the vadose zone as a result of a variety of factors (e.g., evaporation/evapotranspiration from the capillary fringe and water table, higher water levels during tailings disposal, and geochemical processes). ? Vadose zone contaminants are widely distributed above the plume and are expected to be present as solid phase minerals that can serve as secondary sources to the underlying groundwater. The mineral sample collected at the site is consistent with thermodynamic predictions. ? Water table fluctuations, irrigation, infiltration and flooding will episodically solubilize some of the vadose zone secondary source materials and release contaminants to the groundwater for continued down gradient migration extending the overall timeframe for flushing. ? Vertical contaminant stratification in the vadose zone and surficial aquifer will vary from location to location. Soil and water sampling strategies and monitoring well construction details will influence characterization and monitoring data. ? Water flows from the Wind River, beneath the Riverton Processing Site and through the plume toward the Little Wind River. This base flow pattern is influenced by seasonal irrigation and other anthropogenic activities, and by natural perturbations (e.g., flooding). ? Erosion and reworking of the sediments adjacent to the Little Wind River results in high heterogeneity and complex flow and geochemistry. Water flowing into oxbow lakes (or through areas where oxbow lakes were present in the past) will be exposed to localized geochemical conditions that favor chemical reduction (i.e., naturally reduced zones) and other attenuation processes. This attenuation is not sufficient to fully stabilize the plume or to reduce contaminant concentrations in the groundwater to target levels. Consistent with these observations, the team recommended increased emphasis on collecting data in the zones where secondary source minerals are projected to accumulate (e.g., just above the water table) using low cost methods such as x-ray fluorescence. The team also suggested several low cost nontraditional sources of data that have the potential to provide supplemental data (e.g., multispectral satellite imagery) to inform and improve legacy management decisions. There are a range of strategies for management of the legacy contamination in the groundwater and vadose zone near the Riverton Processing Site. These range from the current strategy, natural flushing, to intrusive remedies such as plume scale excavation of the vadose zone and pump & treat. Each option relates to the site specific conditions, issues and opportunities in a unique way. Further, each option has advantages and disadvantages that need to be weighed. Scoping evaluation was performed for three major classes

Optimizing conversion efficiency and reducing ion energy in a laser-produced Gd plasma  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We have demonstrated an efficient extreme ultraviolet (EUV) source at 6.7 nm by irradiating Gd targets with 0.8 and 1.06 {mu}m laser pulses of 140 fs to 10 ns duration. Maximum conversion efficiency of 0.4% was observed within a 0.6% bandwidth. A Faraday cup observed ion yield and time of flight signals for ions from plasmas generated by each laser. Ion kinetic energy was lower for shorter pulse durations, which yielded higher electron temperatures required for efficient EUV emission, due to higher laser intensity. Picosecond laser pulses were found to be the best suited to 6.7 nm EUV source generation.

High Shear Deformation to Produce High Strength and Energy Absorption in Mg Alloys  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Magnesium alloys have the potential to reduce the mass of transportation systems however to fully realize the benefits it must be usable in more applications including those that require higher strength and ductility. It has been known that fine grain size in Mg alloys leads to high strength and ductility. However, the challenge is how to achieve this optimal microstructure in a cost effective way. This work has shown that by using optimized high shear deformation and second phase particles of Mg2Si and MgxZnZry the energy absorption of the extrusions can exceed that of AA6061. The extrusion process under development described in this presentation appears to be scalable and cost effective. In addition to process development a novel modeling approach to understand the roles of strain and state-of-strain on particle fracture and grain size control has been developed

Storage Storage Developing safe, reliable, compact, and cost-effective hydrogen stor- age technologies is one of the most technically challenging barriers to the widespread use of hydrogen as a form of energy. To be competitive with conventional vehicles, hydrogen- powered cars must be able to travel more than 300 mi between fills. This is a challenging goal because hydrogen has physical characteristics that make it difficult to store in large quantities without taking up a significant amount of space. Where and How Will Hydrogen be Stored? Hydrogen storage will be required onboard vehicles and at hydrogen production sites, hydrogen refueling sta- tions, and stationary power sites. Possible approaches to storing hydrogen include: * Physical storage of compressed

May 22, 2003 May 22, 2003 Providing Solutions for the Nation's Independent Oil Producers Six New Projects Selected for Grants in DOE's "Technology Development with Independents" Program TULSA, OK - The U.S. Department of Energy has added six new projects to its "Technology Development with Independents" program. The program is intended to assist small independent oil producers in testing higher-risk technologies that could keep oil flowing from thousands of U.S. fields. Independent oil and gas producers operate the majority of wells in the United States. More than ever this segment of the oil and gas industry plays a major role in the recovery of our Nation's domestic oil and gas resources. Since the program began in 1995, over 57 projects have been initiated by small independent operators in 19 different states. Independent operators have contributed more than 70% of the investment needed for these projects. Sharing the risks and expenses has resulted in innovative methods and technologies which have boosted oil production and prevented the premature shut down of some of the nation's most endangered oil fields.

Mass, energy and material balances of SRF production process. Part 2: SRF produced from construction and demolition waste  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract In this work, the fraction of construction and demolition waste (C&D waste) complicated and economically not feasible to sort out for recycling purposes is used to produce solid recovered fuel (SRF) through mechanical treatment (MT). The paper presents the mass, energy and material balances of this SRF production process. All the process streams (input and output) produced in MT waste sorting plant to produce SRF from C&D waste are sampled and treated according to CEN standard methods for SRF. Proximate and ultimate analysis of these streams is performed and their composition is determined. Based on this analysis and composition of process streams their mass, energy and material balances are established for SRF production process. By mass balance means the overall mass flow of input waste material stream in the various output streams and material balances mean the mass flow of components of input waste material stream (such as paper and cardboard, wood, plastic (soft), plastic (hard), textile and rubber) in the various output streams of SRF production process. The results from mass balance of SRF production process showed that of the total input C&D waste material to MT waste sorting plant, 44% was recovered in the form of SRF, 5% as ferrous metal, 1% as non-ferrous metal, and 28% was sorted out as fine fraction, 18% as reject material and 4% as heavy fraction. The energy balance of this SRF production process showed that of the total input energy content of C&D waste material to MT waste sorting plant, 74% was recovered in the form of SRF, 16% belonged to the reject material and rest 10% belonged to the streams of fine fraction and heavy fraction. From the material balances of this process, mass fractions of plastic (soft), paper and cardboard, wood and plastic (hard) recovered in the SRF stream were 84%, 82%, 72% and 68% respectively of their input masses to MT plant. A high mass fraction of plastic (PVC) and rubber material was found in the reject material stream. Streams of heavy fraction and fine fraction mainly contained non-combustible material (such as stone/rock, sand particles and gypsum material).

Bounds on an energy-dependent and observer-independent speed of light from violations of locality  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We show that models with deformations of special relativity that have an energy-dependent speed of light have non-local effects. The requirement that the arising non-locality is not in conflict with known particle physics allows us to derive strong bounds on deformations of special relativity and rule out a modification to first order in energy over the Planck mass.

Measurements of electrical resistivity of heavy ion beam produced high energy density matter: Latest results for lead and tungsten  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The high-intensity heavy ion beams provided by the accelerator facilities of the Gesellschaft fr Schwerionenforschung (GSI) Darmstadt are an excellent tool to produce large volumes of high energy density (HED) matter. Thermophysical and transport properties of HED matter states are of interest for fundamental as well as for applied research. During the last few years development of new diagnostic techniques allowed for a series of measurements of the electrical resistivity of heavy ion beam generated HED matter. In this report we present the most recent results on electrical resistivity of HED matter at GSI. The experiments on which we report have been performed with targets consisting of tungsten wires and lead foils, respectively. Uranium and argon beam pulses with durations of a few hundred ns, intensities of about 2 10 9 and 1 10 11 ions / bunch , respectively, and an initial ion energy of 300350AMeV have been used as a driver. An energy density deposition of about 1kJ/g has been achieved by focusing the ion beam down to 1mm FWHM or less.

Independent measurement of the top quark mass and the light- and bottom-jet energy scales at hadron colliders  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

A method for the simultaneous determination of the energy scales for b-quark jets and light jets, the jet energy resolution, and the top quark mass at hadron colliders is presented. The method exploits the unique kinematics of events with top-antitop pair production, where one of the top quarks involves a leptonic and one a hadronic W boson decay. The paper shows a feasibility study of how this simultaneous measurement can be performed at the upcoming LHC experiments ATLAS and CMS.

A Model-Independent Method of Determining Energy Scale and Muon Number in Cosmic Ray Surface Detectors  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Surface detector arrays are designed to measure the spectrum and composition of high-energy cosmic rays by detecting the secondary particle flux of the Extensive Air Showers (EAS) induced by the primary cosmic rays. Electromagnetic particles and muons constitute the dominant contribution to the ground detector signals. In this paper, we show that the ground signal deposit of an EAS can be described in terms of only very few parameters: the primary energy E, the zenith angle theta, the distance of the shower maximum X_max to the ground, and a muon flux normalization N_mu. This set of physical parameters is sufficient to predict the average particle fluxes at ground level to around 10% accuracy. We show that this is valid for hadronic air showers, using the two standard hadronic interaction models used in cosmic ray physics, QGSJetII and Sibyll, and for primaries from protons to iron. Based on this model, a new approach to calibrating the energy scale of ground array experiments is developed, which factors out the model dependence inherent in such calibrations up to now. Additionally, the method yields a measurement of the average number of muons in EAS. The measured distribution of N_mu of cosmic ray air showers can then be analysed, in conjunction with measurements of X_max from fluorescence detectors, to put constraints on the cosmic ray composition and hadronic interaction models.

The mission of this program is to provide DOE line management, Congress, and other stakeholders with an independent evaluation of the effectiveness of DOE policy and line management performance in safety and security, and other critical areas as directed by the Secretary of Energy. The Office of Enforcement and Oversight performs this mission by conducting activity, facility, site, and Department-wide performance-based assessments that are designed to verify that the Department's safeguards and security interests are protected, that the Department can effectively respond to emergencies, and that Departmental employees, the public, and the environment are protected from hazardous operations and materials. These assessments complement line management's responsibility for security and safety program oversight and self-assessments. The outcome of these assessments are reports that provide information and analysis regarding the effectiveness, vulnerabilities, and trends in DOE safety and security programs, and identify issues requiring corrective action as well as recommended areas for improvement.

TARGETED TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER TO US INDEPENDENTS  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The Petroleum Technology Transfer Council (PTTC) continued pursuing its mission of assisting U.S. independent oil and gas producers with timely, informed technology decisions during Fiscal Year 2004 (FY04). PTTC has active grassroots programs through its 10 Regional Lead Organizations (RLOs) and 2 satellite offices. They bring research and academia to the table via their association with geological surveys and engineering departments. The regional directors interact with independent oil and gas producers through technology workshops, resource centers, websites, newsletters, technical publications and other cooperative outreach efforts. PTTC's Headquarters (HQ) staff receives direction from a National Board of Directors predominantly comprised of American natural gas and oil producers to plan and manage the overall technology transfer program. PTTC HQ implements a comprehensive communications program by interconnecting the talents of the National Board, 10 Regional Producer Advisory Groups (PAG) and the RLOs with industry across the U.S. PTTC effectively combines federal funding through the Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy, namely the Strategic Center for Natural Gas and Oil with state and industry contributions to share application of upstream technologies. Ultimately, these efforts factor in to provide a safe, secure and reliable energy supply for American consumers. This integrated resource base, combined with industry volunteers guiding PTTC's activities and the dedication of national and regional staff, are achieving notable results regarding domestic production figures. PTTC is increasingly recognized as a critical resource for information and access to technologies by providing direct contact with research, development and demonstration (RD&D) results. A key to the program is demonstrating proven technologies that can be applied broadly and rapidly. This technical progress report summarizes PTTC's accomplishments during FY04. Activities remained at high levels. Board and staff interaction has defined strategic thrusts to further outreach. Networking, involvement in technical activities and an active exhibit schedule are increasing PTTC's sphere of influence with both producers and the service sector. PTTC's reputation for unbiased bottom line information stimulates cooperative ventures with other organizations. Efforts to build the contact database and a growing E-mail Technology Alert service are expanding PTTC's audience.

Broader source: Energy.gov [DOE]

This case study looks at the results of a DOE energy assessment at U.S. Steels Minntac plant in Mt. Iron, Minnesota, to analyze the efficiency of the plants process heating systems and determine energy savings opportunities. The assessment confirmed the energy savings from recently installed burners and determined the potential savings from retrofitting the kilns in the plant's other process lines with such burner systems. The new burners are yielding annual cost and energy savings of $760,000 and 95,000 MMBtu respectively. Additionally, the plant saves $30,000 in annual maintenance labor costs. With project costs of approximately $1.2 million, the plant achieved a simple payback of 1.5 years.

Independents' group posts loss  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Low oil gas prices and special charges caused the group of 50 U.S. independent producers Oil and Gas Journal tracks to post a combined loss in first half 1992. The group logged a net loss of $53 million in the first half compared with net earnings of $354 million in first half 1991, when higher oil prices during the Persian Gulf crisis buoyed earnings in spite of crude oil and natural gas production declines. The combined loss in the first half follows a 45% drop in the group's earnings in 1991 and compares with the OGJ group of integrated oil companies whose first half 1992 income fell 47% from the prior year. Special charges, generally related to asset writedowns, accounted for most of the almost $560 million in losses posted by about the third of the group. Nerco Oil and Gas Inc., Vancouver, Wash., alone accounted for almost half that total with charges related to an asset writedown of $238 million in the first quarter. Despite the poor first half performance, the outlook is bright for sharply improved group earnings in the second half, assuming reasonably healthy oil and gas prices and increased production resulting from acquisitions and in response to those prices.

Rabi Waves and Peculiarities of Raman Scattering in Carbon Nanotubes, Produced by High Energy Ion Beam Modification of Diamond Single Crystals  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

QED-model for multichain coupled qubit system, proposed in \\cite{Part1}, was confirmed by Raman scattering studies of carbon zigzag-shaped nanotubes, produced by high energy ion beam modification of natural diamond single crystals. New quantum optics phenomenon - Rabi waves - has been experimentally identified for the first time. Raman spectra in perfect quasi-1D carbon nanotubes are quite different in comparison with well known Raman spectra in 2D carbon nanotubes of larger diameter. They characterized by vibronic mode of Su-Schriffer-Heeger $\\sigma$-polaron lattice and its revival part in frequency representation, which is the consequence of Rabi wave packet formation.

A proposed design and fabrication of lenses and mirrors from a set of spherical rings that produce desired energy distributions for solar energy applications  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The amount of energy contained in the solar aureole affects the performance of solar systems. Solar optical systems are, therefore, dependent on the characteristics of the shape of the sun in a specific geographical location. For this reason, the present study proposes the design of solid lenses and mirrors modelled from a set of concentric spherical rings that give a desired distribution of energy in the focal plane. One hundred spherical rings, whose optimum curvature radius values were calculated by Genetic Algorithms, were employed in the modelling process. The study also proposes a design of a petal tool to polish lens and mirror surfaces. (author)

Independent and correlated composition behavior of material properties:?Application to energy band gaps for the Ga?In1-?P?As1-? and Ga?In1-?P?Sb?As1-?-? alloys  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A correlated function expansion (CFE) is introduced (a) to identify the role of independent and correlated composition variations upon a desired material property, and (b) to provide an efficient means to compute the property throughout the composition space. As an example the contributions of independent and correlated composition behavior upon the principal energy band gaps for the alloys Ga?In1-?P?As1-? and Ga?In1-?P?Sb?As1-?-? are calculated and analyzed by applying the CFE to the universal tight-binding (UTB) Hamiltonian model of the alloys. The convergence properties of the CFE over the entire composition variable space (?,?,?) are examined upon including independent, pair-, and triple-correlated terms. By retaining only independent component contributions in the CFE it was possible to represent the UTB results to better than 90% accuracy for both the alloys Ga?In1-?P?As1-? and Ga?In1-?P?Sb?As1-?-?. Pair composition correlations contributed approximately 510 % to the band gaps in both alloys and for Ga?In1-?P?Sb?As1-?-? the triple correlations were at the level of ?3%. The CFE is a generic tool capable of simplifying efforts at finding desired alloy compositions for material properties.

Angular distribution of thick-target bremsstrahlung produced by electrons with initial energies ranging from 10 to 20 keV incident on Ag  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Experimental results are presented comparing the intensities of the bremsstrahlung produced by electrons with initial energies ranging from 10 to 20 keV incident on a thick Ag target, measured at forward angles in the range of 0 to 55. When the data are corrected for attenuation due to photon absorption within the target, the results indicate that the detected radiation is distributed anisotropically only at photon energies k that are approximately equal to the initial energy of the incident electrons E0. The results of our experiments suggest that, as k/E0 ? 0, the detected radiation essentially becomes isotropic due primarily to the scattering of electrons within the target. A comparison to the theory of Kissel et al. [At. Data Nucl. Data Tables 28, 381 (1983)] suggests that the angular distribution of bremsstrahlung emitted by electrons incident on thick targets is similar to the angular distribution of bremsstrahlung emitted by electrons incident on free-atom targets only when k/E0 ? 1. The experimental data also are in approximate agreement with the angular distribution predictions of the Monte Carlo program penelope.

What is the realistic potential for biomethane produced through gasification of indigenous Willow or imported wood chip to meet renewable energy heat targets?  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Biomethane is a gaseous energy vector with a distribution system (the natural gas grid) in place. Biomethane may be produced through thermal gasification of Willow and may be used as a source of renewable heat. Two scales were assessed: a 50MWth facility based on indigenous Willow and a 300MWth facility based at an international port importing wood chip. The model suggested that eleven 50MWth gasifiers, each requiring 6800ha of Willow, in a rural environment, with gas grid injection to the distribution grid, would satisfy the shortfall in the 2020 target for renewable energy supply in the heat market in Ireland. Alternatively two number 300MWth facilities each requiring importation of 1,000,000 t/yr of wood chip, situated adjacent to an international port would satisfy the shortfall. This is seen as less attractive as the feed stock is not indigenous and in times of austerity does not facilitate local rural employment. The capital cost of the facilities for both scales is less than that required to provide the same quantity of renewable heat through domestic wood pellet boilers in domiciles.

Rabi Wave Packets and Peculiarities of Raman Scattering in Carbon Nanotubes, Produced by High Energy Ion Beam Modification of Diamond Single Crystals  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

QED-model for multichain coupled qubit system, proposed in \\cite{Part1}, was confirmed by Raman scattering studies of quasi-1D carbon zigzag-shaped nanotubes (CZSNTs), produced by high energy ion beam modification of natural diamond single crystals. Multichain coupled qubit system represents itself Su-Schriffer-Heeger $\\sigma$-polaron lattice, formed in CZSNTs plus quantized external electromagnetic (EM) field. New quantum optics phenomenon - Rabi waves, predicted in \\cite{Slepyan_Yerchak} has experimentally been identified for the first time. It is shown, that Raman spectra in quasi-1D CZSNTs are quite different in comparison with well known Raman spectra in 2D those ones. They characterized by semiclassical consideration by the only one vibronic mode of Su-Schriffer-Heeger $\\sigma$-polaron lattice instead of longitudinal and transverse optical phonon $G^+$ and $G^-$modes and the out-of-plane radial breathing mode, which are observed in Raman spectra of 2D single wall nanotubes. It is consequence of 2D - 1D transition in all physical properties of nanotubes. It is shown, that strong electron-photon coupling takes place in CZSNTs by interaction with EM-field and quantum nature of EM-field has to be taken into account. It has been done for the first time in stationary spectroscopy at all. All optical spectra, in particular, Raman spectra are registered by usual stationary measurement technique in nonequilibrium conditions, which are the consequence of Rabi wave packets' formation. It leads in its turn to appearance of additional lines, corresponding to revival part of inversion dependence of joint EM-field + matter system in frequency representation.

Jet momentum balance independent of shear viscosity  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Jet momentum balance measurements, such as those recently performed by the CMS collaboration, provide an opportunity to quantify the energy transferred from a parton shower to the underlying medium in heavy-ion collisions. Specifically, I argue that the Cooper-Frye freezeout distribution associated with the energy and momentum deposited by the parton shower is controlled to a significant extent by the distribution of the underlying bulk matter and independent of the details of how deposited energy is redistributed in the medium, which is largely determined by transport coefficients such as shear viscosity. Thus by matching the distribution of momentum associated with the secondary jet in such measurements to the thermal distribution of the underlying medium, one can obtain a model independent estimate on the amount of parton shower energy deposited.

Frame independent cosmological perturbations  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We compute the third order gauge invariant action for scalar-graviton interactions in the Jordan frame. We demonstrate that the gauge invariant action for scalar and tensor perturbations on one physical hypersurface only differs from that on another physical hypersurface via terms proportional to the equation of motion and boundary terms, such that the evolution of non-Gaussianity may be called unique. Moreover, we demonstrate that the gauge invariant curvature perturbation and graviton on uniform field hypersurfaces in the Jordan frame are equal to their counterparts in the Einstein frame. These frame independent perturbations are therefore particularly useful in relating results in different frames at the perturbative level. On the other hand, the field perturbation and graviton on uniform curvature hypersurfaces in the Jordan and Einstein frame are non-linearly related, as are their corresponding actions and n-point functions.

Alternate Fuel Cell Membranes for Energy Independence  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The overall objective of this project was the development and evaluation of novel hydrocarbon fuel cell (FC) membranes that possess high temperature performance and long term chemical/mechanical durability in proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells (FC). The major research theme was synthesis of aromatic hydrocarbon polymers of the poly(arylene ether sulfone) (PAES) type containing sulfonic acid groups tethered to the backbone via perfluorinated alkylene linkages and in some cases also directly attached to the phenylene groups along the backbone. Other research themes were the use of nitrogen-based heterocyclics instead of acid groups for proton conduction, which provides high temperature, low relative humidity membranes with high mechanical/thermal/chemical stability and pendant moieties that exhibit high proton conductivities in the absence of water, and synthesis of block copolymers consisting of a proton conducting block coupled to poly(perfluorinated propylene oxide) (PFPO) blocks. Accomplishments of the project were as follows: 1) establishment of a vertically integrated program of synthesis, characterization, and evaluation of FC membranes, 2) establishment of benchmark membrane performance data based on Nafion for comparison to experimental membrane performance, 3) development of a new perfluoroalkyl sulfonate monomer, N,N-diisopropylethylammonium 2,2-bis(p-hydroxyphenyl) pentafluoropropanesulfonate (HPPS), 4) synthesis of random and block copolymer membranes from HPPS, 5) synthesis of block copolymer membranes containing high-acid-concentration hydrophilic blocks consisting of HPPS and 3,3'-disulfonate-4,4'-dichlorodiphenylsulfone (sDCDPS), 6) development of synthetic routes to aromatic polymer backbones containing pendent 1H-1,2,3-triazole moieties, 7) development of coupling strategies to create phase-separated block copolymers between hydrophilic sulfonated prepolymers and commodity polymers such as PFPO, 8) establishment of basic performance properties of experimental membranes, 9) fabrication and FC performance testing of membrane electrode assemblies (MEA) from experimental membranes, and 10) measurement of ex situ and in situ membrane durability of experimental membranes. Although none of the experimental hydrocarbon membranes that issued from the project displayed proton conductivities that met DOE requirements, the project contributed to our basic understanding of membrane structure-property relationships in a number of key respects. An important finding of the benchmark studies is that physical degradation associated with humidity and temperature variations in the FC tend to open new fuel crossover pathways and act synergistically with chemical degradation to accelerate overall membrane degradation. Thus, for long term membrane survival and efficient fuel utilization, membranes must withstand internal stresses due to humidity and temperature changes. In this respect, rigid aromatic hydrocarbon fuel cell membranes, e.g. PAES, offer an advantage over un-modified Nafion membranes. The benchmark studies also showed that broadband dielectric spectroscopy is a potentially powerful tool in assessing shifts in the fundamental macromolecular dynamics caused by Nafion chemical degradation, and thus, this technique is of relevance in interrogating proton exchange membrane durability in fuel cells and macromolecular dynamics as coupled to proton migration, which is of fundamental relevance in proton exchange membranes in fuel cells. A key finding from the hydrocarbon membrane synthesis effort was that rigid aromatic polymers containing isolated ion exchange groups tethered tightly to the backbone (short tether), such as HPPS, provide excellent mechanical and durability properties but do not provide sufficient conductivity, in either random or block configuration, when used as the sole ion exchange monomer. However, we continue to hypothesize that longer tethers, and tethered groups spaced more closely within the hydrophilic chain elements of the polymer, will yield highly conductive materials with excellent mech

Modeling energy dependence of the inner-shell x-ray emission produced by femtosecond-pulse laser irradiation of xenon clusters  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We employ the Los Alamos suite of atomic physics codes to model the inner-shell x-ray emission spectrum of xenon and compare results with those obtained via high-resolution x-ray spectroscopy of xenon clusters irradiated by 30fs Ti:Sapphire laser pulses. We find that the commonly employed configuration-average approximation breaks down and significant spin-orbit splitting necessitates a detailed level accounting. We reproduce an interesting spectral trend for a series of experimental spectra taken with varying pulse energy for fixed pulse duration. To simulate the experimental measurements at increasing beam energies, we find that spectral modeling requires an increased hot electron fraction, but decreased atomic density and bulk electron temperature. We believe these latter conditions to be a result of partial cluster destruction due to the increased energy in the laser prepulse.

Sequence independent amplification of DNA  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

The present invention is a rapid sequence-independent amplification procedure (SIA). Even minute amounts of DNA from various sources can be amplified independent of any sequence requirements of the DNA or any a priori knowledge of any sequence characteristics of the DNA to be amplified. This method allows, for example, the sequence independent amplification of microdissected chromosomal material and the reliable construction of high quality fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) probes from YACs or from other sources. These probes can be used to localize YACs on metaphase chromosomes but also--with high efficiency--in interphase nuclei. 25 figs.

Mass-Spectrometric Measurement of Lithium, Beryllium, and Boron Isotopes Produced in O16 by High-Energy Protons, and Some Astrophysical Implications  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A special mass-spectrometric method has been developed to determine the isotopic ratios and isotopic absolute cross sections of Li, Be, and B, formed by spallation of oxygen irradiated by protons of energy 135, 550, and 19 GeV. A brief description is given of the ion source of the mass spectrometerof an ion sputtering typewhich permits a very efficient ionization of beryllium and boron. The performances are given; they allow the analysis of 10-12 to 10-13 g of these elements. The oxygen target is made of very high purity water, and special handling techniques have been worked out to reduce contamination to an acceptable level. The determination of each of the isotopic ratios Li7/Li6, Be9/Be7, Be10/Be9, and B11/B10 requires a specific method, which is described. Isotope dilution techniques are used to obtain the absolute cross sections; values in millibarns for 135-MeV protons are as follows: Li6:102, Li7:8.02.5, Be9:1.70.5, Be10:0.350.20, B10:113, and B11:258. There are no significant changes at the higher energies. The above cross sections give support to conclusions based previously on calculated values concerning the spallation origin of Li, Be, and B in the solar system, in stars, and in the cosmic radiation.

Energy-Saving Melting and Revert Reduction Technology (E-SMARRT): Lost Foam Thin Wall - Feasibility of Producing Lost Foam Castings in Aluminum and Magnesium Based Alloys  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

With the increased emphasis on vehicle weight reduction, production of near-net shape components by lost foam casting will make significant inroad into the next-generation of engineering component designs. The lost foam casting process is a cost effective method for producing complex castings using an expandable polystyrene pattern and un-bonded sand. The use of un-bonded molding media in the lost foam process will impose less constraint on the solidifying casting, making hot tearing less prevalent. This is especially true in Al-Mg and Al-Cu alloy systems that are prone to hot tearing when poured in rigid molds partially due to their long freezing range. Some of the unique advantages of using the lost foam casting process are closer dimensional tolerance, higher casting yield, and the elimination of sand cores and binders. Most of the aluminum alloys poured using the lost foam process are based on the Al-Si system. Very limited research work has been performed with Al-Mg and Al-Cu type alloys. With the increased emphasis on vehicle weight reduction, and given the high-strength-to-weight-ratio of magnesium, significant weight savings can be achieved by casting thin-wall (? 3 mm) engineering components from both aluminum- and magnesium-base alloys.

Synergic and conflicting issues in planning underground use to produce energy in densely populated countries, as Italy: Geological storage of CO2, natural gas, geothermics and nuclear waste disposal  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In densely populated countries there is a growing and compelling need to use underground for different and possibly coexisting technologies to produce low carbon energy. These technologies include (i) clean coal combustion merged with CO2 Capture and Storage (CCS); (ii) last-generation nuclear power or, in any case, safe nuclear wastes disposal, both temporary and geological somewhere in Europe (at least in one site): Nuclear wastes are not necessarily associated to nuclear power plants; (iii) safe natural gas (CH4) reserves to allow consumption also when the foreign pipelines are less available or not available for geopolitical reasons and (iv) low-space-consuming renewables in terms of Energy Density Potential in Land (EDPL measured in [GWh/ha/year]) as geothermics. When geothermics is exploited as low enthalpy technology, the heat/cool production could be associated, where possible, to increased measures of building efficiency, low seismic risks building reworking and low-enthalpy heat managing. This is undispensable to build up smart cities. In any case the underground geological knowledge is prerequisite. All these technologies have been already proposed and defined by the International Energy Agency (IEA) Road Map 2009 as priorities for worldwide security: all need to use underground in a rational and safe manner. The underground is not renewable in most of case histories [10,11]. IEA recently matched and compared different technologies in a unique Clean Energy Economy improved document (Paris, November 1617, 2011), by the contribution of this vision too (see reference). In concert with energy efficiency improvement both for plants and buildings, in the frame of the smart cities scenarios, and the upstanding use of energy savings, the energetic planning on regional scale where these cities are located, are strategic for the year 2050: this planning is strongly depending by the underground availability and typology. Therefore, if both literature and European Policy are going fast to improve the concept of smart cities this paper stresses the concept of smart regions, more strategic than smart cities, passing throughout a discussion on the synergic and conflicting use of underground to produce energy for the smart regions as a whole. The paper highlights the research lines which are urgent to plan the soundest energy mix for each region by considering the underground performances case by case: a worldwide mapping, by GIS tools of this kind of information could be strategic for all the world energy management authorities, up to ONU, with its Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the G20, the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum (CSLF) and the European Platforms such as the Zero Emissions Fossil Fuel Power Plants (EU-ZEP Platform), the Steel Platform, the Biomass Platform too. All of these organizations agree on the need for synergistic and coexistent uses of underground for geological storage of CO2, CH4, nuclear waste and geothermic exploitation. The paper is therefore a discussion of the tools, methods and approaches to these underground affecting technologies, after a gross view of the different uses of underground to produce energy for each use, with their main critical issues (i.e. public acceptance in different cases). The paper gives some gross evaluation for the Lazio Region and some hints from the Campania Region, located in Central Italy. Energy Density Potential in Land (EDPL), is calculated for each renewable energy technology (solar, wind, geothermal) highlighting the potentiality of the last. Why the Italian case history among the densely populated countries? on the Italian territory is hard to find suitable areas (mostly if greenfields) to use the own underground, with respect to other European countries, due to the presence of seismotectonic activity and many faulted areas characterized by Diffuse Degassing Structures (DDSs, which are rich in CO2 and CH4). In this cases, public acceptan

Method for producing high energy electroluminescent devices  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

A method is described for fabricating electroluminescent devices exhibiting visible electroluminescence at room temperature, where the devices include at least one doped layer of amorphous hydrogenated silicon (a-Si:H). The a-Si:H layer is deposited on a substrate by homogeneous chemical vapor deposition (H-CVD) in which the substrate is held at a temperature lower than about 200.degree. C. and the a-Si:H layer is doped in-situ during deposition, the amount of hydrogen incorporated in the deposited layer being 12-50 atomic percent. The bandgap of the a-Si:H layer is between 1.6 and 2.6 eV, and in preferrable embodiments is between 2.0 and 2.6 eV. The conductivity of the a-Si:H layer is chosen in accordance with device requirements, and can be 10.sup.16 -10.sup.19 carriers/cm.sup.2. The bandgap of the a-Si:H layer depends at least in part on the temperature of the substrate on which the layer is deposited, and can be "tuned" by changing the substrate temperature.
