Energy bidding strategies for restructured electricity market  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Many countries around the world have changed the economics of their electricity markets from monopolies to oligopolies in an effort to increase competition. The restructured electricity markets have introduced risk and uncertainty into a sector of the economy that was traditionally state-owned. Suppliers and customers use financial methods to manage the risk from market prices. The maximization of profit for power companies is highly associated with the bidding strategies. In order to maximize the profit, participants need suitable bidding models. In an open access electricity market, the bidding problem is a complicated task because of producers uncertain behaviors and demand fluctuation. Therefore, developing bidding strategy is extremely important for electricity market participants to achieve the maximum profit. This paper analyses a comprehensive literature on the state of the art research of bidding strategies in restructured electric power market.

Review of consolidated Edison`s integrated resource bidding program  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Competitive bidding has emerged as the dominant method for procuring new resources by US utilities. In New York, the Public Service Commission (NYPSC) ordered the state`s seven investor-owned utilities to develop bidding programs to acquire supply and DSM resource options. Utilities were allowed significant discretion in program design in order to encourage experimentation. Competitive bidding programs pose formidable policy, design, and management challenges for utilities and their regulators. Yet, there have been few detailed case studies of bidding programs, particularly of those utilities that take on the additional challenge of having supply and DSM resources compete head-to-head for a designated block of capacity. To address that need, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), the New York Department of Public Service, and the Department of Energy`s Integrated Resource Planning program asked Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory (LBL) to review the bidding programs of two utilities that tested the integrated ``all-sources`` approach. This study focuses primarily on Consolidated Edison Company of New York`s (Con Edison) bidding program; an earlier report discusses our review of Niagara Mohawk`s program (Goldman et al 1992). We reviewed relevant Commission decisions, utility filings and signed contracts, interviewed utility and regulatory staff, surveyed DSM bidders and a selected sample of DSM non-bidders, and analyzed the bid evaluation system used in ranking bids based on detailed scoring information on individual bids provided by Con Edison.

Strategic bidding for wind power producers in electricity markets  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract In evolving electricity markets, wind power producers (WPPs) would increase their profit through strategic bidding. However, generated power by \\{WPPs\\} is highly random, which may result into heavy imbalance charges. In markets dominated by wind generators, they would optimize their offered bids, considering rival behavior. In oligopolistic day-ahead electricity markets, this strategic behavior can be represented as a Stochastic Cournot model. Wind uncertainty is represented by scenarios generated using Auto Regressive Moving Average (ARMA) model. With a consideration of wind power uncertainty and imbalance charges, strategic \\{WPPs\\} can maximize their expected payoff or profit through the proposed Nash equilibrium based bidding strategy. Nash equilibrium is obtained using payoff matrix approach. Proposed approach is evaluated on two realistic case studies considering different technical constraints. Obtained results shows that proposed bidding strategy mechanism offers quantum increase in profit for WPPs, when their behavior is modeled in a game theoretic framework. Flexibility of approach offers opportunities for its extension to associated challenges.

The impact of competitive bidding on the market prospects for renewable electric technologies  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This report examines issues regarding the ability of renewable-energy-based generation projects to compete fossil-fuel-based projects in competitive bidding solicitations. State and utility bidding results revealed that on a relative basis, utilities contract for less renewable-energy-based capacity under competitive bidding than under past methods of qualifying facility contracting. It was concluded that renewables are not being chosen more often under competitive bidding because it emphasizes price and operating considerations over other attributes of renewables, such as environmental considerations, fuel diversity, and fuel price stability. Examples are given of bidding approaches used by some states and utilities that have resulted in renewables-based projects winning generation bids. In addition, the appendix summarizes, by state, competitive bidding activities and results for supply-side solicitations that were open to all fuels and technologies.

Bridging the gap between first- and second-price auctions with withdrawable winning bids  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This paper formulates and analyzes game-theoretic and decision-theoretic models of auctions in which bidders may submit multiple bids and, perhaps at cost, withdraw bids that are more aggressive than necessary to win. While such withdrawal strategies are currently surreptitious, legitimization would create market mechanisms intermediate between first-price and second-price auctions. We describe a particular auction in which a winning bid was withdrawn and fit one of our models to data from it.

Review of US utility demand-side bidding programs: Impacts, costs, and cost-effectiveness  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In this study, we review utility experiences with demand-side management (DSM) bidding programs. Since 1987, about 35 US utilities have signed long-term contracts with developers of DSM resources (ie energy service companies and customers) to provide a quantity of demand and energy savings at specified prices. Total resource costs range between 5.4 and 8 cents/kWh for 10 DSM bidding programs where complete information on program costs is available. Almost all DSM bidding programs have been cost-effective compared with the utility's own supply-side alternatives, although there is substantial disagreement regarding the value of these programs compared with the utility's own DSM programs. In most bidding programs, payments to bidders account for between 70 and 90% of total program costs. Variation in winning bid prices is influenced primarily by DSM bid ceiling prices, differences in the mix of measures and markets targeted by developers, and the degree of performance risk borne by the DSM developer. Bids targeting residential customers averaged 6.2 cents/kWh compared with about 5.0 cents/kWh for commercial/industrial bids. We also compared the costs of acquiring lighting savings in DSM bidding contracts with a sample of 20 utility-sponsored commercial/industrial lighting programs. We found that, on average, total resource costs were slightly higher in bidding programs (6.1 vs 5.6 cents/kWh), although ratepayers bear significantly less performance risk in bidding programs compared with traditional utility-sponsored DSM programs.

Radiation receiver  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

The apparatus for collecting radiant energy and converting same to alternate energy form includes a housing having an interior space and a radiation transparent window allowing, for example, solar radiation to be received in the interior space of the housing. Means are provided for passing a stream of fluid past said window and for injecting radiation absorbent particles in said fluid stream. The particles absorb the radiation and because of their very large surface area, quickly release the heat to the surrounding fluid stream. The fluid stream particle mixture is heated until the particles vaporize. The fluid stream is then allowed to expand in, for example, a gas turbine to produce mechanical energy. In an aspect of the present invention properly sized particles need not be vaporized prior to the entrance of the fluid stream into the turbine, as the particles will not damage the turbine blades. In yet another aspect of the invention, conventional fuel injectors are provided to inject fuel into the fluid stream to maintain the proper temperature and pressure of the fluid stream should the source of radiant energy be interrupted. In yet another aspect of the invention, an apparatus is provided which includes means for providing a hot fluid stream having hot particles disbursed therein which can radiate energy, means for providing a cooler fluid stream having cooler particles disbursed therein, which particles can absorb radiant energy and means for passing the hot fluid stream adjacent the cooler fluid stream to warm the cooler fluid and cooler particles by the radiation from the hot fluid and hot particles. 5 figs.

The returns to bidding firms in corporate takeovers: splitting up the pie  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In this paper, we examined the impact of ownership concentration in target firms on the returns to shareholders of bidding firms. In this research, we found that shareholders of bidding earn statistically significant positive abnormal returns surrounding takeover announcements. In addition, we found bidder returns of 4% over the event-window [?20, +20]. We showed that the degree of ownership concentration in target firms measured by the Herfindahl-concentration index significantly and positively affects the returns to bidding firms. These findings are consistent with the predictions of Grossman and Hart (1980), Bagnoli and Lipman (1988) and Holmstrom and Nalebuff (1992) takeover models.

Aussie LNG players target NE Asia in expansion bid  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Australia's natural gas players, keen to increase their presence in world liquefied natural gas trade, see Asia as their major LNG market in the decades to come. That's despite the fact that two spot cargoes of Australian Northwest Shelf LNG were shipped to Europe during the last 12 months and more are likely in 1994. Opportunities for growth are foreseen within the confines of the existing Northwest Shelf gas project for the rest of the 1990s. But the main focus for potential new grassroots project developers and expansions of the existing LNG plant in Australia is the expected shortfall in contract volumes of LNG to Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan during 2000--2010. Traditionally the price of crude oil has been used as a basis for calculating LNG prices. This means the economics of any new 21st century supply arrangements are delicately poised because of the current low world oil prices, a trend the market believes is likely to continue. In a bid to lessen the effect of high initial capital outlays and still meet projected demand using LNG from new projects and expansion of the existing plant, Australia's gas producers are working toward greater cooperation with prospective Asian buyers.

Review of demand-side bidding programs: Impacts, costs, and cost-effectiveness  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In December 1987, Central Maine Power (CMP) instituted the first competitive bidding program that allowed developers to propose installation of conservation measures. Since then, about 30 utilities in 14 states have solicited bids from energy service companies (ESCOs) and customers to reduce energy demand in residential homes and in commercial and industrial facilities. Interest in the use of competitive procurement mechanisms for demand-side resources continues to grow. In this study, the authors build upon earlier work conducted by LBL in collaboration with others (Goldman and Busch 1992; Wolcott and Goldman 1992). They have developed methods to compare bid prices and program costs among utilities. They also characterize approaches used by utilities and developers to allocate risks associated with DSM resources based on their review of a large sample of signed contracts. These contracts are analyzed in some detail because they provide insights into the evolving roles and responsibilities of utilities, customers, and third party contractors in providing demand-side management (DSM) services. The analysis also highlights differences in the allocation of risks between traditional utility rebate programs and DSM bidding programs.

Central solar energy receiver  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

An improved tower-mounted central solar energy receiver for heating air drawn through the receiver by an induced draft fan. A number of vertically oriented, energy absorbing, fin-shaped slats are radially arranged in a number of concentric cylindrical arrays on top of the tower coaxially surrounding a pipe having air holes through which the fan draws air which is heated by the slats which receive the solar radiation from a heliostat field. A number of vertically oriented and wedge-shaped columns are radially arranged in a number of concentric cylindrical clusters surrounding the slat arrays. The columns have two mirror-reflecting sides to reflect radiation into the slat arrays and one energy absorbing side to reduce reradiation and reflection from the slat arrays.

Evaluation of Orange and Rockland Utilities, Inc.`s competitive bidding program for demand-side resources. Final report  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The process evaluation reports on the implementation of Orange and Rockland Utilities demand-side bidding program in New York State during 1991 and 1992. The program is implemented by two energy service companies in Orange and rockland`s New York State service territory. The process evaluation methodology included interviews with utility staff (3), energy service company staff (2), and participating (6) and nonparticipating (7) utility customers. The two energy service companies had enrolled 14 customers in the program by summer 1992. One company had achieved 90% of their 2.75 MW bid and the other had achieved less than 90% of their 6.9 MW bid. Critical factors in success were determination of a reasonable bid amount for the market and marketing to the appropriate customers. Customers most interested in the program included those with limited access to capital and medium-sized firms with poor cash flows, particularly schools and hospitals. The findings also show that due to the incentive structure and associated need for substantial customer contributions, lighting measures dominate all installations. Customers, however, were interested in the potential savings and six of the nonparticipants chose to either install measures on their own or enroll in the utility`s rebate program.

Risk-based bidding of large electric utilities using Information Gap Decision Theory considering demand response  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The present study presents a new risk-constrained bidding strategy formulation of large electric utilities in, presence of demand response programs. The considered electric utility consists of generation facilities, along with a retailer part, which is responsible for supplying associated demands. The total profit of utility comes from participating in day-ahead energy markets and selling energy to corresponding consumers via retailer part. Different uncertainties, such as market price, affect the profit of the utility. Therefore, here, attempts are made to make use of Information Gap Decision Theory (IGDT) to obtain a robust scheduling method against the unfavorable deviations of the market prices. Implementing demand response programs sounds attractive for the consumers through providing some incentives in one hand, and it improves the risk hedging capability of the utility on the other hand. The proposed method is applied to a test system and effect of demand response programs is investigated on the total profit of the utility.

Dosimetry of internal exposure of respiratory tract to incorporated plutonium  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

ICRP Publication 66 that had adopted a new approach to estimate dose to lungs and an extrathoracic region based on a revised human respiratory tract model was considered by the authors to address some aspects related to application of ICRP 66 in radiation safety practices. Comparison of committed equivalent doses received to the lungs following acute inhalation of plutonium-239 aerosols with different solubility and particle size calculated as per previous ICRP 30 approach (averaging of energy imparted by radiation to the organ over the mass of the organ) and new ICRP 66 concept (detriment-weighted dose resulting from irradiation of specific cells at risk in the lung) showed that these dose estimates are disparate. At the same time, ICRP 66 approach, being more biologically reasonable, still requires additional studies to validate risk apportionment among tissues in the lungs. Because ICRP 66 for the first time introduced a method to calculate internal radiation dose to the extrathoracic region, equivalent dose to this region following acute inhalation of different plutonium-239 aerosols was assessed in comparison with equivalent dose to the lungs. The relative contribution of the extrathoracic region to the effective dose turned out to be significant.

Respiratory tract infections in the military environment  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Military personnel fighting in contemporary battlefields as well as those participating in combat training are at risk of contracting respiratory infections. Epidemiological studies have demonstrated that soldiers deployed to the harsh environment have higher rates of newly reported respiratory symptoms than non-deployers. Acute respiratory diseases are the principle reason for outpatient treatment and hospitalization among military personnel, with an incidence exceeding that of the adult civilian population by up to three-fold. Adenoviruses, influenza A and B viruses, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, coronaviruses and rhinoviruses have been identified as the main causes of acute respiratory infections among the military population. Although infective pathogens have been extensively studied, a significant proportion of illnesses (over 40%) have been due to unknown causative agents. Other health hazards, which can lead to respiratory illnesses among troops, are extreme air temperatures, desert dust, emissions from burn pits, industrial pollutants, and airborne contaminants originating from degraded soil. Limited diagnostic capabilities, especially inside the area of operations, make it difficult to accurately estimate the exact number of respiratory diseases in the military environment. The aim of the study was to discuss the occurrence of respiratory tract infections in army personnel, existing risk factors and preventive measures.

Solar central receiver in perspective  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The variation in the energy costs of solar central receiver systems as a function of power level, receiver geometry, heliostat size, and heliostat canting option are presented. The results were obtained using a new version of the DELSOL computer model. A broad minimum in the cost of thermal energy at the base of the tower is observed in systems with power levels from 10 MW/sub t/ to over 1000 MW/sub t/. In addition, this power range can be served by a single heliostat design.

Estimation of vocal?tract area function from lip impulse response based on lossy vocal?tract digital filter model  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A method for estimating vocal?tract area function from lip impulse response based on lossy vocal?tract digital filter model is provided. Previous methods of lip impulse response [M. M. Sondhi and J. R. Resnick 73 9851002 (1983)] determines the area function from impulse response measured at lips by using the incident signal excited outside the oral cavity. This method is sensitive to the noise of measured impulse response. An alternative method [M. Honda and T. Mochida Proc. 1st ETRW?SPM 167170 (1996)] is advantageous for accurate estimation under noisy acoustic condition based on the vocal?tract digital filter model that optimizes the M sections of areas by using the impulse response longer than M samples. In this method however the vocal?tract model is based on the transmission line that treats the effect of loss in simplified form. The new method proposed in this study applies a mixture model of the lossless distributed circuit and the lumped circuit accounting for effects such as viscous loss heat conduction loss and loss due to wall vibration. The results on acoustic measurements have shown that the new method has better performance over the old method using optimization scheme based on simplified transmission line model.

Evaluation of heliostat field/receiver configurations  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This report evaluates and compares north heliostat field/cavity receiver configurations and surround heliostat field/external receiver configurations. The receiver coolants are molten nitrate salts and liquid sodium. Both field/receiver configurations use molten salt thermal storage; the sodium receiver is thermally connected to thermal storage by a sodium-to-salt heat exchanger. The heliostat filed size is fixed at 1,000,000 square meters of reflective area, and the delivered molten salt temperature is fixed at 566/sup 0/C. The delivered thermal power varies from 500 to 600 MW/sub t/, depending on the overall system efficiency. The generic north heliostat field/cavity receiver configurations were found to be 6 to 10 percent efficient than a generic surround field/external receiver configuration. There was little or no difference found in the transient performance of a molten salt receiver compared to a sodium receiver connected to a sodium-to-salt heat exchanger. Four configurations were of particular interest: (1) a north heliostat field/single cavity molten salt receiver, (2) a surround heliostat field/external cylinder molten salt receiver, (3) a surround heliostat field/external cylinder liquid sodium receiver, and (4) a north heliostat field/single cavity liquid sodium receiver. It was found that the surround field/liquid sodium external receiver configuration may provide energy at a 14 percent lower levelized energy cost than a north field/molten salt cavity receiver configuration. However, the cost advantage of the surround field/liquid sodium external receiver is not conclusive because of uncertainties in system component costs.

Liver and biliary tract cancer among chemical workers  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A recent cohort mortality study of male, hourly wage employees of a large Michigan chemical production and research facility had found a greater than expected number of deaths coded to liver and biliary tract cancer. In response, an additional investigation was then undertaken of the 44 liver and biliary tract cancer deaths observed between 1940 and 1982. A random sample (N = 1,888) of subjects was selected from the total cohort (N = 21,437) to serve as referents. Company work history records were used to classify cases and referents by work area assignment and potential for exposure to 11 selected chemical agents which have been shown to produce cancer of the liver or biliary passages in experimental animals. Statistically significant associations in both positive and negative directions were found for several work areas within the facility. A suggestive association was found for vinyl chloride monomer, based on five cases with presumed exposure.

Quantum Bidding in Bridge  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Quantum methods allow us to reduce communication complexity of some computational tasks, with several separated partners, beyond classical constraints. Nevertheless, experimental demonstrations of this have thus far been limited to some abstract problems, far away from real-life tasks. We show here, and demonstrate experimentally, that the power of reduction of communication complexity can be harnessed to gain an advantage in a famous, immensely popular, card gamebridge. The essence of a winning strategy in bridge is efficient communication between the partners. The rules of the game allow only a specific form of communication, of very low complexity (effectively, one has strong limitations on the number of exchanged bits). Surprisingly, our quantum technique does not violate the existing rules of the game (as there is no increase in information flow). We show that our quantum bridge auction corresponds to a biased nonlocal Clauser-Horne-Shimony-Holt game, which is equivalent to a 2?1 quantum random access code. Thus, our experiment is also a realization of such protocols. However, this correspondence is not complete, which enables the bridge players to have efficient strategies regardless of the quality of their detectors.

Neurogenic period of ascending tract neurons in the upper lumbar spinal cord of the rat  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Although the neurogenic period for neurons in the lumbar spinal cord has been clearly established (Days 12 through 16 of gestation), it is not known when the neurogenesis of ascending tract neurons is completed within this period. The purpose of the present study was to determine the duration of the neurogenic period for projection neurons of the ascending tracts. To label neurons undergoing mitosis during this period, tritiated thymidine was administered to fetal rats on Embryonic (E) Days E13 through E16 of gestation. Ascending tract neurons of the lumbar cord were later (Postnatal Days 40-50) labeled in each animal with a retrograde tracer, Fluoro-Gold, applied at the site of a hemisection at spinal cord segment C3. Ascending tract neurons which were undergoing mitosis in the upper lumbar cord were double labeled, i.e., labeled with both tritiated thymidine and Fluoro-Gold. On Day E13, 89-92% of the ascending tract neurons were double labeled; on Day E14, 35-37%; and on Day E15, 1-4%. Results showed, then, that some ascending tract neurons were double labeled through Day E15 and were, therefore, proliferating in the final one-third of the neurogenic period. Ascending tract neurons proliferating on Day E15 were confined to laminae III, IV, V, and X and the nucleus dorsalis. Long tract neurons in the superficial dorsal horn (laminae I and II), on the other hand, were found to have completed neurogenesis on Day E14 of gestation. Results of the present study show that spinal neurogenesis of ascending projection neurons continues throughout most of the neurogenic period and does not completely follow the well-established ventral to dorsal gradient.

PABPN1 polyalanine tract deletion and long expansions modify its aggregation pattern and expression  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Expansions of a (GCN)10/polyalanine tract in the Poly(A) Binding Protein Nuclear 1 (PABPN1) cause autosomal dominant oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy (OPMD). In OPMD muscles, as in models, PABPN1 accumulates in intranuclear inclusions (INIs) whereas in other diseases caused by similar polyalanine expansions, the mutated proteins have been shown to abnormally accumulate in the cytoplasm. This study presents the impact on the subcellular localization of PABPN1 produced by large expansions or deletion of its polyalanine tract. Large tracts of more than 24 alanines result in the nuclear accumulation of PABPN1 in SFRS2-positive functional speckles and a significant decline in cell survival. These large expansions do not cause \\{INIs\\} formation nor do they lead to cytoplasmic accumulation. Deletion of the polyalanine tract induces the formation of aggregates that are located on either side and cross the nuclear membrane, highlighting the possible role of the N-terminal polyalanine tract in PABPN1 nucleo-cytoplasmic transport. We also show that even though five other proteins with polyalanine tracts tend to aggregate when over-expressed they do not co-aggregate with PABPN1 INIs. This study presents the first experimental evidence that there may be a relative loss of function in OPMD by decreasing the availability of PABPN1 through an INI-independent mechanism.

Solar central receiver heliostat reflector assembly  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

A heliostat reflector assembly for a solar central receiver system comprises a light-weight, readily assemblable frame which supports a sheet of stretchable reflective material and includes mechanism for selectively applying tension to and positioning the sheet to stretch it to optical flatness. The frame is mounted on and supported by a pipe pedestal assembly that, in turn, is installed in the ground. The frame is controllably driven in a predetermined way by a light-weight drive system so as to be angularly adjustable in both elevation and azimuth to track the sun and efficiently continuously reflect the sun's rays to a focal zone, i.e. central receiver, which forms part of a solar energy utilization system, such as a solar energy fueled electrical power generation system. The frame may include a built-in system for testing for optical flatness of the reflector. The preferable geometric configuration of the reflector is octagonal; however, it may be other shapes, such as hexagonal, pentagonal or square. Several different embodiments of means for tensioning and positioning the reflector to achieve optical flatness are disclosed. The reflector assembly is based on the stretch frame concept which provides an extremely light-weight, simple, low-cost reflector assembly that may be driven for positioning and tracking by a light-weight, inexpensive drive system.

Radiant energy receiver having improved coolant flow control means  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

An improved coolant flow control for use in radiant energy receivers of the type having parallel flow paths is disclosed. A coolant performs as a temperature dependent valve means, increasing flow in the warmer flow paths of the receiver, and impeding flow in the cooler paths of the receiver. The coolant has a negative temperature coefficient of viscosity which is high enough such that only an insignificant flow through the receiver is experienced at the minimum operating temperature of the receiver, and such that a maximum flow is experienced at the maximum operating temperature of the receiver. The valving is accomplished by changes in viscosity of the coolant in response to the coolant being heated and cooled. No remotely operated valves, comparators or the like are needed.

Vocal tract changes caused by phonation into a tube: A case study using computer tomography and finite-element modeling  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Phonation into a glass tube is a voice training and therapy method that leads to beneficial effects in voice production. It has not been known however what changes occur in the vocal tract during and after the phonation into a tube. This pilot study examined the vocal tract shape in a female subject before during and after phonation into a tube using computer tomography(CT). Three-dimensional finite-elementmodels (FEMs) of the vocal tract were derived from the CTimages and used to study changes in vocal tract input impedance. When phonating on vowel [a:] the data showed tightened velopharyngeal closure and enlarged cross-sectional areas of the oropharyngeal and oral cavities during and after the tube-phonation. FEM calculations revealed an increased input inertance of the vocal tract and an increased acoustic energy radiated out of the vocal tract after the tube-phonation. The results indicate that the phonation into a tube causes changes in the vocal tract which remain also when the tube is removed. These effects may help improving voice production in patients and voice professionals.

Numerical modeling of dish-Stirling reflux solar receivers  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Using reflux solar receivers to collect solar energy for dish-Stirling electric power generation systems is currently being investigated by several organizations, including Sandia National Laboratories, Albuquerque, New Mexico. In support of this program, Sandia has developed two numerical models describing the energy transfer within and thermal performance of pool-boiler and heat-pipe receivers. Both models are applicable to axisymmetric geometries and they both consider the radiative and convective energy transfer within the receiver cavity, the conductive and convective energy transfer within the receiver cavity, the conductive and convective energy transfer from the receiver housing, and the energy transfer to the receiver working fluid. In these models, the radiative transfer within the receiver is analyzed using a two-band (solar and infrared) net-radiation formulation for enclosure radiation. Empirical convective correlations describe the convective heat transfer from the cavity to the surroundings. The primary difference between the models is the level of detail in modeling the heat conduction through the receiver walls. The more detailed model uses a two-dimensional finite control volume method, whereas the simpler model uses a one-dimensional thermal resistance approach. 20 refs., 7 figs., 2 tabs.

Differences in Brainstem Fiber Tract Response to Radiation: A Longitudinal Diffusion Tensor Imaging Study  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Purpose: To determine whether radiation-induced changes in white matter tracts are uniform across the brainstem. Methods and Materials: We analyzed serial diffusion tensor imaging data, acquired before radiation therapy and over 48 to 72 months of follow-up, from 42 pediatric patients (age 6-20 years) with medulloblastoma. FSL software (FMRIB, Oxford, UK) was used to calculate fractional anisotropy (FA) and axial, radial, and mean diffusivities. For a consistent identification of volumes of interest (VOIs), the parametric maps of each patient were transformed to a standard brain space (MNI152), on which we identified VOIs including corticospinal tract (CST), medial lemniscus (ML), transverse pontine fiber (TPF), and middle cerebellar peduncle (MCP) at the level of pons. Temporal changes of DTI parameters in VOIs were compared using a linear mixed effect model. Results: Radiation-induced white matter injury was marked by a decline in FA after treatment. The decline was often accompanied by decreased axial diffusivity, increased radial diffusivity, or both. This implied axonal damage and demyelination. We observed that the magnitude of the changes was not always uniform across substructures of the brainstem. Specifically, the changes in DTI parameters for TPF were more pronounced than in other regions (P<.001 for FA) despite similarities in the distribution of dose. We did not find a significant difference among CST, ML, and MCP in these patients (P>.093 for all parameters). Conclusions: Changes in the structural integrity of white matter tracts, assessed by DTI, were not uniform across the brainstem after radiation therapy. These results support a role for tract-based assessment in radiation treatment planning and determination of brainstem tolerance.

Tract based spatial statistics in multiple system atrophy: A comparison between clinical subtypes  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

AbstractObjective Using a novel method of tract-based spatial statistics (TBSS), this study aimed to investigate micro-structural white matter similarities and differences between the two MSA variants. Methods Diffusion tensor image data were acquired from 10 MSA-P, 15 MSA-C patients and 15 controls. Using TBSS, we performed pairwise comparison by examining the fractional anisotropy (FA), mean diffusivity, axial diffusivity (AD) and radial diffusivity (RD) maps of the white matter tract. Clusters showing diffusivity abnormalities were used as region of interests for correlation analysis. Results Both in MSA-C and MSA-P, we detected significantly decreased FA values in bilateral corticospinal tract (CST) and right anterior thalamic radiation (ATR), increased RD values in bilateral CST, which correlated significantly with clinical severity. Direct comparison of two variants showed higher AD values of superior longitudinal fasciculus (SLF) in MSA-P than in MSA-C. Conclusions These findings indicate that patients with MSA-C and MSA-P share similar diffusivity abnormalities in the bilateral CST and right ATR. Higher AD values of SLF in MSA-P than in MSA-C might be a reason for faster functional deterioration in MSA-P than in MSA-C.

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This document sets forth the final report for a financial assistance award for the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) to enhance coordination between the building operators and power system operators in terms of demand-side responses to Location Based Marginal Pricing (LBMP). Potential benefits of this project include improved power system reliability, enhanced environmental quality, mitigation of high locational prices within congested areas, and the reduction of market barriers for demand-side market participants. NARUC, led by its Committee on Energy Resources and the Environment (ERE), actively works to promote the development and use of energy efficiency and clean distributive energy policies within the framework of a dynamic regulatory environment. Electric industry restructuring, energy shortages in California, and energy market transformation intensifies the need for reliable information and strategies regarding electric reliability policy and practice. NARUC promotes clean distributive generation and increased energy efficiency in the context of the energy sector restructuring process. NARUC, through ERE's Subcommittee on Energy Efficiency, strives to improve energy efficiency by creating working markets. Market transformation seeks opportunities where small amounts of investment can create sustainable markets for more efficient products, services, and design practices.

Wide-band coherent receiver development for enhanced surveillance  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has been developing advanced coherent IR heterodyne receivers for plasma diagnostics in fusion reactors for over 20 years. Recent progress in wide band IR detectors and high speed electronics has significantly enhanced the measurement capabilities of coherent receivers. In addition, developments in new HgCdTe and quantum well IR photodetector (QWIP) focal plane arrays are providing the possibility of both active and passive coherent imaging. In this paper the authors discuss the implications of these new enabling technologies to the IR remote sensing community for enhanced surveillance. Coherent receivers, as opposed to direct or thermal detection, provide multiple dimensions of information about a scene or target in a single detector system. Combinations of range, velocity, temperature, and chemical species information are all available from a coherent heterodyne receiver. They present laboratory data showing measured noise equivalent power (NEP) of new QWIP detectors with heterodyne bandwidths greater than 7 GHz. For absorption measurements, a wide band coherent receiver provides the capability of looking between CO{sub 2} lines at off-resonance peaks and thus the measurement of lines normally inaccessible with conventional heterodyne or direct detection systems. Also described are differential absorption lidar (DIAL) and Doppler laboratory measurements using an 8 x 8 HgCdTe focal plane array demonstrating the snapshot capability of coherent receiver detector arrays for enhanced chemical plume and moving hardbody capture. Finally they discuss a variety of coherent receiver configurations that can suppress (or enhance) sensitivity of present active remote sensing systems to speckle, glint, and other measurement anomalies.

Wide-band heterodyne receiver development for effluent measurements  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has been developing advanced infrared heterodyne receivers for plasma diagnostics in fusion reactors for over 20 years. Passive heterodyne radiometry in the LWIR region of the spectrum has historically been restricted by HgCdTe (MCT) detector technology to receiver bandwidths of only 2 GHz. Given typical atmospheric line widths of approximately 3 GHz, a CO{sub 2} (or isotope) laser local oscillator with an average line spacing of 50 GHz, and an MCT detector, only chemical species whose absorptions fall directly on top of laser lines can be measured. Thus, with traditional narrow-band heterodyne radiometry, much of the LWIR spectrum is missed and the less complex direct detection DIAL has been the preferred technique in remote sensing applications. Wide-band heterodyne receivers offer significant improvements in remote measurement capability. Progress at the Institute for Microstructural Sciences (IMS) at National Research Council of Canada and at ORNL in wide-band quantum-well infrared photodetectors (QIPs) and receivers is significantly enhancing the bandwidth capabilities of heterodyne radiometers. ORNL recently made measurements in the lab using QWIPs developed at IMS that demonstrate heterodyne quantum efficiencies of 5% with a heterodyne bandwidth of 7 GHz. The path forward indicates that > 10% heterodyne quantum efficiencies and 30-GHz bandwidths are achievable with current QWIP technology. With a chopped, 30-GHz passive heterodyne receiver, a much larger portion of the LWIR spectrum can now be covered. One potential advantage of wide-band heterodyne receivers for effluent measurements is to dramatically reduce the number of laser lines needed to characterize and distinguish multiple chemical species of interest. In the following paper, the authors discuss this and other implications of these new technologies to the characterization of effluents using both passive heterodyne radiometry and thermo-luminescence.

ErbB receptors in the biology and pathology of the aerodigestive tract  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The most common sites of malignancies in the aerodigestive tract include the lung, head and neck and the esophagus. Esophageal adenocarcinomas (EA), esophageal squamous cell carcinomas (ESCC), and squamous cell carcinomas of the head and neck (SCCHN) are the primary focus of this review. Traditional treatment for aerodigestive tract cancers includes primary chemoradiotherapy (CRT) or surgical resection followed by radiation (or CRT). Recent developments in treatment have focused increasingly on molecular targeting strategies including cetuximab (a monoclonal antibody against epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)). Cetuximab was FDA approved in 2006 for treatment of SCCHN, underscoring the importance of understanding the biology of these malignancies. EGFR is a member of the ErbB family of growth factor receptor tyrosine kinases. The major pathways activated by ErbB receptors include Ras/Raf/MAPK; PI3K/AKT; PLC{gamma} and STATs, all of which lead to the transcription of target genes that may contribute to aerodigestive tumor progression. This review explores the expression of ErbB receptors in EA, ESCC and SCCHN and the signaling pathways of EGFR in SCCHN.

Power generation considerations in a solar biomodal receiver  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The Integrated Solar Upper Stage (ISUS), or solar bimodal stage provides both propulsive thrust for efficient orbital transfer(s) and electrical power generation for the spacecraft. The combined propulsive and power systems allow the solar bimodal system to effectively compete for a variety of missions. Once on station, thermionic converters are used to supply continuous electrical power to the satellite, even during periods when the spacecraft is in the Earth`s shadow. The key to continuous power supply is thermal energy storage. The ISUS propulsion system also benefits through the use of thermal storage. By utilizing a graphite receiver, large amounts of sensible heat can be stored for later power generation. Waste heat is radiated to space through the use of heat pipes. Clearly, the graphite mass must be minimized without sacrificing electrical power capability. Voltage and current characteristics are carefully designed to operate within acceptable ranges. The detailed design of the receiver/absorber/converter (RAC) power system must meet these requirements with as little impact to the remainder of the bimodal system as possible. This paper addresses the key design considerations of a solar bimodal receiver as a power plant. Factors including the thermal storage and heat transfer from the graphite receiver to the thermionic converters, the support structures, electrical insulation and converter string design will be discussed.

Linear Fresnel Collector Receiver: Heat Loss and Temperatures  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract For design and component specification of a Linear Fresnel Collector (LFC) cavity receiver, the prediction of temperature distribution and heat loss is of great importance. In this paper we present a sensitivity analysis for a range of geometry and material parameters. For the LFC receiver analysis we use two models developed at Fraunhofer ISE. One is a detailed model, combining the spatial distribution of reflected radiation via ray tracing with detailed convective simulations through computational fluid dynamics. The second one is a fast algorithm based on a thermal resistance model. It is applying a similar methodology as the well-known model for vacuum absorber, enhancing an absorber tube model by parameters describing the influence of the secondary mirror and cover glass. The thermal resistance model is described in detail. Obtained results indicate a significant effect of the secondary mirror temperature on heat loss for specific geometries.

Central Receiver Plant evaluation: (2) THEMIS collector subsystem evaluation  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This report is part of the evaluation work carried out at Ecole Centrale on central receiver plants. The THEMIS collector subsystem is evaluated with emphasis given to the energy performance problems. The collector subsystem, the heliostat, and the operation modes are described. The mechanisms which contribute to the energy losses of the collector subsystem are discussed individually. Heliostat availability, reflectivity, geometrical effects (mirror shadowing and blocking, cosine factor, tower shadowing), beam focusing quality, beam pointing, spillage, propagation losses in the atmosphere between the mirrors and the receiver are successively evaluated. The overall collector efficiency is then estimated from two different points of view. The theoretical performance showing the physical limitation of the system, and the actual performance based on real experimental results, are separately discussed. The electricity consumption of the heliostat field is examined for plant parasitics analysis. The maintenance problems and the lessons learned on hardware behavior at the THEMIS site are also discussed. 19 refs., 7 figs.; 24 tabs.

Novel calibration system with sparse wires for CMB polarization receivers  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

B-modes in the cosmic microwave background (CMB) polarization is a smoking gun signature of the inflationary universe. To achieve better sensitivity to this faint signal, CMB polarization experiments aim to maximize the number of detector elements, resulting in a large focal plane receiver. Detector calibration of the polarization response becomes essential. It is extremely useful to be able to calibrate 'simultaneously' all detectors on the large focal plane. We developed a novel calibration system that rotates a large 'sparse' grid of metal wires, in front of and fully covering the field of view of the focal plane receiver. Polarized radiation is created via the reflection of ambient temperature from the wire surface. Since the detector has a finite beam size, the observed signal is smeared according to the beam property. The resulting smeared polarized radiation has a reasonable intensity (a few Kelvin or less) compared to the sky temperature ({approx}10 K observing condition). The system played a successful role for receiver calibration of QUIET, a CMB polarization experiment located in the Atacama desert in Chile. The successful performance revealed that this system is applicable to other experiments based on different technologies, e.g. TES bolometers.

Power efficiency for very high temperature solar thermal cavity receivers  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

This invention is an improved solar energy cavity receiver for exposing materials and components to high temperatures. The receiver includes a housing having an internal reflective surface defining a cavity and having an inlet for admitting solar radiation thereto. A photothermal absorber is positioned in the cavity to receive radiation from the inlet. A reflective baffle is positioned between the absorber and the inlet to severely restrict the re-radiation of energy through the inlet. The front surface of the baffle defines a narrow annulus with the internal reflective surface of the housing. The front surface of the baffle is contoured to reflect incoming radiation onto the internal surface of the housing, from which it is reflected through the annulus and onto the front surface of the absorber. The back surface of the baffle intercepts infrared radiation from the front of the absorber. With this arrangement, a high percentage of the solar power input is retained in the cavity; thus, high internal temperatures are attained.

High-Efficiency Receivers for Supercritical Carbon Dioxide Cycles  

Broader source: Energy.gov [DOE]

This fact sheet describes a project awarded under the DOE's 2012 SunShot Concentrating Solar Power R&D award program. The team, led by Brayton Energy, aims to develop and demonstrate a low-cost, high-efficiency solar receiver that is compatible with s-CO2 cycles and modern thermal storage subsystems. Supercritical CO2 Brayton-cycle engines have the potential to increase conversion efficiency to more than 50%. This high conversion efficiency drives down the cost of the supporting solar field, tower, and thermal storage systems, which could significantly reduce the lifetime costs of a CSP system to achieve the SunShot goal.

A final report on the Phase 1 testing of a molten-salt cavity receiver  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This report describes the design, construction, and testing of a solar central receiver using molten nitrate salt as a heat exchange fluid. Design studies for large commercial plants (30--100 MWe) have shown molten salt to be an excellent fluid for solar thermal plants as it allows for efficient thermal storage. Plant design studies concluded that an advanced receiver test was required to address uncertainties not covered in prior receiver tests. This recommendation led to the current test program managed by Sandia National Laboratories for the US Department of Energy. The 4.5 MWt receiver is installed at Sandia National Laboratories' Central Receiver Test Facility in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The receiver incorporates features of large commercial receiver designs. This report describes the receiver's configuration, heat absorption surface (design and sizing), the structure and supporting systems, and the methods for control. The receiver was solar tested during a six-month period at the Central Receiver Test Facility in Albuquerque, NM. The purpose of the testing was to characterize the operational capabilities of the receiver under a number of solar operating and stand-by conditions. This testing consisted of initial check-out of the systems, followed by steady-state performance, transient receiver operation, receiver operation in clouds, receiver thermal loss testing, receiver start-up operation, and overnight thermal conditioning tests. This report describes the design, fabrication, and results of testing of the receiver.

Experimental validation of different modeling approaches for solid particle receivers.  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Solid particle receivers have the potential to provide high-temperature heat for advanced power cycles, thermochemical processes, and thermal storage via direct particle absorption of concentrated solar energy. This paper presents two different models to evaluate the performance of these systems. One model is a detailed computational fluid dynamics model using FLUENT that includes irradiation from the concentrated solar flux, two-band re-radiation and emission within the cavity, discrete-phase particle transport and heat transfer, gas-phase convection, wall conduction, and radiative and convective heat losses. The second model is an easy-to-use and fast simulation code using Matlab that includes solar and thermal radiation exchange between the particle curtain, cavity walls, and aperture, but neglects convection. Both models were compared to unheated particle flow tests and to on-sun heating tests. Comparisons between measured and simulated particle velocities, opacity, particle volume fractions, particle temperatures, and thermal efficiencies were found to be in good agreement. Sensitivity studies were also performed with the models to identify parameters and modifications to improve the performance of the solid particle receiver.

The FORTE receiver and sub-band triggering unit  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The FORTE payload receiver and trigger unit represent a significant advance over the currently flying BLACKBEARD payload aboard the ALEXIS satellite. Not only is the polarization sensitive antenna array massive compared to the BLACKBEARD monopole, but the event triggering scheme is completely different. Electromagnetic pulses (EWs) are dispersed when they pass through the ionosphere creating a chirped frequency signal which can be helpful in discriminating between natural and man-made signals. Payloads designed to digitize and store the RF signatures of these signals must include sophisticated triggering circuitry to select events of interest and prevent false alarms from wasting the available memory storage resources. The FORTE wideband receiver tunes from 20 to 320 MHz with eight sub-band trigger channels distributed across the 20 MHz IF bandwidth. The conditions which must be satisfied to generate an event trigger are processor controlled. Early testing of the prototype indicates an ability to reliably trigger on chirped RF signals several dB below the noise level. FORTE is scheduled to be launched with a Pegasus XL vehicle in late 1995.

Advanced Thermal Storage for Central Receivers with Supercritical Coolants  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The principal objective of the study is to determine if supercritical heat transport fluids in a central receiver power plant, in combination with ceramic thermocline storage systems, offer a reduction in levelized energy cost over a baseline nitrate salt concept. The baseline concept uses a nitrate salt receiver, two-tank (hot and cold) nitrate salt thermal storage, and a subcritical Rankine cycle. A total of 6 plant designs were analyzed, as follows: Plant Designation Receiver Fluid Thermal Storage Rankine Cycle Subcritical nitrate salt Nitrate salt Two tank nitrate salt Subcritical Supercritical nitrate salt Nitrate salt Two tank nitrate salt Supercritical Low temperature H2O Supercritical H2O Two tank nitrate salt Supercritical High temperature H2O Supercritical H2O Packed bed thermocline Supercritical Low temperature CO2 Supercritical CO2 Two tank nitrate salt Supercritical High temperature CO2 Supercritical CO2 Packed bed thermocline Supercritical Several conclusions have been drawn from the results of the study, as follows: 1) The use of supercritical H2O as the heat transport fluid in a packed bed thermocline is likely not a practical approach. The specific heat of the fluid is a strong function of the temperatures at values near 400 C, and the temperature profile in the bed during a charging cycle is markedly different than the profile during a discharging cycle. 2) The use of supercritical CO2 as the heat transport fluid in a packed bed thermocline is judged to be technically feasible. Nonetheless, the high operating pressures for the supercritical fluid require the use of pressure vessels to contain the storage inventory. The unit cost of the two-tank nitrate salt system is approximately $24/kWht, while the unit cost of the high pressure thermocline system is nominally 10 times as high. 3) For the supercritical fluids, the outer crown temperatures of the receiver tubes are in the range of 700 to 800 C. At temperatures of 700 C and above, intermetallic compounds can precipitate between, and within, the grains of nickel alloys. The precipitation leads to an increase in tensile strength, and a decrease in ductility. Whether the proposed tube materials can provide the required low cycle fatigue life for the supercritical H2O and CO2 receivers is an open question. 4) A ranking of the plants, in descending order of technical and economic feasibility, is as follows: i) Supercritical nitrate salt and baseline nitrate salt: equal ratings ii) Low temperature supercritical H2O iii) Low temperature supercritical CO2 iv) High temperature supercritical CO2 v) High temperature supercritical H2O 5) The two-tank nitrate salt thermal storage systems are strongly preferred over the thermocline systems using supercritical heat transport fluids.

Environmental assessment for the transfer of the DP Road tract to the County of Los Alamos. Final document  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The purpose of an Environmental Assessment (EA) is to provide the DOE with sufficient evidence and analysis to determine whether to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) or a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI). Additional considerations (such as costs, timing, or non-environmental legal issues) that influence DOE decisions are not analyzed in this EA. As part of its initiative to fulfill its responsibilities to provide support for the County of Los Alamos (the County), in northern New Mexico, the US Department of Energy (DOE) proposes to transfer ownership of the undeveloped, so called, DP Road property to the County. Transfer of this tract would permanently reduce the size of Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) by approximately 0.1%. Approximately 12 hectares (28 acres) would be changed from an undeveloped to a developed status. This would result in an equivalent loss of wildlife habitat. A hypothetical accident was analyzed that evaluated potential radiological dose to the public at the DP Road tract from LANL operations. The dose to the hypothetical worker population of 450 new employees could result in an increase of approximately three latent cancer fatalities in the population. The DOE finds that there would be no significant impact from proceeding with the transfer of the 28-acre tract for development and use as a business park or for light industrial purposes.

Radio-transparent multi-layer insulation for radiowave receivers  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In the field of radiowave detection, enlarging the receiver aperture to enhance the amount of light detected is essential for greater scientific achievements. One challenge in using radio transmittable apertures is keeping the detectors cool. This is because transparency to thermal radiation above the radio frequency range increases the thermal load. In shielding from thermal radiation, a general strategy is to install thermal filters in the light path between aperture and detectors. However, there is difficulty in fabricating metal mesh filters of large diameters. It is also difficult to maintain large diameter absorptive-type filters in cold because of their limited thermal conductance. A technology that maintains cold conditions while allowing larger apertures has been long-awaited. We propose radio-transparent multi-layer insulation (RT-MLI) composed from a set of stacked insulating layers. The insulator is transparent to radio frequencies, but not transparent to infrared radiation. The basic idea for cooling is similar to conventional multi-layer insulation. It leads to a reduction in thermal radiation while maintaining a uniform surface temperature. The advantage of this technique over other filter types is that no thermal links are required. As insulator material, we used foamed polystyrene; its low index of refraction makes an anti-reflection coating unnecessary. We measured the basic performance of RT-MLI to confirm that thermal loads are lowered with more layers. We also confirmed that our RT-MLI has high transmittance to radiowaves, but blocks infrared radiation. For example, RT-MLI with 12 layers has a transmittance greater than 95% (lower than 1%) below 200 GHz (above 4 THz). We demonstrated its effects in a system with absorptive-type filters, where aperture diameters were 200 mm. Low temperatures were successfully maintained for the filters. We conclude that this technology significantly enhances the cooling of radiowave receivers, and is particularly suitable for large-aperture systems. This technology is expected to be applicable to various fields, including radio astronomy, geo-environmental assessment, and radar systems.

A linear, time-varying simulation of the respiratory tract system  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

These results show that regional deposition efficiencies of inhaled particles are highly dependent on the level of physical activity in all the spectrum of thermodynamic and aerodynamic aerosol particle sizes; also it was shown that for particles in the aerodynamic size range, the values of regional deposition efficiencies at the inner regions of the lung are highly dependent on age. In addition, the shape of regional deposition efficiency curves as a function of particle size have a similar behavior for all ages; thus, any variation of the airway geometry and respiratory physiological parameters such as tidal volumes and breathing frequencies due to age difference do not cause a change in the fundamental mechanisms of deposition. Thus, for all the cases of physical activity and age dependency, the deposition of ultrafine aerosol particles is highly enhanced by diffusive processes in all regions of the respiratory tract, and for very large aerosol size particles this behavior is repeated again due to impaction and sedimentation mechanisms. Although the results presented at this work, are the result of computer simulations based on different sources of experimental data, the structure of the computer simulation code BIODEP is flexible enough to the acquisition of any kind of new experimental information in terms of biokinetic analysis and regional deposition parameters. In addition, since the design of BIODEP was intended for easy access to the users, then with exception of the subroutine DIVPAG, at this moment, the modular design of BIODEP using FORTRAN 77 allows the implementation of all the subroutines of BIODEP to be used in a interactive mode with any microcomputer.

June 12, 2007 June 12, 2007 NETL Inventors Receive Patent for Sensor Technology Novel Detector Improves Performance of State-of-the-Art Gas Turbines MORGANTOWN, WV - Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) have been awarded a patent for an invention that detects lean blow-off in gas turbines. The new invention represents a step toward realizing low-emission, fuel-flexible gas turbines-a step that will promote air quality and U.S. energy security by allowing power plants to operate cleanly and efficiently on domestic fuels. Many gas combustion systems, such as stationary gas turbines, operate on some form of lean premix combustion. In this method of combustion, fuel and air are mixed upstream of the combustion zone at low, or lean, fuel conditions. The temperature is kept low, which limits the formation of nitrous oxides (NOx)-pollutants which contribute to acid rain, ground-level ozone, and global warming.

Receiver Operating Characteristic Analysis for Detecting Explosives-related Threats  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) are interested in developing a standardized testing procedure for determining the performance of candidate detection systems. This document outlines a potential method for judging detection system performance as well as determining if combining the information from a legacy system with a new system can signi????????cantly improve performance. In this document, performance corresponds to the Neyman-Pearson criterion applied to the Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) curves of the detection systems in question. A simulation was developed to investigate how the amount of data provided by the vendor in the form of the ROC curve e???????¤ects the performance of the combined detection system. Furthermore, the simulation also takes into account the potential e???????¤ects of correlation and how this information can also impact the performance of the combined system.

Etendue-matched two-stage concentrators with multiple receivers  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A possible way to concentrate sun light is by using a Fresnel reflector: a large number of small mirrors (called heliostats) that mimic the behavior of a large concentrator, replacing it. These heliostats can move to track the sun, keeping its light concentrated onto the receiver. Fresnel concentrators, however, may have important losses. If the heliostats are spaced from each other, some light will miss them and be lost. If the heliostats are close to each other, they will block part of each other's reflected light, also producing losses. One possible way to minimize these losses is to intersect two focusing Fresnel concentrators forming a Compact Linear Fresnel Reflector - CLFR. Although improving on a simple focusing Fresnel concentrator, these optics are still not optimal. Here new geometries for Fresnel reflectors are explored, minimizing their losses and increasing their concentration. This is achieved by changing the overall shape of the primary, making it a wave-shaped trough surface and/or by allowing for a variable size and shape of the heliostats as a function of the position in the heliostat field. These new Fresnel concentrators may also be combined with secondaries significantly improving their total concentration, which now approaches the theoretical maximum. (author)

Evaluation of fixed? versus variable?modulation treatment modes for charged?particle irradiation of the gastrointestinal tract  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The clinical usefulness of variable?modulation dose delivery of neon ion and proton beams over fixed?modulation beams is evaluated for several patients with tumors in the gastrointestinal tract by comparing dose distributions dose volume histograms and predictions of normal tissue complication probabilities calculated with the two methods. Both techniques provide excellent coverage of the target volume with neon ion and proton beams. The advantage of variable modulation is that less dose is delivered proximal to the target volume. For tumors in the gastrointestinal tract this implies that less dose is given to the liver gut kidneys and lungs. For the ten patients considered in this study variable?modulation reduced the total integral dose by an average of 17% for neon ion beams and by 18% for protons as compared to fixed?modulation. If the tumor volume is excluded the reduction in the integral dose to normal tissues ranged from 15% to 32% for neon ions and from 18% to 34% for proton beams. These gains are larger than those anticipated on the basis of an analytic study by Goitein and Chen [Med. Phys. 10 831840 (1983)] which predicted integral dose reductions of the order of 10% for protons and 14% for neon ions. They are also larger than those reported in a similar study by Urie and Goitein [Med. Phys. 16 593601 (1989)] for proton irradiation of skull?base tumors. This is probably because the tumors in the GI tract considered in this study were more irregularly shaped than Goitein and Chens analytic model assumes. The results of this study also suggest that due to increased sparing of normal tissues the number of different portal directions required to achieve a satisfactory treatment plan will be reduced for variable?modulation beam delivery systems. This implies that variable?modulation treatment plans will be easier to execute than current fixed?modulation plans.

THE APPLICATION OF FIXED AND RANDOM ERROR TO SHIPPER/RECEIVER DIFFERENCES  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In order to determine if a statistically significant difference exists between shipper and receiver measurements, a statistical combination of the shipper's and receiver's limit-of-error (LOE) is calculated to determine the shipper/receiver limit-of-error, LOES/R. The shipper's and receiver's LOE may possess random and systematic components. Depending on the interpretation of the systematic and random components, the determination of the LOES/R can be performed by several different calculational methods. These calculational methods and their associated underlying assumptions are reviewed in the context of the LANL shipper receiver program. This paper, by presenting the assumptions that form the basis of a site-specific shipper/receiver difference calculation, can assist those individuals responsible for calculating LOES/R.

Numerical study of heat loss from a non-evacuated receiver of a solar collector  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Heat loss from receivers of solar collectors is a major reason for drop in their efficiency. Receiver pipes enclosed in glass tubes with evacuated annulus show considerable reduction in heat losses. However, manufacturing and maintenance costs for such receivers are high. An inexpensive alternative is a similar receiver with non-evacuated annulus. This paper presents a numerical study of heat loss from a non-evacuated receiver typically used in parabolic trough collectors, generating moderate temperatures and designed particularly for process heat applications. In order to come closer to the realistic situation, rather than assuming uniform temperature distribution on it, receiver pipe temperature has been assumed to be varying along the surface. Sinusoidal and square wave functions are employed in modeling, since actual temperature distributions on solar receiver pipes are combinations of these two functions. Main goal of the paper is to optimize the design of the non-evacuated solar receiver for minimum heat loss, by using CFD technique. Also effects on heat loss from receivers due to different parameters like average temperature (Ta) of the pipe, non-uniformity in the temperature (?) along its surface, hour angle (?), denoting position of the sun in the sky and radius ratio (RR) of radius of receiver pipe to that of outer glass tube have been studied. It is seen that as non-uniformity in temperature distribution increases in both types of temperature distribution, heat losses from receiver pipes decrease up to 10%. Also as hour angle increases from 0 to 90, heat loss decreases by 20% in case of sinusoidal temperature distribution and 24% in case of square wave temperature distribution. The effect of radius ratio (RR) on heat loss has been studied. In present study, we found out that 1.375 is critical radius ratio for which heat losses from receiver are minimum

An optimized model and test of the China's first high temperature parabolic trough solar receiver  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The vacuum solar receiver is the key component of a parabolic trough solar plant, which plays a prominent role in the gross system efficiency. Recently, China's first high temperature vacuum receiver, Sanle-3 HCE, has been developed and produced by Southeast University and Sanle Electronic Group. Before being utilized in China's first parabolic trough solar plant, accurately estimating the thermal properties of this new receiver is important. This paper first establishes and optimizes a 1-D theoretical model at Matlab program to compute the receiver's major heat loss through glass envelope, and then systematically analyzes the major influence factors of heat loss. With the laboratorial steady state test stand, the heat losses of both good vacuum and non-vacuum Sanle-3 receivers were surveyed. Comparison shows the original 1-D model agrees with the ends covered test while remarkably deviating from end exposed test. For the purpose of identifying the influence of receiver's end to total heat loss, an additional 3-D model is built by CFD software to further investigate the different heat transfer processes of receiver's end components. The 3-D end model is verified by heating power and IR temperature distribution images in the test. Combining the optimized 1-D model with the new 3-D end model, the comparison with test data shows a good accordance. At the same time the heat loss curve and emittance curve of this new receiver are given and compared with those of several other existing receivers as references. (author)

Modeling and Analysis of Stress in High Temperature Molten Salt Trough Receivers  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract SkyFuel has investigated the stresses and deformations occurring in parabolic trough receivers operating at temperatures above 425C. Operating at these temperatures allows for direct molten salt storage and higher efficiency conversion from thermal to electric energy. However, at these temperatures, the typical stainless steels used in receiver construction are susceptible to chromium carbide precipitation. After the precipitation has occurred, the steel is vulnerable to intergranular corrosion, and the fatigue strength of the steel is reduced. Corrosion increases the stresses in the receiver walls, and the reduced fatigue strength lowers the stress limit where failure will occur. This paper presents the results of an analysis of these stresses and an evaluation of the receiver material at these operating temperatures. It is shown that parabolic trough receivers can be designed to mitigate the negative effects of chromium carbide precipitation and operate above 425C without risk of premature failure.

Reflux heat-pipe solar receiver for a Stirling dish-electric system  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The feasibility of competitive, modular bulk electric power from the sun is enhanced by the use of a reflux heat-pipe receiver to combine a Stirling engine with a paraboloidal dish concentrator. This combination represents a potential improvement over previous successful demonstrations of Stirling dish-electric technology in terms of enhanced performance, lower cost, and longer life. In the reflux (i.e. gravity assisted) heat-pipe receiver, concentrated solar radiation causes liquid sodium to evaporate, the vapor flows to the Stirling engine heaters where it condenses on the heater tubes. The condensate is returned to and distributed over the receiver by gravity (refluxing) and by capillary forces in a wick lining the receiver. It is essentially an adaptation of sodium heat pipe technology to the peculiar requirements of concentrated solar flux and provides many potential advantages over conventional tube receiver technology. This paper describes the preliminary design of a reflux heat-pipe solar receiver to match the STM4-120 variable swashplate Stirling engine to a Test Bed Concentrator at Sandia National Laboratories Distributed Receiver Test Facility. Performance analysis and other design considerations are presented and discussed.

Suction-recirculation device for stabilizing particle flows within a solar powered solid particle receiver  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

A suction-recirculation device for stabilizing the flow of a curtain of blackened heat absorption particles falling inside of a solar receiver with an open aperture. The curtain of particles absorbs the concentrated heat from a solar mirror array reflected up to the receiver on a solar power tower. External winds entering the receiver at an oblique angle can destabilize the particle curtain and eject particles. A fan and ductwork is located behind the back wall of the receiver and sucks air out through an array of small holes in the back wall. Any entrained particles are separated out by a conventional cyclone device. Then, the air is recirculated back to the top of the receiver by injecting the recycled air through an array of small holes in the receiver's ceiling and upper aperture front wall. Since internal air is recirculated, heat losses are minimized and high receiver efficiency is maintained. Suction-recirculation velocities in the range of 1-5 m/s are sufficient to stabilize the particle curtain against external wind speeds in excess of 10 m/s.

Method and means of transmitting and receiving broad-band unipolar, ultrasonic pulses for ultrasonic inspection  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

The invention includes a means and method for transmitting and receiving broadband, unipolar, ultrasonic pulses for ultrasonic inspection. The method comprises generating a generally unipolar ultrasonic stress pulse from a low impedance voltage pulse transmitter along a low impedance electrical pathway to an ultrasonic transducer, and receiving the reflected echo of the pulse by the transducer, converting it to a voltage signal, and passing it through a high impedance electrical pathway to an output. The means utilizes electrical components according to the method. The means and method allow a single transducer to be used in a pulse/echo mode, and facilitates alternatingly transmitting and receiving the broadband, unipolar, ultrasonic pulses. 25 figures.

As a student at Ramapo College of New Jersey in the environmental program, I have been evaluating the DSEIS for the re-licensing of Indian Point. When the EIS was generated in the late 1990s to begin the re-licensing process for Indian Point 2 and 3, there was no evaluation included in the document on the visual impacts the facility posed to the surrounding view shed. This includes the construction of the proposed cooling tower. The Indian Point facility is visible from several different elevations and vantage points along the Hudson River Valley, posing different impacts to the communities of varying income and minority populations surrounding Indian Point. In 1975 a study was done by Grant R. Jones evaluating the visual impacts of various cooling tower options at Indian Point Nuclear Facility. This study looked at the visual impacts from the proposed cooling tower, including the height of the concrete structure and varying size and thickness of the moisture plume produced. Both of these elements can be impacted with changes in weather and wind patterns. The study concluded that the construction of a cooling tower at Indian Point would have an even greater adverse affect on the view shed than the facility itself already posses (Jones, Ady & Gray, 1979). The mayor of the Village of Buchanan also expressed his

Virtual Array Receiver Options for 64-ary Pulse Position Modulation (PPM)  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

NASA is developing technology for 64 64-ary PPM using relatively large PPM time slots (10 ns) an and relatively simple d electronic electronic-based receiver logic. In this paper we describe photonic photonics-based receiver options for the case of much higher data rates and inherently shorter decision times. The receivers take the form of virtual ( array or quadrant) arrays with associated comparison tests. Previously we explored this concept for 4-ary and 16-ary PPM at data rates of up to 10 Gb/s. The lessons learned are applied to the case of 64 64-ary PPM at 1.25 Gb/s s. Various receiver designs are compare, and t the optimum design, based on virtual array he arrays, is s, evaluated using numerical simulations.

Measuring the Optical Performance of Evacuated Receivers via an Outdoor Thermal Transient Test: Preprint  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Modern parabolic trough solar collectors operated at high temperatures to provide the heat input to Rankine steam power cycles employ evacuated receiver tubes along the collector focal line. High performance is achieved via the use of a selective surface with a high absorptance for incoming short-wave solar radiation and a low emittance for outgoing long-wave infrared radiation, as well as the use of a hard vacuum to essentially eliminate convective and conductive heat losses. This paper describes a new method that determines receiver overall optical efficiency by exposing a fluid-filled, pre-cooled receiver to one sun outdoors and measuring the slope of the temperature curve at the point where the receiver temperature passes the glass envelope temperature (that is, the point at which there is no heat gain or loss from the absorber). This transient test method offers the potential advantages of simplicity, high accuracy, and the use of the actual solar spectrum.

A review of studies on central receiver solar thermal power plants  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The use of central receiver system (CRS) for electricity production promises to be one of the most viable options to replace fossil fuel power plants. Indeed, research and development activities on its basic subsystems have been booming rapidly since 1980s. This paper reviews the most important studies on the major components of central receiver solar thermal power plants including the heliostat field, the solar receiver and the power conversion system. After an overview of Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) technology, current status and applications of the \\{CRSs\\} are highlighted. Next, a detailed literature survey of existing design comprising optical, thermal and thermodynamic analysis, and techniques used to assess components have been arranged. This is followed by experimental investigations in which design concepts are established. The last section contains recent subsequent improvement of such key components as heliostat, receiver and hybrid solar gas turbine that are boosting in many R&D activities merging international collaboration during the past 30 years.

Development of a solar receiver for a high-efficiency thermionic/thermoelectric conversion system  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Solar energy is one of the most promising energy resources on Earth and in space, because it is clean and inexhaustible. Therefore, we have been developing a solar-powered high-efficiency thermionic-thermoelectric conversion system which combines a thermionic converter (TIC) with a thermoelectric converter (TEC) to use thermal energy efficiently and to achieve high efficiency conversion. The TIC emitter must uniformly heat up to 1800 K. The TIC emitter can be heated using thermal radiation from a solar receiver maintained at a high temperature by concentrated solar irradiation. A cylindrical cavity-type solar receiver constructed from graphite was designed and heated in a vacuum by using the solar concentrator at Tohoku University. The maximum temperature of the solar receiver enclosed by a molybdenum cup reached 1965 K, which was sufficiently high to heat a TIC emitter using thermal radiation from the receiver. 4 refs., 6 figs., 1 tab.

Alternative Designs of a High Efficiency, North-facing, Solid Particle Receiver  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Falling solid particle receivers can enable increased working-fluid temperatures for central receiver power plants, but will need to have high thermal efficiencies. This can increase power-cycle efficiencies and reduce thermal storage costs. A previous north- facing solid particle receiver (SPR) design was estimated to have a thermal efficiency of 72.3%. This design included a large aperture (17 m x 17 m), a slight downward facing nod (20), a high-sloping ceiling to accommodate the beam angles from the closest heliostats, and particles released near the back wall of the receiver. Receiver design modifications have been introduced to achieve a thermal efficiency of >90% as stated in the SunShot initiative. Design changes including a reduced aperture size, bottom lip on aperture, increased nod angle, deeper cavity, reduced ceiling slope angles, and more specular walls resulted in higher thermal efficiency designs. DELSOL was used to determine viable receiver dimensions, aperture sizes, and nod angles for a desired power output. The optimum receiver parameters were 10.63 m x 10.63 m aperture size, 50 nod angle, and a tower height of 194.7 m. The new aperture size had a higher concentration ratio and provided maximum incident power on the particles with minimum radiative loss. An aperture with a lip, nod angle of 50, and extended back wall prevented buoyant hot air from leaving the receiver. A ceiling with higher reflectivity allowed more incident radiation to be reflected onto the particles rather than absorbed and thermally re-emitted.

Field synergy principle analysis for reducing natural convection heat loss of a solar cavity receiver  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Due to the operating temperature from 900K to 1300K produced by the concentrating ratio over 2000 in solar parabolic dish-engine system, the natural convection heat loss driven by the buoyancy force of air contributes an important role in the energy loss of cavity receiver. 3-D numerical simulations were performed and the results are analyzed from the novel viewpoint of field synergy principle (FSP) in order to study the heat transfer and fluid flow characteristics in natural convection heat loss of cavity receiver. The effects of geometric parameters, including the inclination angle, aperture size, aperture position and cavity geometric shape on the natural convection heat loss of cavity receiver were examined. The FSP analysis on the simulation results demonstrates that FSP can well explain the reduction mechanism for natural convection heat loss of cavity receiver because the smaller inner production of velocity vector and temperature gradient always corresponds to the lower Nusselt number occurred in the cases with lager inclination angle, smaller aperture size, lower aperture position and frustum-cylinder cavity, respectively. Therefore, the reducing natural convection heat loss attributes to the weakening synergy between velocity vector and temperature gradient. In addition, the local heat transfer performance is studied by the presented distributions of heat transferred via fluid motion, where more interesting natural convection heat loss characteristics of cavity receiver and the detailed explanations were provided. The results of this work offer benefits for the development of theory and technique about reducing natural convection heat loss of cavity receiver.

Design Space Exploration of a 5 \\{MWth\\} Small Particle Solar Receiver  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract We present a design space exploration of a 5 \\{MWth\\} Small Particle Solar Receiver for solar tower power plants. This new solar receiver, developed under the support of the U.S. Department of Energy's SunShot Program, aims to volumetrically absorb concentrated solar irradiation using an air-particle mixture to drive a gas turbine or a combined cycle at much higher temperature than the state-of-the-art molten salt receivers. Among other advantages, the thermodynamic efficiency of the power block and the overall efficiency of the plant would considerably increase with this technology. The design space consists of the wall angle of the receiver, the geometry of the window (necessary to allow the solar irradiation to enter into the receiver) and the radiative properties of the walls. The constraints are based on material limits, ensuring the mechanical integrity of the quartz window, and other technical issues; though some of them are imposed via a penalty method. The design space is explored through parametric studies and a multidisciplinary approach is adopted. The aluminum oxide walls, the 45 spherical-cap window and the 45 wall- angle receiver are preferred due to their best compromise between thermal efficiency and wall temperature.

Measurements of solar flux density distribution on a plane receiver due to a flat heliostat  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

An experimental facility is designed and manufactured to measure the solar flux density distribution on a central flat receiver due to a single flat heliostat. The tracking mechanism of the heliostat is controlled by two stepping motors, one for tilt angle control and the other for azimuth angle control. A x-y traversing mechanism is also designed and mounted on a vertical central receiver plane, where the solar flux density is to be measured. A miniature solar sensor is mounted on the platform of the traversing mechanism, where it is used to measure the solar flux density distribution on the receiver surface. The sensor is connected to a data acquisition card in a host computer. The two stepping motors of the heliostat tracking mechanism and the two stepping motors of the traversing mechanism are all connected to a controller card in the same host computer. A software `TOWER` is prepared to let the heliostat track the sun, move the platform of the traversing mechanism to the points of a preselected grid, and to measure the solar flux density distribution on the receiver plane. Measurements are carried out using rectangular flat mirrors of different dimensions at several distances from the central receiver. Two types of images were identified on the receiver plane - namely, apparent (or visible) and mirror-reflected radiation images. Comparison between measurements and a mathematical model validates the mathematical model. 13 refs., 12 figs., 1 tab.

Solar Central Receiver Hybrid Power Systems sodium-cooled receiver concept. Final report. Volume II, Book 2. Conceptual design, Sections 5 and 6  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The overall, long-term objective of the Solar Central Receiver Hybrid Power System program is to identify, characterize, and ultimately demonstrate the viability and cost effectiveness of solar/fossil, steam Rankine cycle, hybrid power systems that: (1) consist of a combined solar central receiver energy source and a nonsolar energy source at a single, common site, (2) may operate in the base, intermediate, and peaking capacity modes, (3) produce the rated output independent of variations in solar insolation, (4) provide a significant savings (50% or more) in fuel consumption, and (5) produce power at the minimum possible cost in mills/kWh. It is essential that these hybrid concepts be technically feasible and economically competitive with other systems in the near to mid-term time period (1985-1990) on a commercial scale. The program objective for Phase I is to identify and conceptually characterize solar/fossil steam Rankine cycle, commercial-scale, power plant systems that are economically viable and technically feasible. This volume contains the detailed conceptual design and cost/performance estimates and an assessment of the commercial scale solar central receiver hybrid power system. (WHK)

Solar receiver protection means and method for loss of coolant flow  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

An apparatus and method are disclosed for preventing a solar receiver utilizing a flowing coolant liquid for removing heat energy therefrom from overheating after a loss of coolant flow. Solar energy is directed to the solar receiver by a plurality of reflectors which rotate so that they direct solar energy to the receiver as the earth rotates. The apparatus disclosed includes a first storage tank for containing a first predetermined volume of the coolant and a first predetermined volume of gas at a first predetermined pressure. The first storage tank includes an inlet and outlet through which the coolant can enter and exit. The apparatus also includes a second storage tank for containing a second predetermined volume of the coolant and a second predetermined volume of the gas at a second predetermined pressure, the second storage tank having an inlet through which the coolant can enter. The first and second storage tanks are in fluid communication with each other through the solar receiver. The first and second predetermined coolant volumes, the first and second gas volumes, and the first and second predetermined pressures are chosen so that a predetermined volume of the coolant liquid at a predetermined rate profile will flow from the first storage tank through the solar receiver and into the second storage tank. Thus, in the event of a power failure so that coolant flow ceases and the solar reflectors stop rotating, a flow rate maintained by the pressure differential between the first and second storage tanks will be sufficient to maintain the coolant in the receiver below a predetermined upper temperature until the solar reflectors become defocused with respect to the solar receiver due to the earth's rotation.

Sodium reflux pool-boiler solar receiver on-sun test results  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The efficient operation of a Stirling engine requires the application of a high heat flux to the relatively small area occupied by the heater head tubes. Previous attempts to couple solar energy to Stirling engines generally involved directly illuminating the heater head tubes with concentrated sunlight. In this study, operation of a 75-kW{sub t} sodium reflux pool-boiler solar receiver has been demonstrated and its performance characterized on Sandia's nominal 75-kW{sub t} parabolic-dish concentrator, using a cold-water gas-gap calorimeter to simulate Stirling engine operation. The pool boiler (and more generally liquid-metal reflux receivers) supplies heat to the engine in the form of latent heat released from condensation of the metal vapor on the heater head tubes. The advantages of the pool boiler include uniform tube temperature, leading to longer life and higher temperature available to the engine, and decoupling of the design of the solar absorber from the engine heater head. The two-phase system allows high input thermal flux, reducing the receiver size and losses, therefore improving system efficiency. The receiver thermal efficiency was about 90% when operated at full power and 800{degree}C. Stable sodium boiling was promoted by the addition of 35 equally spaced artificial cavities in the wetted absorber surface. High incipient boiling superheats following cloud transients were suppressed passively by the addition of small amounts of xenon gas to the receiver volume. Stable boiling without excessive incipient boiling superheats was observed under all operating conditions. The receiver developed a leak during performance evaluation, terminating the testing after accumulating about 50 hours on sun. The receiver design is reported here along with test results including transient operations, steady-state performance evaluation, operation at various temperatures, infrared thermography, x-ray studies of the boiling behavior, and a postmortem analysis.

Optical Analysis and Thermal Modeling of a Window for a Small Particle Solar Receiver  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Concentrated solar power (CSP) systems use heliostats to concentrate solar radiation in order to produce high temperature heat, which drives a turbine to generate electricity. A 5 \\{MWth\\} Small Particle Solar Receiver is being developed for power tower CSP plants based on volumetric absorption by a gas-particle suspension by the support from the U.S. Department of Energy under the SunShot Initiative. The radiation enters the pressurized receiver (0.5MPa) through a curved window, which must sustain the thermal loads from the concentrated solar flux and infrared reradiation from inside the receiver. The thermal load from the solar flux on the window is calculated by using the computer code MIRVAL from Sandia National Laboratory which uses the Monte Carlo Ray Trace (MCRT) method, along with two other codes developed by the authors. Thermal loading was calculated from energy absorbed at various points throughout the window from both the heliostat field and inside the receiver. Transmission and reflective losses were also calculated for different window materials in order to find out how much radiation will enter the receiver or will be lost. The three dimensional temperature distribution of the window is analyzed by an energy balance taking into account spectral volumetric absorption, spectral surface emission, conduction within the window, and convection from both surfaces. A maximum window temperature of 800C must be enforced to prevent cracking and/or devitrification due to overheating. Several grades of quartz are considered for this study with detailed spectral calculations. For a chosen material, the window temperature was found to be held under 800C. The results showed that most of the heat load on the window comes from the inside of receiver due to spectral variation.

Peginesatide for Anemia in Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease Not Receiving Dialysis  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

...Results. Study Patients. In PEARL 1, a total of 490 patients at 71 sites in the United States underwent randomization; in PEARL 2, a total of 493 patients at 43 sites in the United States and 19 sites in Europe underwent randomization. All of these patients received one or more doses of the study drug... Two studies compared peginesatide with darbepoetin in patients with CKD and anemia who were not receiving dialysis. The agents were similar in increasing and maintaining hemoglobin levels, but more cardiovascular events and deaths were observed with peginesatide.

Monograph Series, No. 4: 10 MWe Solar Thermal Central Receiver Pilot Plant heliostat field aimpoint improvements  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

New early morning and late afternoon heliostat aimpoints have been developed for the 10 MWe Solar Thermal Central Receiver Pilot Plant. These new heliostat aimpoints increase the fraction of the total receiver incident solar energy on selected panels to reduce the early morning start-up time and extend the late afternoon operating time, compared to those in current use at the Pilot Plant. Preliminary results from tests using the new morning start-up aimpoint file indicates that the winter start-up time was reduced by 30 to 45 minutes.

Structural Design Considerations for Tubular Power Tower Receivers Operating at 650 Degrees C: Preprint  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Research of advanced power cycles has shown supercritical carbon dioxide power cycles may have thermal efficiency benefits relative to steam cycles at temperatures around 500 - 700 degrees C. To realize these benefits for CSP, it is necessary to increase the maximum outlet temperature of current tower designs. Research at NREL is investigating a concept that uses high-pressure supercritical carbon dioxide as the heat transfer fluid to achieve a 650 degrees C receiver outlet temperature. At these operating conditions, creep becomes an important factor in the design of a tubular receiver and contemporary design assumptions for both solar and traditional boiler applications must be revisited and revised. This paper discusses lessons learned for high-pressure, high-temperature tubular receiver design. An analysis of a simplified receiver tube is discussed, and the results show the limiting stress mechanisms in the tube and the impact on the maximum allowable flux as design parameters vary. Results of this preliminary analysis indicate an underlying trade-off between tube thickness and the maximum allowable flux on the tube. Future work will expand the scope of design variables considered and attempt to optimize the design based on cost and performance metrics.
