  • Over the course of this project we developed and contstructed the Colorado FRC facility, which included a custom vacuum vessel, high voltage and firing circuitry, two plasma gun electrodes, and pumping system, and several diagnostics. Density measurements were made with a multichannel CO{sub 2} (10.6 μm) laser interferometer. We also developed and a high-resolution magnetic probe array for 3-axis measurements of magnetic fluctuations. We constructed and implemented a triple Langmuir probe for making time-resolved measurements of plasma density, potential, and temperature. By calculating the time history of the gun eigenvalue, we observed indications that the Taylor formation paradigm applies. Tomore » estimate the spectral characteristics of fluctuations in an FRC, we developed a technique to extract the relevant spectral information using data from the high-resolution multi-point magnetic probe.« less

  • An Energy Conservation Investment Program (ECIP) project to install a 94,900 lb steam per hour wood burning boiler in the Fort Stewart Central Energy Plant was selected by the US Army for validation by the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. This ECIP project was justified on the basis of fuel cost savings and the use of a renewable energy source: wood waste, which is abundantly available at Fort Stewart, Georgia. This report documents the results of a 1-year postretrofit study designed to validate the energy and cost savings attributed to the installation of the new wood burning boiler. During the postretrofitmore » validation study period (FY 1986), the new wood burning boiler produced approximately 90% of the steam required by the Central Energy Plant to meet the seasonal heating and cooling demands of Fort Stewart. In doing so, over 2,880,000 gal of No. 5 fuel oil (a nonrenewable energy source) was conserved. With full consideration given to the increase in electrical energy required to operate the new Wood Burning Boiler Plant addition, an annual nonrenewable energy savings of over 400,000 MBtu is projected. Based on the results of a life cycle cost analysis performed on this ECIP project, a first-year savings of over $1,200,000 is estimated. The resultant discounted savings ratio is 3.36, and the estimated simple payback period is 6.7 years. It was concluded that installation and operation of a wood burning boiler at a military installation such as Fort Stewart can result in significant cost and nonrenewable energy savings.« less
  • During the period January to November 1974, the Martin Marietta Corporation, Denver Division and the Engineering Experiment Station at the Georgia Institute of Technology were engaged in design of a solar central receiver electrical generating system under National Science Foundation Grant GI-41305. Georgia Tech has operated as a subcontractor to Martin Marietta during this period. The program has progressed to the stage that a commercial scale design concept and a detailed Bench Model boiler-superheater design have been completed. The next stage is construction of the Bench Model boiler-superheater and accessory equipment and proof testing of the assembled system. Following thismore » work, it is planned that the Bench Model apparatus will be transported to the 1000 kW Solar Furnace operated by the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique in France; there CNRS and United States investigators will conduct operational tests. This proposal requests follow-on support for construction and proof testing of the Bench Model system.« less
