Recovery Act - Advanced Technology High Efficiency Low Cost Small Turbine for DG and CHP

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Emanuel Papandreas, Dr.
Award Amount: $147,355.00
Abstract:
Efficient and environmentally friendly power generation is a national goal, toward which small gas turbines could contribute: however, to date small gas turbines (300kW to 2,000kW) have played no significant role in power generation due to their relatively poor efficiency and high cost when compared… More

Recovery Act - Advanced Technology High Efficiency Low Cost Small Turbine for DG and CHP

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Emanuel Papandreas, Dr.
Award Amount: $997,135.00
Abstract:
Efficient and environmentally friendly power generation is a national goal. While large scale power plants are demonstrating thermal efficiencies of 50%, the cost and environmental impact of increasing the size of current power plants and expansion of the grid to distribute this power are making… More

Advanced Gas Turbine Engine Exhaust Waste Heat Recovery System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Emanuel Papandreas, Vice President, Engineeri – (317) 336-4477
Award Amount: $78,410.00
Abstract:
Navy ships use of gas turbine engines for both main propulsion and electrical power generation. With typical simple cycle thermal efficiencies of around 32-35%, a great deal of energy is lost as exhaust waste heat from the gas turbines. Clearly there is a need to develop systems that can recover as… More

Efficient Light Weight Propulsion for Small Unmanned Surface Vehicle

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Emanuel Papandreas, Vice President Engineeri – (317) 336-4477
Award Amount: $146,008.00
Abstract:
A small, efficient, light weight propulsion system consisting of a single cylinder, two cycle heavy fuel engine and a waterjet propulsor will be designed to meet the requirements for the 66 inch, 24 inch beam man-portable small Unmanned Surface Vehicle.

Advanced Gas Turbine Engine Exhaust Waste Heat Recovery System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Emanuel Papandreas, Vice President Engineeri – (317) 336-4477
Award Amount: $299,223.00
Abstract:
Navy ships use of gas turbine engines for both main propulsion and shipboard electrical power generation. With a typical simple cycle gas turbine nearly 65% of the energy consumed is typically lost as waste heat. Safely and efficiently recovering electrical power from this source of energy equal to… More

High Power Density, High Efficiency Advanced Generator for DEW Systems

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2014 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Emanuel Papandreas, Vice President, Engineeri – (317) 336-4477
Award Amount: $79,307.00
Abstract:
Solid state RF and millimeter wave weapons systems require substantial power to operate. Pure solid state systems have limited energy density and require charging over the typical use cycle. The directed energy system must be compact enough to mount on a vehicle such as a HMMWV, a small trailer or a… More
