Award List:

Sensorless Control of Linear Motors

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Raymond Sepe, Vice President R&D
Award Amount: $597,567.00
Abstract:
Sensorless linear motor control addresses the market need for cost effective and more reliable control of electric motors by removing the mechanical sensors from the feedback control system. The mechanical sensors are the weakest link in the controlsystem in terms of reliability and parts and… More

Sensorless Control of Linear Motors

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Raymond B. Sepe Jr, Vice President of R&D
Award Amount: $99,860.00
Abstract:
Closed-loop control techniques such as those based on inner loop vector current control are well suited to meeting these performance criteria. However, they require flux or armature position knowledge which is usually based on the use of mechanicalfeedback sensors. Mechanical feedback sensors for… More

Small Buoy for Energy Harvesting

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Steven Bastien, Research Scientist
Award Amount: $67,429.00
Abstract:
A "Small Buoy for Energy Harvesting" has applications for use on current and future buoy systems used by the submarine fleet of the United States Navy. This work proposes to meet the requirements by converting mechanical wave energy to electrical energy using a generation system housed in a spar… More

Optimum Control of Induction Generators for Water Current Energy Harnessing

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOC
Principal Investigator: Raymond B. Sepe, Jr., Vice President Research & Engineering
Award Amount: $94,972.50
Abstract:
Optimization of generator performance and maximization of output power are difficult to attain in the generation of hydro-power. This is due to the changing water conditions and corresponding changes in the form of available energy. ESL proposes to use self-tuning controls in combination… More
