 Xologies IncorporatedJeremy L Perando Small Business Other Energy Technologies While going to college i worked via an Electrical Engineer apprenticeship with CONSOL energy. This certified me for working underground and I got my first look at drives and high voltage systems. With my newly found wealth working in the mines, i found the next 4 years in general labor underground in the coal mines. For the last two years of those 4 I was enrolled in a computer tech school completing my degree. I took job placement from there with Adelphia Communications where I got to work at corporate doing technical phone support while watching the broadband base grow from to 50 cities to 50000 cities. I wanted to get back closer to home and bid on a job at a local office where after a couple years Adelphia went bankrupt and i moved into temp work for COVAD communications doing backend phone support for T1 and T3 business lines. From there I took a permanent job working for BEITZEL corporation, a construction company in Garrett County MD. They were at a unique crossroads where mining safety regulation and technology smashed together. Being that I was already a certified miner and had spent the last 4 years in the tech field, I was able to help substantially in the Automation department. After a couple years Beitzel Corp formed Pillar Innovations where i assisted with building the department where i became manager of the automation and atmospheric monitoring product manager. After 9 years i was ask to start an automation department for an electrical contractor startup. Here I was responsible for entire coal preparation plant programming and SCADA systems. This lasted for a year where we started up one entire plant and some train loadouts. After the mining industry started to decline, CLINE Industires was still adding onto their coal plants as planned so all the work was moving to Illinois. At this point I started my business, Xologies Incorporated. Six years in and i can say that finding the right employee is the most difficult part of what a business owner does. Currently we support chemical and control systems using primarily Rockwell Software and Allen Bradley hardware. We also do custom robotics with ARM processors using PYTHON and web interfaces. Best asset is problem solving followed by intercommunication of old and new tech. Process control and control systems in general, just make sense to me. I also coach 2 FIRST robotics tech challenge teams and mentor on other teams.

 National Renewable Energy LabChun-Sheng Jiang Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) Power Generation: Renewable Background and interests
Electrical characterizations in nm-resolutions are expected to give critical understanding and guidance for developing novel inexpensive and reliable power electronics. This work proposes unique nm-scale material and device characterizations and failure mechanism analysis of power electronics, by applying and further partially developing a combination of complementary AFM-based nanoelectrical probes including Kelvin probe force microscopy (KPFM), scanning capacitance microscopy (SCM), scanning spreading resistance microscopy (SSRM), and scanning microwave impedance microscopy (SMIM), which operando-image the local electrical potential distribution, carrier concentration, local resistivity or conductivity, and simultaneous local capacitance and conductance, respectively. This set of characterizations will give critical device characteristics including but not limited to junction location, junction uniformity and breakdown, active carrier concentration and uniformity, and local resistivity distribution. The characterizations can be performed with in-situ changes during high voltage, high current, and high temperature stressing, which will give unprecedent understanding about device defects and device failure.
Capability
With more than 20 years of success in scanning probe microscopy (SPM), developed many types of SPM including the world first duel-probe Scanning tunneling microscopy (STM), and applied to a wide range of fundamental materials science and energy science of photovoltaic and energy storage. Published more than 60 first-authored papers and 200 co-authored papers, with most of them being contribution to characterization and mechanism understanding using SPMs. At NREL, we have a set of state-of-the-art AFM-based nanoelectrical probes described above. The home-made KPFM is among the current best voltage resolution of 10 mV. The high voltage mode of KPFM can map high potentials up to 100 V, which is necessary for the power electronics characterizations. Carrier mapping by SMIM can mitigate the requirement of high-quality insulating layer, which is critical for wide bandgap power electronics, but SCM can give higher sensitivity of capacitance signal. We have developed the in-situ high voltage and high temperature stressing for a PV core program, which can be transferred directly to the reliability and failure study for power electronics. Scientifically, I have backgrounds of physics, electrochemistry, and material science.

 Ampaire, IncPeter Savagian Small Business Transportation Ampaire’s mission is to transform air travel to 100% renewable energy. Electric flight significantly reduces operating cost and environmental impact. The physics of flight favor slower moving, and therefore, short range aircraft. As a result, we believe that the electrification of aviation begins in earnest with short haul commerce, motivated by cost reduction. Our first product replaces turboprop engines with a hybrid system, and cuts fuel by more than 50%.

We are an engineering company, IP developer, and integrator of technologies. Our IP is in EPU application, thermal systems, battery packs, propulsion architecture, and optimized airframes. We have positioned our R&D for scalability as the technologies improve, and have aligned our roadmaps to support larger aircraft.

Ampaire flew a full-scale technology demonstrator aircraft earlier this year, and it remains the world’s largest flying hybrid aircraft, by gross weight. Early next year, we will put a hybrid aircraft into demo fleet service and will allow Mokulele airlines to evaluate it’s real-world benefits.

We are very interested in developing high power density electric motors. Motor, inverter and thermal systems represent a significant mass and volume. High torque density is specifically prized, since it enables larger prop or fan areas to be coupled to deliver thrust at lower relative air speeds.

Ampaire’s interests are in the 300kW to 1MW level, running on a DC bus of approximately 1000 Volts. We think that these serve the commuter and regional aircraft space well, and fully explores the technologies at a scale relevant to eventual use distributed on larger aircraft.

Our engineers are expert in thermal systems, high energy magnets, and low loss ferromagnetics, and EPU control in aircraft. We achieved FAA airworthiness certification for our fist aircraft having systems with 800 Volt capability at 280kW. Out latest work features an advanced silicon carbide inverter, and a pack made of very high energy density battery cells.

Ampaire uses CAD tools and modern analysis methods at our R&D offices at the Hawthorne airport facilities. There we also have our Airframe Lab and Propulsion Systems Lab. Our flight test hangar is at Camarillo airport. Finally, we maintain relationships with top electric machine and power electronics R&D institutions and companies, including the University of Wisconsin, the University of Washington, Marquette University, UCSD and with Calnetics.
