ORNL wins eight R&D 100s
Date:7/11/2014

combines chaotic map theory with advanced CPUs and CPU systems to detect component faults in systems that handle large computational problems such as scientific computations, weather predictions and web data processing. DUCCS software provides critical diagnosis information that contributes to the resilience of computing systems in terms of error-free computations and sustained capacity.

The research was funded by the DOE's Mathematics of Complex, Distributed, Interconnected Systems Project, Applied Mathematics Program, Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research.

High Performance Silicon Carbide based Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle Battery Charger was jointly developed by Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Arkansas Power Electronics International, the University of Arkansas and Toyota. The ORNL team was Laura Marlino, Nance Ericson, Shane Frank and Chuck Britton.

This on-board battery charger technology for plug-in hybrid electric vehicles incorporates silicon carbide devices to provide 10 times the power density of current commercial charging systems, while delivering more efficient, higher power throughput for faster charging times. In addition, the charger significantly increases the vehicle's range and the battery pack can be charged from any available single-phase AC power outlet, allowing for cheaper off-peak hour charging while promoting a decreased dependence on expensive fossil-based fuels.

The project was funded through an ARPA-E award.

Ionic Liquid Anti-wear Additives for Fuel-efficient Engine Lubricants was developed by ORNL, General Motors Research and Development Center, Shell Global Solutions and Lubrizol Corp. ORNL principal investigators were Jun Qu, Huimin Luo, Sheng Dai, Peter Blau, Todd Toops, Brian West and Bruce Bunting.

The technology employs a group of ionic liquids that can be mixed with common lubricating oils to form a nanostructured protective film on bearing surfaces that effec
