Unlocking Memory Metal Power Generation & Energy Conversion, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Unlocking Memory Metal Power Generation & Energy Conversion, Phase I
A new memory metal power generator is being developed using small mass and special Electro Fluid Acceleration techniques that permit high cyclic rates to be efficiently achieved in producing kW levels of power. The 2 array push-pull E-TAC design from the FY16 effort has achieved high mechanical output with a very low power consumption in the laboratory environment. The FY17 effort will: 1) construct a lightweight field deployable unit, 2) Make units fully contained with internal storage and load, 3) Make units simple to fasten to a cold or hot source, 4) Attempt to achieve 1kW electric power at 6000 RPM cyclic rate.
