Oak Ridge National Laboratory Key Developments
APLAIR Manufacturing Systems of Etowah Receives Licenses from Oak Ridge National Laboratory for Weld Inspection Technology
Mar 11 15
APLAIR Manufacturing Systems of Etowah has licensed a weld inspection technology developed by Oak Ridge National Laboratory. ORNL’s infrared imaging system can help automakers quickly determine whether a weld is good or bad without damaging the part. The infrared check offers industry a low-cost and nondestructive alternative to monitor welds in real time. Company and lab staff plan to collaborate to improve and validate the technology under a proposed cooperative research and development agreement, including testing on an industrial-scale assembly line. APLAIR announced that it hopes to make a commercial product based on the technology available within two years.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Whirlpool Corporation Collaborate to Design Refrigerator
Feb 25 15
Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Whirlpool Corporation are collaborating to design a refrigerator that could cut energy use by up to 40% compared with current models. The goal of the cooperative research and development agreement, or CRADA, is to make a next-generation household refrigerator more energy efficient by using WISEMOTION, an innovative linear compressor manufactured by Embraco, and other novel technologies and materials. The team will redesign a refrigerator to incorporate a linear compressor, which reduces energy losses by continuously matching the compressor pumping rate to the refrigerators cooling requirements. Associated components will provide additional efficiency gains. Together, these features could cut refrigerator energy use by approximately 40%, which would translate into an estimated $26 savings per year on the average consumers electricity bill.
U.S. Department of Energy, Oak Ridge National Laboratory and EPB Begin New Partnership
Oct 26 14
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Oak Ridge National Laboratory and EPB have announced the beginning of a partnership that will use Chattanoogaâ s smart grid as a living laboratory for testing new energy technologies. Under the new agreement with EPB and DOE, Oak Ridge National Laboratory will apply its technical expertise in such areas as data analytics, control systems, cybersecurity and high-performance computer modeling to test new smart grid technologies and processes on the electric grid in Chattanooga, allowing EPB to further capitalize on its smart grid investment. Partially funded with $111.5 million in Recovery Act stimulus funds awarded by the Energy Department, EPB has made its distribution system more robust while improving operations with the deployment of smart grid technologies, which allow EPB to provide continued reliable electric service and respond more effectively to severe weather events. In addition to traditional laboratory simulation, testing applied science on Chattanoogas fully operational smart grid will provide real-world understanding about the performance and ideal environments for emerging applications. Advanced analytics and data management will help EPB better leverage the data from its systemâ s advanced sensors to improve operations. Researchers plan to examine the benefits of advanced controls and microgrids, which have the potential for widespread deployment in distributed generation, storage and renewable systems. The collaborators also expect to use high performance computing for modeling and simulation to further broaden understanding of the systems operations.
