51. Effect of Concentration on R134a/Al2O3 Nanolubricant Mixture Boiling on a Reentrant Cavity Surface with Extensive Measurement and Analysis Details
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1813
Topic: Energy
Published: 9/25/2013
Author: Mark A Kedzierski
Abstract: This paper quantifies the influence of Al2O3 nanoparticles on the pool boiling performance of R134a/polyolester mixtures on a Turbo-BII-HP boiling surface. Nanolubricants with 10 nm diameter Al2O3 nanoparticles of various volume fractions (1.6 %, 2. ...

52. Effect of RP-1 Compositional Variability on Thermophysical Properties
Topic: Energy
Published: 10/6/2009
Authors: Marcia L Huber, Eric W Lemmon, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: We compare experimental and predicted thermophysical properties of two samples of rocket propellant RP-1 obtained from different batches of RP-1 that exhibit compositional variations. One sample is atypical, due to a high olefin content. The effect o ...

53. Effects of Temperature on Surface Accumulation and Release of Silica Nanoparticles in an Epoxy Nanocoating Exposed to UV Radiation
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/16/2014
Authors: Chun-Chieh Tien, Ching-Hsuan Chang, Bernard Hao-Chih Liu, Deborah L Stanley, Savelas A Rabb, Lee Lijian Yu, Tinh Nguyen, Li Piin Sung
Abstract: Polymer nanocoatings are increasingly used outdoors and in harsh environments. However, because most common polymers degraded by the weathering elements, nanoparticles in polymer nanocoatings may be released into the environments. Such nanoparticle r ...

54. Energy Price Indices and Discount Factors for Life-Cycle Cost Analysis - April 2010: Annual Supplement to NIST Handbook 135 and NBS Special Publication 709
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 85-3273-25
Topic: Energy
Published: 5/15/2010
Authors: Amy S. Rushing, Joshua D Kneifel, Barbara C. Lippiatt
Abstract: This is the April 2010 edition of energy price indices and discount factors for performing life-cycle cost analyses of energy and water conservation and renewable energy projects in federal facilities. It will be effective from April 1, 2010 to March ...

55. Enhanced Water Splitting Performance of Potassium-Adsorbed Titania Nanotube Arrays
Topic: Energy
Published: 12/7/2009
Authors: Christiaan Richter, Cherno Jaye, Eugen Panaitescu, Daniel A Fischer, Laura H. Lewis, Ronald J. Willey, Latika Menon
Abstract: It is demonstrated that vertically-aligned titania nanotube planar arrays fabricated by electrochemical anodization using standard potassium-containing electrolytes invariably contain a significant amount of surface-adsorbed potassium ions that enhan ...

56. Fast and Reliable Spectral Response Measurements of PV Cells Using Light Emitting Diodes
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/1/2014
Authors: Behrang H Hamadani, John F Roller, Brian P Dougherty, Howard W Yoon
Abstract: We present a measurement system for absolute differential spectral responsivity of solar cells based on high-powered LED arrays coupled to an optical light guide capable of large area illumination. Two different measurement techniques were developed ...

57. Findings and Recommendations the NIST Workshop on Alternative Fuels and Materials: Biocorrosion
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Topic: Energy
Published: 5/4/2015
Authors: Elisabeth Mansfield, Jeffrey W Sowards, Wendy J. Crookes-Goodson
Abstract: The Applied Chemicals and Materials Division of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) hosted a workshop to identify and prioritize testing and data challenges in the area of biocorrosion. Materials used to store and distribute al ...

58. Flat Frequency Response in the Electronic Measurement of the Boltzmann Constant
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/1/2013
Authors: Jifeng Qu, Horst Rogalla, Yang Fu, Jianqiang Zhang, Alessio Pollarolo, Samuel Paul Benz
Abstract: A new quantum voltage calibrated Johnson noise thermometer (JNT) was developed at NIM to demonstrate the electrical approach that determines the Boltzmann constant k by comparing electrical and thermal noise power. A measurement with an integration p ...

59. Green Button: Building an Interoperable Ecosystem
Topic: Energy
Published: 11/25/2014
Authors: Martin J Burns, John A Teeter, David A Wollman
Abstract: Our goal in the Green Button Initiative is to provide electricity customers with easy access to their energy usage data in a consumer-friendly and computer-friendly format, and to develop an interoperable ecosystem for utilities, manufacturers, and c ...

60. Guest Editorial Article: Special Issue on Cyber Physical Systems and Security for Smart Grid
Topic: Energy
Published: 9/1/2015
Author: Hamid Gharavi
Abstract: Although there are many important CPS systems in practice, one of the most complex applications is the Smart Grid whose function is to distribute reliable and efficient electric energy with a high degree of sustainability. While the Smart Grid aims t ...
