A Control Architecture for Active Combustion Control in Conventional Diesel Engines
TS-037361 — A novel method to schedule diesel fueling parameters based on cylinder conditions.
For a diesel engine to produce a combustion process which results in a desired trade-off between emissions and fuel economy, the fuel injection parameters must account for the state of the air path system. This is typically accomplished by simultaneously determining the desired air path set point …

Battery consumption minimization strategy for plug-in, pure, and hybrid EVs
TS-036908 — An energy management strategy for pure and hybrid electric vehicles that improves battery-life and optimizes fuel economy
Automotive powertrains are increasingly more electric, from mild and full hybrid, to plug-in hynbrid and battery electric, automotive propulsion is increasingly relying on electricity as a source of power assist, or as the sole source of power, in automotive vehicles. This is true for passenger, c…

U+RSW - A Break-Through Process for Dissimilar Metal Joining in Automotive Industries
TS-036907 — A welding technique that joins two dissimilar metals.
Resistance spot welding (RSW) is critical to automobile manufacturing, with 3,000 to 5,000 spot welds per vehicle. As consumers seek vehicles with better fuel economy, automobile manufacturers have replaced parts built from heavy metals, such as advanced high-strength steel (AHSS), with lighter al…

Method and Device to Monitor & Control Efficiency of the Friction Welding Process
TS-015293 — A device that can be readily attached to inertia or direct drive friction welding equipment to determine energy efficiency in-situ during welding, providing real-time feedback for improving control.
Friction welding is a category of solid-state welding processes that uses frictional heat generation at the weld interface to plasticize the work pieces and produce a metallurgical bond. The welding parameters used in large-scale industrial production are typically determined via trial and error. …

Thermodynamic Energy Maximization Cycle
TS-015232 — A thermodynamic cyclic system that can be applied to any oxidation/combustion process
Energy is lost as a heated gas byproduct from internal combustion engines, gas furnaces, and other power generators. The heated exhaust from these power generators has the potential to be exploited for additional energy. However, a method must be developed to extract thermal energy from the exhaus…

Oxidatively Stable Membranes for Gas Separations
TS-015228 — Carbon dioxide capture from synthesis gas or hydrogen and methane containing mixtures
Industrial processes, such as cement, steel, pulp and paper, chemicals and natural gas processing, are significant emitters of carbon dioxide, which accounts for nearly 25% of energy-related carbon dioxide emissions. The current standard for carbon capture membranes are amine-based, which are susc…

Enhanced Tapered Chamber Measurement Range
TS-015152 — A novel tapered chamber design that allows for easy polarization change, test zones clean of stray signals, and a thinner back wall absorber.
The original tapered chamber was developed to reduce stray signals normally associated with a more traditional rectangular chamber. In a tapered chamber, a feed antenna is placed at the throat of a tapered section. This chamber design had several problems the original concept could not satisfy bou…

Ultra-Wide Band Noise Radar System
TS-015008 — This novel invention is a radar system that uses random electromagnetic noise as the radiated signal.
The performance of conventional radar is limited by physical obstructions, signal deflection, and interference from electronic devices. Furthermore, current technologies may not identify or classify specific types of targets. A need exists for radar that optimizes signal to noise (RF) ratio and id…
