31. Johnson Noise Thermometry Measurement of the Boltzmann Constant with a 200 Ohm Sense Resistor
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/1/2013
Authors: Alessio Pollarolo, Tae H. Jeong, Samuel Paul Benz, Horst Rogalla
Abstract: In 2010, NIST measured the Boltzmann constant k with an electronic technique that measured the Johnson noise of a 100 Ω resistor at the triple point of water (TPW) and used a voltage waveform synthesized with a quantized voltage noise source (QV ...

32. A focused super-continuum solar simulator for illuminated solar cell microscopy
Topic: Energy
Published: 5/12/2013
Author: Tasshi Dennis
Abstract: The design and application of a novel, focused solar simulator based on a high-power, super-continuum laser is described. We used the simulator to create micrometer-scale spatial maps of full-spectrum optical beam induced current (FS-OBIC) in sam ...

33. Towards Demand Response Measurement and Verification Standards
Topic: Energy
Published: 5/1/2013
Authors: David G Holmberg, David Hardin, Ed Koch
Abstract: The value and impact of demand response (DR) at grid-scale depends upon the widespread and active participation of a diverse customer base. The level of participation by customers is impacted by financial compensation and return-on-investment. The ro ...

34. Strategies to Achieve Net-Zero Energy Homes: A Framework for Future Guidelines Workshop Summary Report
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1140
Topic: Energy
Published: 4/5/2013
Author: Nancy A McNabb
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Measurement Science Roadmap for Net-Zero Energy Buildings Workshop Report (NIST TN 1660 ‹ March 2010) identified a number of broad challenges to achieving NZE high-performance green buildi ...

35. An Apparatus for Concurrent Measurement of Thermoelectric Material Parameters
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/29/2013
Authors: Raymond L. (Ray) Kallaher, Cory Alexander Maximilian Latham, Fred Sharifi

36. Performance Improvement of a Roof Top Air-Conditioning Unit by Refrigerant Circuitry Optimization
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/26/2013
Authors: Sunil Lee, David A Yashar, Piotr A Domanski
Abstract: In this experiment-aided simulation study, we achieved the performance improvement of a Roof Top Unit (RTU) by optimizing an evaporator‰s refrigerant circuitry using evolutionary algorithms. The system used in this study was a 2-stage 7.5 Ton RTU wit ...

37. Advanced Distillation Curve Analysis of Marine Diesel Fuel
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/17/2013
Authors: Peter Y. Hsieh, Kathryn Rosemary Abel, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: Ocean-going ships burn heavy fuel oil. The combustion of heavy fuel oil in marine diesel engines emits nitrogen oxides, sulfur oxides, and particulates into the air. Growing public concern over air quality has led to increased scrutiny of heavy fue ...

38. Monitoring methane in the boundary layer using a network of instruments at tall towers in the northeastern US
Topic: Energy
Published: 12/24/2012
Authors: Kuldeep R Prasad, Elena Novakovskaia
Abstract: Methane is one of the major greenhouse gases and in recent years more efforts have been undertaken to estimate its emissions at local and regional scales utilizing new observing systems. During 2012, Earth Networks Inc. deployed a dense GHG obse ...

39. Standard Reference Materials: SRM 1453, Expanded Polystyrene Board, for Thermal Conductivity from 281 K to 313 K
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 260-175
Topic: Energy
Published: 12/21/2012
Authors: Robert R Zarr, Adam L Pintar
Abstract: Thermal conductivity measurements at and near room temperature are presented as the basis for certified values of thermal conductivity of SRM 1453, Expanded Polystyrene Board. The measurements have been conducted in accordance with a randomized ...

40. A Dual Mode Evolutionary Algorithm Approach for Designing Optimized Finned-Tube Heat Exchangers
Topic: Energy
Published: 9/27/2012
Authors: David A Yashar, Piotr A Domanski, Janusz Wojusiak, Kenneth Kaufman
Abstract: The efficiency of a vapor compression system is strongly influenced by the performance of the finned-tube heat exchangers it employs. Heat exchanger performance is strongly influenced by the refrigerant circuitry, i.e., the connection sequence of th ...
