Final Safety Analysis Report--SNAP 1A Radioisotope Fueled Thermoelectric Generator

Description: The safety aspects involved in utilizing the Task 2 radioisotope-powered thermoelectric generator in a terrestrial satellite are described. It is based upon a generalized satellite mission having a 600-day orbital lifetime. A description of the basic design of the generator is presented in order to establish the analytical model. This includes the generator design, radiocerium fuel properties, and the fuel core. The transport of the generator to the launch site is examined, including the shippi… more

Thermoelectric Development at Hi-Z Technology

Description: An improved Thermoelectric Generator (TEG) for the Heavy Duty Class Eight Diesel Trucks is under development at Hi-Z Technology. The current TEG is equipped with the improved HZ-14 Thermoelectric module, which features better mechanical properties as well as higher electric power output. Also, the modules are held in place more securely. The TEG is comprised of 72 TE modules, which are capable of producing 1kW of electrical power at 30 V DC during nominal engine operation. Currently the upgrade… more

Fabrication and Properties of Copper-Boron Carbide Control Materials for Phoebus II Reactor

Description: The Phoebus II Reactor required a neutron absorber material for criticality control and a neutron poison material for reducing the flux peak at the forward end of the fuel element. Normal B{sub 4}C was chosen for the neutron absorbing material, and Cu was employed as the matrix.A feasibility study developed procedures for producijg uniform, dense, stable sheet material of Cu-20, 40, and 50 v/o normal B{sub 4}C. The procedures were, with only slight modifications, translated to production operat… more
