Evaluating Powerful Batteries for Modular Electric Grid Energy Storage

Sandia has begun lab-based characterization of TransPower’s GridSaver, the largest grid energy storage (ES) system analyzed at Sandia’s Energy Storage Test Pad. Project lead David Rosewater (in Sandia’s Energy Storage Technology and Systems Dept.) said that Sandia will evaluate the 1 MW lithium-ion grid ES system for capacity, power, safety, and reliability and also investigate the […]

Sandian Spoke at the New York Energy Storage Expo

Sean Hearne (@SandiaLabs, manager of Sandia’s Energy Storage Technology and Systems Dept.) was invited to speak #EnergyStorage at the NYC Energy Storage Expo. NYSERDA and Con Edison, with support from NY-BEST (the New York Battery & Energy Storage Technology consortium) and AGRION, will be hosting a series of Energy Storage Expos in New York City. […]

Parallel Implementation of Smoothed-Particle Hydrodynamics Method Using LAMMPS/Trilinos

Sandia has implemented a scalable parallel capability to model polarized-fluid dynamics in micro devices driven by an electric potential. The Sandia team discretized the mathematical model (Navier-Stokes and Poisson-Bolzman equations) with an implicit smoothed-particle hydrodynamics (SPH) method. Due to the method’s particle nature, the team used the LAMMPS (Large-scale Atomic/Molecular Massively Parallel Simulator) particle library, […]

Federal Laboratory Consortium Regional Technology-Transfer Awards Salute Innovation, Commercialization at Sandia

The Federal Laboratory Consortium (FLC) is the nationwide network of federal laboratories with more than 300 members that provides the forum to develop strategies and opportunities for linking laboratory mission technologies and expertise with the marketplace. “We are proud of this work in technology development, technology transfer, and partnerships,” said Jackie Kerby Moore, Sandia’s manager […]

Joint Hire Increases Materials Science Collaboration for Sandia, UNM

Sandia and the University of New Mexico (UNM) have hired Dr. Fernando Garzon, a nationally recognized scientist/inventor, to work for both institutions. “Sandia National Laboratories and the University of New Mexico have enjoyed a close relationship for many years in the areas of research, education, and technology development and deployment,” said Sandia Vice President and […]
