Distributed, Thermoacoustic Multi-phase Electric Generator

tech watch

This invention builds on Los Alamos National Laboratory’s portfolio of innovative thermoacoustic technologies. This intellectual property allows a thermoacoustic engine and generator set to produce multi-phase electrical power. In addition, it allows modular scale-up to high power levels without the need for scale-up of the individual unit size.

Applications

  • Heat-driven electrical power generation
  • Solar-thermal electrical generation
  • Diesel-fired auxilliary power
  • Other combustion - heat to electrical

Advantages

  • Multi-phase electrical output
  • Scalable, with minimal size requirements
  • Intrinsic vibration balancing
