ORNL wins eight R&D 100s

OAK RIDGE, Tenn., July 11, 2014--Researchers at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory have received eight R&D 100 awards, presented by R&D Magazine in recognition of the year's top technological innovations.

"These awards recognize the tremendous value of our National Labs," said Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz. "Research and development at the National Labs continues to help our nation address its energy challenges and pursue the scientific and technological innovations necessary to remain globally competitive."

The eight awards bring ORNL's total of R&D 100 awards to 187 since their inception in 1963. This year, ORNL scientists and engineers received awards for the following technologies:

Continuously Variable Series Reactor, or CVSR, was developed by ORNL, SPX Transformer Solutions Inc. and the University of Tennessee. ORNL inventors were Aleksandar Dimitrovski and Burak Ozpineci.

The CVSR is a high power magnetic amplifier that controls power flow in power systems. In operation of power systems, where conditions constantly change, a single CVSR will provide smoothly variable alternating current circuit impedance, while a number of coordinated CVSR's installed throughout the power system can provide full power system control. CVSR's unique design helps to ensure full use of power system assets, increased reliability and efficiency and effective use of renewable resources.

The research was funded by DOE's Advanced Research Project Agency-Energy under the Green Electricity Network Integration program.

Diagnosis Using the Chaos of Computing Systems, or DUCCS, was developed at ORNL by Nageswara Rao.

DUCCS ultra-lightweight software quickly and nonintrusively detects a variety of hardware faults in processing units, accelerators, memory elements and interconnects of large-scale high-performance computing systems such as supercomputers, clusters and server farms. The software
