Innovators at NASA’s Johnson Space Center have patented a proven, solar-powered refrigeration system that eliminates reliance on an electric grid, requires no batteries, and stores thermal energy for efficient use when sunlight is absent.
NASA seeks interested parties to license the Battery Management System (BMS) developed by innovators at Johnson Space Center. NASA’s BMS features the ability to monitor and balance the charge of individual battery cells that are in series and provide fault detection of individual cells in parallel within a battery pack of hundreds of cells.
Innovators at NASA’s Johnson Space Center have developed a method for efficiently controlling parasitic power in fuel cell systems. “Parasitic power” refers to power required for internal system maintenance rather than for the system’s primary purpose of net power output.
Innovators at NASA’s Johnson Space Center have patented a self-regulated water separator that provides centrifugal separation of fuel cell product water from oxidant gas.
