  • Publication number: 20240118356
    Abstract: A method for generating an image of an object with a magnetic resonance imaging (MM) system is presented. The method includes first performing a calibration scan of the object. The calibration scan is performed with a zero echo time (ZTE) radial sampling scheme to obtain calibration k-spaces for surface coil elements and a body coil of the MRI system. The calibration scan is performed in such a manner that the endpoints of calibration k-space lines in each calibration k-space follow a spiral path. A plurality of calibration parameters are then obtained from the plurality of calibration k-spaces. A second scan of the object is then performed to acquire the MR image data. The image of the object is then generated based on the plurality of calibration parameters and the MR image data.

  • Publication number: 20240109447
    Abstract: An integrated portable extremely fast charger (XFC) may be installed for heavy-duty off-road vehicles, such as tractors and combine harvesters. The XFC shortens the charging period of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and battery electric vehicles (BEVs) by providing >500 kW in a single charger. The proposed XFC integrates a solar farm and local energy storage system (ESS) such that the local grid only needs to provide the power gap between the vehicle battery and the local ESS during charging events, yielding a low-cost XFC installation and higher renewable energy penetration. Two design approaches for the XFC, conductive and wireless, are based on multiphase interleaved dc-dc converter circuit, permitting flexible access to electricity. Smart fault protection mechanism is also proposed to achieve high safety during charging events. The hexagonal prism charger may be integrated into the power electronic devices with a transformer, yielding a high compactness and power density.

  • Publication number: 20240113388
    Abstract: Lithium-sulfur (Li—S) batteries using unconventional-phase transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs), such as 1T?-WS2, as the functional layer on the separator. The unique atomic structure of 1T?-WS2 facilitates the strong immobilization and excellent catalytic ability in the conversion of polysulfide intermediates during cycling. Furthermore, the self-assembling of 1T?-WS2 greatly decreases the internal porosity, minimizing the uptake of electrolyte, which can further guarantee the performance of the battery under lean electrolyte conditions. As a result, a cell based on the 1T?-WS2 shows improved performances under high sulfur loading and lean electrolyte conditions. A cell with 12 mg cm?2 mass loading of S with only 25% oversized Li metal anode can deliver specific energy of at least 400 Wh kg?1 and 820 Wh L?1, which is among the best of reported Li—S batteries.
