Transferring Research From Lab to Market

Fraunhofer USA, Inc., a legally independent US affiliate founded by Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, is an R&D organization working with industry, universities, and state and federal governments on contract research projects. We are in the high-tech problem solving business; we utilize our world class scientific and engineering expertise to respond to technical problems, to design and develop prototypes, to develop and proof the manufacturing processes, to bridge the gap between basic research and market moving new developments along the technology readiness scale. These translational activities allow our customers to have a positive societal impact.

Dynamic energy management using batteries and photovoltaics

One challenge facing the widespread adoption of renewable energies is the fluctuating output of photovoltaic systems — for energy-intensive companies, this means that their distribution networks are rapidly becoming inadequate. Fraunhofer researchers have developed a solution that combines power from renewable sources with electricity from the public grid and uses batteries to compensate for fluctuations. This approach will particularly benefit companies that aim to invest in sustainability with photovoltaics — and reduce their energy costs in the process. A living laboratory, which mimics practical conditions, will give industry customers the opportunity to test components and system solutions. The solution also allows for a more efficient management of e-car charging stations.

A novel radar technique automatically monitors the rotor blade manufacturing process

Identifying defects in fiber composite materials during the production process will be possible in the future thanks to a novel radar method that automatically and non-destructively monitors the manufacturing process of fiber composite materials such as wind turbine rotor blades. Until now, monitoring has consisted of visual inspections. The Fraunhofer Institute for High Frequency Physics and Radar Techniques FHR collaborated with consortium partners Ruhr University Bochum, FH Aachen University of Applied Sciences and Aeroconcept GmbH to develop an innovative method in the FiberRadar project.
