EPRI 12th International Conference on Cycle Chemistry in Fossil and Combined Cycle Plants

Arlington, VA  |  June 25-29, 2018

Cycle Chemistry is widely recognized as an important consideration for ensuring high standards of availability, reliability and efficiency of steam and water touched components in the cycles of utility fossil fueled power generating systems. Chemistry related damage in fossil steam generators and steam turbines may result in component failures that require expensive and sometimes lengthy forced outages. This international conference will once again provide the industry with the latest information, developments and field experience in all aspects of fossil plant cycle chemistry as applied to conventional plants and combined cycle units with heat recovery steam generators (HRSG). The major conference theme is to review, document and transfer technology on the current understanding of the chemistry requirements of fossil and combined cycle units under all operating conditions and identify those areas where better information is needed. Changing economic conditions and increases in non-dispatchable renewable generation have led to dramatic increases in cyclic operation and unit layup. The chemistry issues resulting from this shift in fossil generating asset operation are a primary focus of the 2018 edition of the conference. Presentations will be given by recognized chemistry experts representing utility organizations, equipment manufacturers and consulting and research organizations from around the world.

SmallSat Conference

Logan, UT  |  August 4-9, 2018

The growth of small satellites has been fueled by the promise of shorter development cycles, lower cost, new technology, and more frequent access to space. As on-orbit results pave the way, small satellites are increasingly being considered for critical, high-value missions. These are taking the form of emerging applications with highly constrained payload requirements, new system architectures that seek operational resiliency, and numerous other user-driven conditions for availability. With affordability and responsive timelines being a classic imperative for small satellite missions, appropriate technical and programmatic approaches must match these expectations. Developers are now seeking innovative ways to increase the odds of mission success by employing diverse design techniques, autonomy methods, and streamlined processes that help identify and mitigate potential issues. However, a balance must be found between lessons learned and new concepts that achieve mission success.

During the 32nd AIAA/USU Conference on Small Satellites, we will explore the new technologies, design methods, processes, operational constructs, and activities that inform and secure the success of small satellite mission.
