Transient Plasma Systems’s vision is to design and produce state of the art compact pulsed power technology in the U.S. We engineer pulsed power systems as an enabling technology for commercial, industrial, and research applications across a broad range of areas including combustion, bio-electrics, and agriculture. TPS technology has been developed and matured at the University of Southern California, with over a decade of support from the Department of Defense.
The company was spun out of the university with the express purpose of translating the technology into products and systems to respond to the demand of both military and commercial markets. TPS maintains close ties with the university, which assures that the company will continue to benefit from a working relationship with leading researchers in the field and timely access to advances in technology.
In addition to intellectual property, the TPS team has a cumulative 50 years of pulsed power experience in solving the difficult challenges in producing compact nanosecond pulsed power, and good standing in the scientific community that allows the company to recruit the best talent in the field. SNNLive spoke with Dan Singleton, Ph.D., President/CEO of Transient Plasma Systems (TPS) at the PortTech LA Expo 2014 in San Pedro, CA.
Mr. Singleton begins by explaining the technology, “Transient Plasma Systems has a technology that improves fuel efficiency in cars and trucks by 20%. Ignition has been unchanged for 120 years since the beginning of automobiles and what we’re doing is we’re changing that with different physics. We take a pulse, like a spark ignition pulse from a car and we compress it, we deliver it in 1 billionth of a second and that brings the power from being something like that of a scooter engine to four locomotives but the energy doesn’t go up so it’s low energy, high-power.” He describes the need for this new technology, “We’re consuming energy faster than ever so we want to be reducing our fuel consumption, reduce dependency on foreign oil of course as well as reducing emissions.”
“We’ve been cash-positive since our inception selling research versions of the device to other groups around the world who are also studying this technology and what we’ve looking to do now is transition into the commercial space where we’re actually selling devices that go on vehicles” explains Mr. Singleton. He continues, “Right now we have a strategic partner in natural gas, they’re converting diesel engines to run on natural gas and we’re looking to target the OEM’s like the big car manufactures to get into new cars...It’s a retrofit replacement, replaces what’s already in the car.” For more information: www.TransientPlasmaSystems.com
