LESS - Increasing lifetime of flywheel energy storage systems

Project: Research project

Description

flywheel energy storage systems make a constribution to lower the fuel consumtion of hybrid vehicles. The lifetime requirement of rolling contact bearings can´t be realized economically and tecnically justifiable.
To enable the use of rolling contact bearings the mechanical loads have to be reduces. Methods to reach this aim will be explored by simulation and rig testing
