Product Description

Flywheel UPS Systems, 50-1000 kVA (TLE & SG Series UPS)

The flywheel, using Vycon™ technology, stores kinetic energy in the form of a rotating mass and is designed for hi power, short time discharge applications. The technology includes a high speed motor generator and active magnetic bearings that are used to levitate and sustain the rotor during operation. The flywheel assembly includes a superior control system that provides information on system performance. This innovative technology allows the flywheel to charge and discharge at high rates for countless cycles, providing much superior operation over conventional battery use.

How the Flywheel Works
The flywheel energy storage system works like a dynamic battery that stores energy by spinning a mass around an axis. Electrical input spins the flywheel hub up to a high speed and a standby charge keeps the unit spinning until its called upon to release its energy. The energy is proportional to its mass and speed squared. Thus, doubling the mass will double the energy capacity, but doubling the rotational speed will quadruple the energy capacity, thus giving our flywheel a competitive advantage.
