Flywheel Energy Storage

What Is Flywheel Energy Storage

The flywheel energy storage (FES) system works by keeping the energy in the system as rotational energy while simultaneously increasing the speed of a rotor (the flywheel) to an extremely high rate. When energy is removed from the system, the rotating speed of the flywheel slows down as a direct result of the theory of energy conservation. On the other hand, when energy is added to the system, the flywheel's rotational speed rises as a direct result of the principle of energy conservation.
