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.
