MECHANICAL ENERGY STORAGE TECHNOLOGY PROJECT: ANNUAL REPORT 1978

The objectives of the Mechanical Energy Storage Technology (MEST) Project at Lawrence Livermore Laboratory (LLL) are to develop and evaluate MEST and to demonstrate its potential for energy savings in vehicular and stationary systems. Primary emphasis is on flywheel energy-storage systems; other applicable concepts are also considered. The activities reported include: (1) MEST application to electric and hybrid vehicles; (2) MEST application to heat engine vehicles; (3) fiber composite materials characterization; and (4) flywheel rotor technology development.
