MECHANICAL ENERGY STORAGE TECHNOLOGY FOR TRANSPORTATION APPLICATIONS PROJECT PLAN

The general objective of the project is to provide safe and economical flywheel systems for regenerative braking and load leveling in electric and other hybrid vehicles by FY 1984. For eventual utilization in vehicles, the design of FES technology must be both functional and marketable. The use of FES regenerative braking and load leveling systems will upgrade the performance of electric and hybrid vehicles and improve the fuel economy of heat engine/flywheel vehicles to a level required for acceptable market penetration. However, the extent to which market acceptance depends on performance has not been determined. (ERA
