DEMONSTRATION OF AN INDUCTOR MOTOR/ALTERNATOR/FLYWHEEL ENERGY STORAGE SYSTEM. TECHNICAL QUARTERLY PROGRESS REPORT NO. 2, SEPTEMBER 28, 1976--DECEMBER 28, 1976

The overall objective of the ERDA program described is to demonstrate new technology associated with a novel concept for a high-speed flywheel energy storage system. The concept, consisting of a high-speed composite flywheel combined with an integral inductor-type motor/alternator, offers the possibility of a small, lightweight package with high energy storage capability. The basic technology demonstrated in this program will have application to a number of flywheel energy storage systems. The demonstration unit will have a nominal rating of 20 kVA. The program will develop a flywheel energy storage system sized for a 3000 lb battery electric van. The balance of the report discusses the energy storage package: (1) design and fabrication of the inductor motor/alternator/flywheel; and (2) design and fabrication of the solid state power conditioner and control breadboard.
