Think of Williams Hybrid Power (WHP)'s electric flywheel energy storage as an electro-mechanical battery or, equally, as an ultra high-speed electric motor/generator having a high inertia, composite rotor.
Flywheels have been used for centuries to store and stabilise energy.
The flywheel rotor assembly is entirely composite apart from the rotor shaft at the neutral axis. An all-composite rotor is inherently safer than a steel hub and composite overlay construction, as there is no metallic structure traveling at very...
Williams Hybrid Power's electric flywheel technology offers very high specific power and is particularly suited to applications that demand high symmetric power transmission at continuous cyclic duty cycle.
Williams Hybrid Power's electric flywheel systems are manufactured using known, mature processes. The materials comprising the flywheel are largely readily sourced and therefore not expensive.
The Williams Hybrid Power electric flywheel has high specific power allowing a lightweight, compact installation for applications requiring high power transfer such as a hybrid city bus, tram, or performance automobiles.
Williams Hybrid Power electric flywheels contain no toxic or potentially combustible chemistries and are therefore free of some of the full-life-cycle challenges and associated costs of competing energy storage technologies such as batteries and...
