Project Status 

Kinetic” has assembled and extensively tested the flywheel energy storage prototype. All of the corresponding patents are obtained and design plans and specifications are ready. Small-lot production of the next generation flywheel storage systems has been set up.

Prototype Testing

Kinetic. Winding Machine Kinetic. Superflywheel Energy Storage. Prototype Kinetic. Superflywheel

The following tests were conducted at the research and production facility in Europe: 

  • Superflywheel balancing, test stand assembly
  • Control system commissioning, software modification 
  • Flywheel test acceleration up to 800 rpm
  • Noise and vibration analysis, run down time analysis
  • Prototype disassembly
  • Superflywheel rebalancing
  • Assembly, enclosure evacuation, pre-start checks
  • Gradual flywheel acceleration up to 3000 rpm
  • Grid integration and energy recuperation
  • Flywheel acceleration up to 4000 rpm
  • Electrical machine disconnection test for prolonged energy storage
  • Test of the emergency braking system
  • Flywheel acceleration up to 5000 rpm. Temperature and pressure analysis
  • Energy Conversion Efficiency analysis

Tests and trials have proven Kinetic energy storage system to be fully functional and able to accumulate and release energy as projected in various modes of operation, including isolated grid and solar panels integration.

Modes of operation were specified and monitored by the control system based on a Mitsubishi frequency converter with built-in energy recuperation system. Trials were conducted with the help of the "Nordsystem" company.
