Fabrication, mathematical modelling, design and testing of flywheels for grid-scale ES

Project Leader: Marc Secanell Gallart, University of Alberta

Develop mathematical models of flywheel systems considering energy losses, discrete design variables, rotor dynamic effects and novel material systems. A flywheel system with an energy capacity of 0.25 kWh will be fabricated, characterized, and tested to validate and optimize the model.

Project Relationships

R&D Project

R&D activities are directed at the further study, analysis or development of storage and/or storage-related technologies and their operation and deployment in Canada. They are typically supported by an Initiative, and are often hosted at an academic institution.
