Vycon flywheel energy storage systems store kinetic energy in the rotor of a motor/generator by constantly spinning it. When short-term back-up power is required (i.e. when utility power fluctuates or is lost), the rotor's inertia allows it to continue spinning and the resulting kinetic energy is converted back to electricity. When connected to the DC bus of a static UPS, the flywheel allows to provide ride-through power to critical loads during electrical disturbances like sags, brownouts, momentary interruptions and short power outages.
Combined with a generator, this DC flywheel offers the ultimate battery-free UPS/power solution for longer outages.
Do not hesitate to call our engineers to discuss your application, they will help you decide if the flywheel is the right solution for you (technical support# 480-563 4172)
