Applications[edit] A Landini tractor with exposed flywheel Flywheels are often used to provide continuous power output in systems where the energy source is not continuous. For example, a flywheel is used to smooth fast angular velocity fluctuations of the crankshaft in a reciprocating engine. In this case, a crankshaft flywheel stores energy when torque is exerted on it by a firing piston, and returns it to the piston to compress a fresh charge of air and fuel. Another example is the friction motor which powers devices such as toy cars. In unstressed and inexpensive cases, to save on cost, the bulk of the mass of the flywheel is toward the rim of the wheel. Pushing the mass away from the axis of rotation heightens rotational inertia for a given total mass. Modern automobile engine flywheel A flywheel may also be used to supply intermittent pulses of energy at power levels that exceed the abilities of its energy source. This is achieved by accumulating energy in the flywheel over a period of time, at a rate that is compatible with the energy source, and then releasing energy at a much higher rate over a relatively short time when it is needed. For example, flywheels are used in power hammers and riveting machines. Flywheels can be used to control direction and oppose unwanted motions, see gyroscope. Flywheels in this context have a wide range of applications from gyroscopes for instrumentation to ship stability and satellite stabilization (reaction wheel), to keep a toy spin spinning (friction motor), to stabilize magnetically levitated objects (Spin-stabilized magnetic levitation)

History[edit] The principle of the flywheel is found in the Neolithic spindle and the potter's wheel.[4] The use of the flywheel as a general mechanical device to equalize the speed of rotation is, according to the American medievalist Lynn White, recorded in the De diversibus artibus (On various arts) of the German artisan Theophilus Presbyter (ca. 1070–1125) who records applying the device in several of his machines.[4][5] In the Industrial Revolution, James Watt contributed to the development of the flywheel in the steam engine, and his contemporary James Pickard used a flywheel combined with a crank to transform reciprocating motion into rotary motion.

Physics[edit] Play media A flywheel with variable moment of inertia, conceived by Leonardo da Vinci. A flywheel is a spinning wheel, or disc, or rotor, rotating around its symmetry axis. Energy is stored as kinetic energy, more specifically rotational energy, of the rotor : E k = 1 2 I ω 2 {\displaystyle E_{k}={\frac {1}{2}}I\omega ^{2}} where: E k {\displaystyle E_{k}} is the stored kinetic energy, ω is the angular velocity, and I {\displaystyle I} is the moment of inertia of the flywheel about its axis of symmetry. The moment of inertia is a measure of resistance to torque applied on a spinning object (i.e. the higher the moment of inertia, the slower it will accelerate when a given torque is applied). The moment of inertia for a solid cylinder is I = 1 2 m r 2 {\displaystyle I={\frac {1}{2}}mr^{2}} , for a thin-walled empty cylinder is I = m r 2 {\displaystyle I=mr^{2}} , and for a thick-walled empty cylinder is I = 1 2 m ( r e x t e r n a l 2 − r i n t e r n a l 2 ) {\displaystyle I={\frac {1}{2}}m({r_{\mathrm {external} }}^{2}-{r_{\mathrm {internal} }}^{2})} ,[6] where m {\displaystyle m} denotes mass, and r {\displaystyle r} denotes a radius. When calculating with SI units, the units would be for mass, kilograms; for radius, meters; and for angular velocity, radians per second and the resulting energy would be in joules. Increasing amounts of rotation energy can be stored in the flywheel until the rotor shatters. This happens when the hoop stress within the rotor exceeds the ultimate tensile strength of the rotor material. σ t = ρ r 2 ω 2   {\displaystyle \sigma _{t}=\rho r^{2}\omega ^{2}\ } where: σ t {\displaystyle \sigma _{t}} is the tensile stress on the rim of the cylinder ρ {\displaystyle \rho } is the density of the cylinder r {\displaystyle r} is the radius of the cylinder, and ω {\displaystyle \omega } is the angular velocity of the cylinder.

Material selection[edit] Flywheels are made from many different materials, the application determines the choice of material. Small flywheels made of lead are found in children’s toys. Cast iron flywheels are used in old steam engines. Flywheels used in car engines are made of cast or nodular iron, steel or aluminum.[7] Flywheels made from high-strength steel or composites have been proposed for use in vehicle energy storage and braking systems. The efficiency of a flywheel is determined by the maximum amount of energy it can store per unit weight. As the flywheel’s rotational speed or angular velocity is increased, the stored energy increases; however, the stresses also increase. If the hoop stress surpass the tensile strength of the material, the flywheel will break apart. Thus, the tensile strength limits the amount of energy that a flywheel can store. In this context, using lead for a flywheel in a child’s toy is not efficient; however, the flywheel velocity never approaches its burst velocity because the limit in this case is the pulling-power of the child. In other applications, such as an automobile, the flywheel operates at a specified angular velocity and is constrained by the space it must fit in, so the goal is to maximize the stored energy per unit volume. The material selection therefore depends on the application.[8] The table below contains calculated values for materials and comments on their viability for flywheel applications. CFRP stands for carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer, and GFRP stands for glass-fiber reinforced polymer. Material Specific tensile strength ( k J k g )   {\displaystyle ({\frac {kJ}{kg}})\ } Comments Ceramics 200-2000 (compression only) Brittle and weak in tension, therefore eliminate Composites: CFRP 200-500 The best performance—a good choice Composites: GFRP 100-400 Almost as good as CFRP and cheaper Beryllium 300 The best metal, but expensive, difficult to work with, and toxic to machine High strength steel 100-200 Cheaper than Mg and Ti alloys High strength Al alloys 100-200 Cheaper than Mg and Ti alloys High strength Mg alloys 100-200 About equal performance to steel and Al-alloys Ti alloys 100-200 About equal performance to steel and Al-alloys Lead alloys 3 Very low Cast Iron 8-10 Very low[9] The table below shows calculated values for mass, radius, and angular velocity for storing 500 J. The carbon-fiber flywheel is by far the most efficient; however, it also has the largest radius. In applications (like in an automobile) where the volume is constrained, a carbon-fiber flywheel might not be the best option.

Table of energy storage traits[edit] Flywheel purpose, type Geometric shape factor (k) (unitless – varies with shape) Mass (kg) Diameter (cm) Angular velocity (rpm) Energy stored (MJ) Energy stored (kWh) Energy density (kWh/kg) Small battery 0.5 100 60 20,000 9.8 2.7 0.027 Regenerative braking in trains 0.5 3000 50 8,000 33.0 9.1 0.003 Electric power backup[11] 0.5 600 50 30,000 92.0 26.0 0.043[12][13][14][15] For comparison, the energy density of petrol (gasoline) is 44.4 MJ/kg or 12.3 kWh/kg. High-energy materials[edit] For a given flywheel design, the kinetic energy is proportional to the ratio of the hoop stress to the material density and to the mass: E k ∝ σ t ρ m {\displaystyle E_{k}\varpropto {\frac {\sigma _{t}}{\rho }}m} σ t ρ {\displaystyle {\frac {\sigma _{t}}{\rho }}} could be called the specific tensile strength. The flywheel material with the highest specific tensile strength will yield the highest energy storage per unit mass. This is one reason why carbon fiber is a material of interest. For a given design the stored energy is proportional to the hoop stress and the volume: E k ∝ σ t V {\displaystyle E_{k}\varpropto \sigma _{t}V} Rimmed[edit] A rimmed flywheel has a rim, a hub, and spokes.[16] Calculation of the flywheel's moment of inertia can be more easily analysed by applying various simplifications. For example: Assume the spokes, shaft and hub have zero moments of inertia, and the flywheel's moment of inertia is from the rim alone. The lumped moments of inertia of spokes, hub and shaft may be estimated as a percentage of the flywheel's moment of inertia, with the majority from the rim, so that I r i m = K I f l y w h e e l {\displaystyle I_{\mathrm {rim} }=KI_{\mathrm {flywheel} }} For example, if the moments of inertia of hub, spokes and shaft are deemed negligible, and the rim's thickness is very small compared to its mean radius ( R {\displaystyle R} ), the radius of rotation of the rim is equal to its mean radius and thus: I r i m = M r i m R 2 {\displaystyle I_{\mathrm {rim} }=M_{\mathrm {rim} }R^{2}}
