Optimization of Flywheel Energy Density Utilizing a Composite Hub

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$98,086.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator:
Ward Spears, Principal Mechanical/Comp
Abstract:
The proposal objective is to develop a flywheel energy storage system capable of achieving its maximum theoretical specific energy density, while being capable of repeated high peak-power demands. The key to achieving this objective is the development of a composite hub capable of supporting an… More

Extreme Energy Density Flywheel Energy Storage System for Space Applications

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2005 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$750,000.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator:
Richard Hockney, Chief Engineer
Abstract:
The overall objective of the proposed program is to develop the preliminary design for the highest-possible energy-density flywheel energy storage system within the given constraints. This Phase II program plan is presented assuming that the power and energy requirements of the selected system are… More

Development of a High-power Motor/Generator for the ARPA-E Hub-Less Flywheel

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$146,081.00
Agency:
DOE
Principal Investigator:
Richard Hockney, Mr. – 978-661-2085
Abstract:
Recognizing the advantages of flywheels in rapid-response, high cycle-life applications, ARPA-E has funded Beacon Power to develop critical components for a low cost flying ring hub-less flywheel under the GRIDS program. The funded system will provide 100 kW for 1 hour for firming and smoothing of… More
