Abstract:

THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES AN INNOVATIVE FLYWHEEL ENERGY STORAGE SYSTEM, SUITED FOR THE USE OF LEVELING THE ELECTRIC LOAD TO A RESIDENCE. THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES AN INNOVATIVE MAGNETICALLY SUSPENDED FLYWHEEL ENERGY STORAGE DESIGN IDEALLY SUITED FOR THE PURPOSE OF LEVELING THE LOAD TO A RESIDENCE. THE PROPOSED SYSTEM IS A MAGNETICALLY SUSPENDED COMPOSITE MATERIAL FLYWHEEL INTEGRATED WITH A BRUSHLESS DC MOTOR GENERATOR. A DC TO AC INVERTER WILL INTERFACE THE ENERGY STORAGE SYSTEM WITH THE RESIDENCE. THE CHARGE AND DISCHARGECYCLES WILL BE CONTROLLED BY A "SMART" MICROPROCESSOR CONTROL UNIT. THE MICROPROCESSOR WILL ANALYZE THE LOAD PROFILE OF THE RESIDENCE FOR A PREDETERMINED AMOUNT OF TIME AND AUTOMATICALLY ESTABLISH CHARGE AND DISCHARGE CYCLES. THE MICROPROCESSOR WILL EASILY INCORPORATE NEW PROGRAMMABLE LOAD PROFILES TO BE PROGRAMMED BY THE HOME OWNER OR THE UTILITY COMPANY. THE FLYWHEEL WILL BE ENCLOSED IN AN EVACUATED CONTAINMENT TO BE PLACE OUTSIDE OR INSIDE OF THE RESIDENCE.
