Phase 1
Fiscal Year: 2013
Title: Development of Next-Generation Composite Flywheel Design for Shock and Vibration Tolerant, High Density Rotating Energy Storage
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Contract: N00014-13-P-1203
Award Amount: $79,999.00
 

Abstract:

KaZaK Technologies and our program subcontractors and technical associates our proposing several concepts to significantly increase rim rotational velocity and increase storage energy density/ unit as identified by the Navy as a pre-requisite for shipboard integration of flywheel energy stowage systems. These systems have the potential to reduce drain on ship electrical systems and to provide access to an almost instantaneous supply of electrical energy. Incorporating such storage systems into next generation integrated power systems has potential to meet peak high power electrical demands and support shipboard integration of next generation high electric power technologies without compromising ship electrical systems, thermal signature and RCS. During Phase I, our team will develop rim designs and predict performance via finite element analysis, test coupon fabrication and testing emphasizing material and geometric optimization for low cost, high quality manufacturing automation. If awarded a Phase II, our team will work to apply Phase I materials, configurations and automated manufacturing technology to the fabrication of hardware for prototypes sea trials.
