Abstract

A flywheel energy storage system for use at utility substations to replace electrochemical battery banks has been modeled and simulated on the EMTP. The system response to maintain the load voltage due to loss of distribution system power, clearing of a short circuit and varying the flywheel frequency is presented. The simulation results show that the conceptual flywheel energy storage system is capable or returning and maintaining the load voltage under this variety of conditions.
