Abstract:

The RS-31 Flywheel System is an energy storage device which is accelerated by an AVCO LYCOMING T55-L-7C 2930 SHP drive engine to 14,506 RPM. The two contra-rotating double disk rotors of the flywheel module have an inertia of 320,176 sq. in.-lbs storing 30 KW-HRS of energy at design speed. This was a Research Development test activity designed to explore and verify design predictions of system performance. Author
