The Pulse Power Hybrid Energy Storage Module Development Program compared two systems to power large pulsed loads. The notional load used in the comparison was a high energy, capacitor-based, Pulse Forming Network PFN operated with a repetition rate of 12 chargedischarge cycles per minute. Two hybrid solutions were evaluated. One was based on lithium ion batteries and used a flywheel to improve the power delivery. The other was a rotating-machine based Hybrid Energy Storage Module HESM designed to mitigate the impact of transient pulsed loads on the ships distribution power system. An important finding was that the transient load could be effectively buffered with only the flywheel energy storage element.
