Flywheel Energy Storage
VYCON’s flywheel-based energy storage system hold kinetic energy in a spinning mass, and convert this energy to electric power through the use of a high speed electric motor/generator.
- High power density
- Low maintenance/no bearing to replace
- 20-Year operational life
- 5-year warranty
- Environment friendly/low carbon footprint
The VYCON flywheel can be package to support various applications. The typical VDC and VDC-XE configuration, with 10~15 seconds@300kW back up time, is compatible with most renown conventional static UPS on the market as a DC source, which supports the critical power market, including Data Centers, health care facility, Hi-Tech industrial plants, casinos and others. Use VYCON’s flywheel, as an alternative for battery substitution, can avoid disadvantages that caused by conventional VRLA Lead-Acid battery, such as high-maintenance and replacement costs, limited cycles, needs for a controlled environment, and great footprint. And perhaps the most advantage of flywheel is to minimize system downtime caused by unpredictable characteristic of battery when it comes to failures.
The VYCON flywheel stores kinetic energy in the form of a rotating mass and is designed for high power, short discharge applications. VYCON’s patented technology enables the VYCON flywheel to charge and discharge at high rates for countless cycles without degradation through its 20-year life.
Established in 2002, VYCON is a designer and manufacturer of environmentally friendly, high-speed energy storage flywheel systems. It has been named to the prestigious Inc. 500 list, a compendium of the most entrepreneurial and fastest growing private companies in America in 2010.
