Phase 2 STTR

Institution: UT Center for Electromechanics

Agency: Navy
Topic: N11A-T028
Budget: 09/27/13 - 05/26/14

Compared to Lithium-Ion (Li-ion) batteries, which have earned the largest share of the battery storage market, flywheel energy storage systems (FESS) offer significant advantages in cycle life, power density and turnaround efficiency for short charge/discharge times, but normally at a higher cost. The goal for this Phase II program is to develop...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Houston

Agency: Navy
Topic: N11A-T028
Budget: 06/27/11 - 04/27/12

AMT proposes a high density energy storage Electromechanical Battery (EMB) based on a unique flywheel system. The proposed module can both receive and deliver significant amounts of energy repeatedly. The system employs a novel ac homopolar motor design which guarantees a zero magnetic and dissipative loss during the storage cycle, thus eliminat...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD10-EP8
Budget: 12/21/10 - 06/21/11

The conversion of mechanical energy to electrical energy or vice versa is achieved with large electromechanical volumes at low rotation speeds. Gears are a convenient way to convert the slow speed, high torque side of ocean energy to a high speed, low torque counterpart. Mechanical gearboxes are beset by life and maintenance issues. If direc...
