This paper presents test results of a flywheel energy storage system (FESS) prototype. The bearing system is composed of a superconducting magnetic thrust bearing (SMB) and a permanent magnet bearing (PMB). The SMB was built with Nd-Fe-B magnet and YBCO superconducting blocks. The PMB has the function of positioning radially the switched reluctance machine (SRM) used as motor/generator and reduce the load over the SMB. The SRM drive is responsible to convert electrical into mechanical energy… CONTINUE READING
