The energy density of conventional hydraulic accumulators is significantly lower than competing energy domains. In this paper, a novel solution to improve the energy density of hydraulic energy storage, the flywheel-accumulator, is presented. The flywheelaccumulator integrates rotating kinetic and pneumatic energy storage, where the hydraulic fluid is used… CONTINUE READING
