Flywheel energy storage offers an attractive alternative to the electrochemical battery systems currently used for space applications such as the International Space Station. Rotor designs utilizing the load carrying capacity of carbon fibers wound in the hoop direction are capable of high operational speeds and specific energies. However, the long-term durability of such rotors may be limited by the time-temperature dependent behavior of the epoxy matrix which controls the uniaxial properties… CONTINUE READING
