Finite Element Analysis, Flywheel


Flywheels serve as kinetic energy storage and retrieval devices with the ability to deliver high output power at high rotational speeds as being one of the emerging energy storage technologies available today in various stages of development, especially in advanced technological areas. There are many causes of flywheel failure among them one of is the non-linear behavior of the flywheel. Hence in this work evaluation of non-linear stresses in the flywheel for different material is done. The design of flywheel is used by solid work software. The software used for analysis and apply forces for validation of flywheel is ANSYS. The FEA of flywheel is considering centrifugal forces on its comparative non-linear analysis is done for von-mises stress, shear stress and deformation of the flywheel made of Cast iron and aluminium alloy. The paper also gives a topology optimization approach in reducing the mass of flywheel.
