Everyday we waste a precious energy - kinetic energy.So,to save kinetic energy is to save oil.The working functions of the machine is like the F1 of KERS system.
The structure is compact and easy to operate.It's more compact and efficient.Conversion efficiency around 99%.

Flywheel Hybrid Technology
Torotrak is a UK-based company that's developing a technology called a
flywheel hybrid. Instead of using a big, heavy battery to store energy, the
Torotrak system uses a spinning flywheel. It's simple and lightweight
compared to traditional electric hybrids, and it's even going to be used in
Formula One race cars. There's no word yet if any automakers are signing
up, but if it starts winning races you can bet they'll be all over it.
F1 KERS system 2009

Kinetic Energy Recovery Systems (KERS) have been introduced into Formula
One as part of the sport's major regulation change for 2009. A means to
recover energy created under braking, the new regulation will see all teams
running either a battery or flywheel system this season in an effort to
improve racing. With the potential for the systems to be filtered into
other applications, KERS is also one of the sport's major green
initiatives. Williams is the only team on the grid to be using a flywheel
system which is demonstrated in this film, together with the team's Chief
Designer, Ed Wood and CEO of Williams Hybrid Power, Ian Foley
3 TON FLYWHEEL 'COLD-START-UP' @ Trimpley Steam Rally 2 Aug 09 Vic & Roger Starting the Petter
Brought to you by 'Racerroy'
Enjoy watching Vic Narborough assisted by Roger Coleman Start ONE of only
a few remaining of its kind IN THE WORLD a Vickers Petter 2 cylinder
Diesel engine, designed by Rudolf Diesel and built in 1926 by Petters,
Rudolf Diesel was born on the 18th March 1858 and died 29th Sept 1913
This engine was built in Ipswich and it pumped fresh water at a location
somewhere in North Yorkshire and then stood idle for many years.
According to its current owner when he was made aware of it and its
whereabouts made an approach to the owner with a view to buying it which he
The Engine weighs in at 9ton and the Flywheel weighs 3ton, at 250rpm it
will develope 125bhp, it is mounted on a 1979 Foden and the combined weight
is + 20 ton. the Foden Lorry started life as a Snow Plough & Gritter for
Monmouth County Council.
While being used for demonstration the Vickers Petter 2 cylinder Diesel
uses about 1gallon of fuel per-hour.
Sadly Vic the owner [the one smoking a pipe passed away Dec 2012] rest in
Subaru Flywheel lightening and Balancing
Watch John Edwards @ Costa Mesa R&D Automotive Machine as he lightens and
balances a brand new Subaru flywheel on the Sunnen DCB 750 balancer.
Subaru CVT in Action
From the Detroit Auto Show (NAIAS), this demos the CVT as used in the
Outback as it goes from "low" to "high" gear. Note the change in ratio
between the upper (input) and lower (output) pullies.
Lego 1500 rpm V8

The engine actually runs at 1540 for a second or two. I still have lots of
work to do untill this runs as desired (1600-2000 rpms), but it has come a
long way. At the end you can hear the compressor kicking in.
KERS - Explained
How does KERS work? What is a kinetic energy recovery system? This video
explores the Porsche 911 GT3-R Hybrid, and how it uses a flywheel to store
energy for an additional 160 hp for a short period of Boost.
