Competition between SMES and flywheels

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The benefits of flywheel energy storage using high-temperature superconducting bearings is compared to that of SMES for the same applications. Flywheels cover the same range of energy storage times as SMES but their scaling relationships make them inherently more amenable to modular manufacture. In addition, the magnetic fields seen by the environment are considerably reduced for flywheels.
