Abstract
The purpose of this study is to develop a suspension system for flywheel en ergy storage, that is, a flywheel battery (FWB), on electrical or hybrid el ectrical vehicles (EV. HEV). If the FWB is operated on vehicles, the gyrody namics increases the loads of the rotor support bearing and the occupied sp ace of the FWB. In order to eliminate the influence of the gyrodynamics, th is paper presents a suspension system composed of a gimbal, actuators and a gain-scheduling controller. Furthermore, the simulation and the experiment al results shown in this paper confirm the validity of the proposed system. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
