A Superior System
Working from the research, data and product development of former parent company Calnetix, VYCON has created a unique line of production-oriented flywheel systems - systems using proven state of the art technologies produced at costs that will be competitively priced in the energy storage market.
The VYCON flywheel stores kinetic energy in the form of a rotating mass and is well suited to high-power, short-discharge applications. Patented technology used within the system includes a superior high-speed motor/generator and unique contact-free magnetic bearings that levitate and sustain the rotor during operation. In addition, the system features an advanced control system that provides feedback on system performance. These breakthrough technologies enable the VYCON flywheel to charge and discharge at high rates for countless cycles. They also render conventional technologies out-of-date, if not obsolete.
As a result, VYCON is able to produce robust, durable, high-speed flywheel systems that are available at costs which make flywheels a viable DC power alternative.
