A multiple flywheel has been studied for the purpose of storing and recuperating kinetic energy. The objective of the design of such systems is a maximum storage and recuperation of the stored energy. Dynamic models of the proposed and the conventional systems are compared regarding energy losses. A coefficient of recuperating efficiency is introduced for demonstrating the advantages of the multiple flywheel system.
