Flywheels-Function need and Operation
The main function of a fly wheel is to smoothen out variations in the speed of a shaft caused by torque fluctuations. If the source of the

driving torque or load torque is fluctuating in nature, then a flywheel is usually torque engines called time with for. Many to or machines vary two have the are load patterns that cause the

that have fly wheel. Flywheel absorbs mechanical energy by increasing its angular

velocity and delivers the stored energy by decreasing its velocity

Cf = ωmax − ωmin ω Where ωavg is nominal angular velocity Co-efficient of speed fluctuation The above ratio is termed as coefficient of speed fluctuation Cf and it is defined as Cf = ωmax − ωmin ω Indian Institute of Technology Madras .ωmin Fl = ωmax − ωmin We can normalize this to a dimensionless ratio by dividing it by the average or nominal shaft speed (ωave) . Design Parameters Flywheel inertia (size) needed directly depends upon the acceptable changes in the speed.Gopinath & Prof.Mayuram Design Approach There are two stages to the design of a flywheel. Then moment flywheel of geometry in a must be defined sized that caters and is the safe required against inertia reasonably package failure at the designed speeds of operation. First. K. the amount must be of energy and required the for the moment desired of degree of smoothening found (mass) inertia needed to absorb that energy determined.Machine Design II Prof. M. Speed fluctuation The change in the shaft speed during a cycle is called the speed fluctuation and is equal to ωmax.M.
