Jaguar reveal Flywheel system for premium cars

A of UK automotive companies has showcased a flywheel hybrid system for vehicles at the Low Carbon Vehicle at Millbrook, Bedfordshire. The system is to add up to 82PS (60kW) of recovered and is predicted to demonstrate fuel gains of 20% relative to the current model. Testing work is underway.


The consortium includes some of the most respected names in engineering — Jaguar Rover, Flybrid Systems, engineering consultancies Prodrive and and transmission experts Torotrak and Together, they will the viability of flywheel hybrids for and cost-effective modular application. is being provided by the UK’s Strategy Board.

Compared to hybrid systems, flywheel reduce the number of energy onboard the vehicle, improving the of the regenerative braking system. of converting kinetic energy electricity for storage in a battery, a continuously variable transmission connected to the car s rear differential the energy directly into a high-speed flywheel. When the reapplies the accelerator, the CVT smoothly the energy back to the wheels.

Commented Pete Richings, engineer at lead partner Land Rover: This project explores the potential for efficient and cost-competitive hybrid that improve fuel while enhancing standards of refinement and performance. We have the base technology, built the and will be testing it in the next few to see if it lives up to its potential.

The flywheel-CVT system uses a developed by Flybrid Systems. at speeds of up to 60,000rpm enables the to achieve a high energy making it smaller and easier to The CVT, which manages the speed and the flow of kinetic has been built by motorsport Xtrac using Torotrak’s drive technology.

Automotive Prodrive is responsible for the system’s and integration into the vehicle. The is also developing the system’s control software and electronics.

Torotrak is also involved in two industrial projects that use a lightweight version of its CVT platform, to deliver a rated power of The projects are also part-funded by the Technology Strategy Board. The — ‘Flybus’ — Allison Transmission and bus manufacturer and uses a flywheel developed by consultancy Ricardo. The second, the ‘KinerStor’ project looks at kinetic energy recovery for mass-market applications, using CVT technology.

Industrial partners include firm CTG, JCB, Rover, SKF and Williams Hybrid
