Main project: Permanent magnet thrust bearing in flywheel energy storage system
Funding: UCL Assistant / Wallonia
Supervisor(s): Bruno Dehez

A flywheel energy storage system is an appropriate storage system for railway applications, to store the braking energy of a train untill needed for the acceleration of another train.
Our research concerns the permanent magnet bearing of this system. By stacking permanent magnet rings, we allow to develop the needed thrust force while using a minimum amount of permanent magnet volume. Simple and general scaling laws allowing a fast sizing have been proposed for different bearing geometries; with and without iron.
The behavior of the permanent magnet bearing with the operating temperature has also been studied.
