Abstract

The conservation of kinetic energy in automobile engine is very essential. To keep the kinetic energy in efficient way, an automobile system utilizes an additional unit that functions as temporary kinetic energy storage called flywheel. However, the existing flywheels still unable to anticipate energy draining when it receives high rate of deceleration. This drawback should be eliminated to gain more energy conservation in the automobile powertrain. To address this issue, the present research proposes a better flywheel concept with improved energy handling capability. The proposed flywheel is constructed with multi-inertia discs, called primary flywheel and secondary flywheel. Furthermore, between the primary and secondary inertias, there are magnets and conductive plate that would produce a magnetic engagement based on Eddy current coupling. In this design, the flywheel offers a new advantage that introduces as an auto-reinforcement feature which means that it has an ability to recover the draining kinetic energy when drastic deceleration occurs due to sudden loading or sudden braking.
