The concept behind flywheels is quite simple; objects in motion continue in motion unless acted upon by an outside force. Flywheels have been used for more than five thousand years in applications such as textile spindles and potter's wheels, and were adapted to machine use during the industrial revolution. What's this have to do with Uninterruptible Power Supplies?
The answer is Active Power's patented integrated flywheel UPS technology. Flywheel systems store kinetic energy - energy produced by motion - by constantly spinning a compact rotor in a low-friction environment. When short-term backup power is required because utility power fluctuates or is lost, the inertia allows the rotor to continue spinning and the resulting kinetic energy is converted to electricity.
