Formula 1 team to use prototype energy storage on Metro system
Williams F1 a Formula 1 team have offered Shenzhen Metro Group the chance to use their prototype energy storage machine in the uncompleted Metro System in a chance to help save energy. Williams F1 was established in 1977 and have won the F1 crown sixteen times of the span of 30 years.
The prototype energy storage machine when integrated into a racing machine, any energy generated when the brakes are used is stored in the machine, and every time the car accelerates the stored energy can be used as power. Unlike the small prototype version, Williams F1 will use a high power electromechanical flywheel system a patented technology. The team developed the machine in its Williams Technology Center in the Qatar Science and Technology Park.
The machine can deliver increased efficiency in rapid transit, smart grids and any high power and high cycle applications. When used on trains it can generate energy every time the train decelerates to stop at stations, then uses the stored energy to accelerate. Metro No. 3 Line Investment Co. showed interest in these time of technology, and offer its Metro lines as an experimental venue for Williams F1 large flywheel energy storage machine once the it goes into production and the technical specifications are available.
