Title: STACKED FLYWHEEL ROTOR
Abstract:
Embodiments of the subject invention are directed to a flywheel rotor that includes two or more sub-rotors stacked one on top of another, in which each sub-rotor is rotationally symmetric and disk shaped, where the axial centers of each sub-rotor in the stack are rotationally aligned, and each sub-rotor has an upper and a lower journal that extends outward from the origin of the center section of the primary rotational mass of the sub-rotor. Each pair of adjacent sub-rotors in the stack has a lower journal of an upper sub-rotor that is disposed above an upper journal of a lower sub-rotor. Also, there is a joining mechanism between each pair of adjacent sub-rotors that fixedly connects the lower journal of the upper sub-rotor to the upper journal of the lower sub-rotor.
