A multiple flywheel is studied for the purpose of storing and recuperating kinetic energy. The objective of the design of such systems is a maximum storage and recuperation of the stored energy. The dynamical models of the proposed and the conventional system are compared. Coefficients of storing and recuperating efficiency are introduced for demonstrating the advantages of the multiple flywheel system. An optimization is made regarding to maximum recuperating efficiency.
