Micromotors for Storage applications

Welcome to the realm of mechanical energy storage, where the ingenuity of engineering meets the dynamic needs of energy management. In this innovative domain, the focus is on storing and retrieving energy through mechanical means, offering solutions that seamlessly balance efficiency, reliability, and sustainability. 

Join us on a journey through the diverse applications and technologies that shape the landscape of mechanical energy storage that include the combination of a motor + a generator. Here is how our disruptive small motors technology can help to explore the power of kinetic and potential energy harnessed for a greener and more resilient future.

Flywheel Storage

A flywheel designed for energy storage is a mechanical apparatus that stores kinetic energy within a rotating wheel. It undergoes acceleration during surplus energy periods and releases stored energy as required, converting kinetic energy back into electrical energy via an integrated generator. Key features of this motor include its ability to efficiently store and retrieve energy, making it a valuable technology for short-term energy storage applications like grid stabilization and uninterruptible power systems.

Benefits of using Mirmex generators 

  • High Efficiency:  Generators should exhibit high efficiency in converting the rotational energy of the flywheel into electrical energy, minimizing energy losses during the storage and retrieval process.
  • Fast Response Time: Given the rapid nature of energy storage and retrieval in flywheel systems, generators must have a fast response time to efficiently capture and release energy when needed.
  • Durability and Reliability: Generators must be robust and durable to withstand the mechanical stresses and high-speed rotations associated with flywheel energy storage, ensuring long-term reliability.
  • Perfect Balancing: with a much higher degree  of customization than traditional wire-based micromotors, Mirmex devices offer an optimal balance between the performances in generator vs. motor mode.
