Kinetic Energy recovery System

kinetic energy


A moving train contains energy, known as kinetic energy, which needs to be removed from the train in order to cause it to stop. The simplest way of doing this is to convert the energy into heat. The conversion is usually done by applying a contact material to the rotating wheels or to discs attached to the axles. The material creates friction and converts the kinetic energy into heat. The wheels slow down and eventually the train stops. The material used for braking is normally in the form of a block or pad.
The vast majority of the world's trains are equipped with braking systems which use compressed air as the force used to push blocks on to wheels or pads on to discs. These systems are known as "air brakes" or "pneumatic brakes". The compressed air is transmitted along the train through a "brake pipe". Changing the level of air pressure in the pipe causes a change in the state of the brake on each vehicle. It can apply the brake, release it or hold it "on" after a partial application. The system is in widespread use throughout the world.
An alternative to the air brake, known as the vacuum brake, was introduced around the early 1870s, the same time as the air brake. Like the air brake, the vacuum brake system is controlled through a brake pipe connecting a brake valve in the driver's cab with braking equipment on every vehicle. The operation of the brake equipment on each vehicle depends on the condition of a vacuum created in the pipe by an ejector or exhauster. The ejector, using steam on a steam locomotive, or an exhauster, using electric power on other types of train, removes atmospheric pressure from the brake pipe to create the vacuum. With a full vacuum, the brake is released. With no vacuum, i.e. normal atmospheric pressure in the brake pipe, the brake is fully applied.
Kinetic Energy Recovery Systems (KERS) were used for the motor sport Formula One's 2009 season, and under development for road vehicles. Its is being mainly used by Ferrari, renault, BMW and Mc laren. Tt raises the car's center of gravity, and reduces the amount of ballast that is available to balance the car so that it is more predictable when turning. physicist Richard Feynman postulated the theory of transferring the vehicle s kinetic energy using the method of Flywheel energy storage. Zytek, Flybrid, Torotrak and Xtrac are the conventional systems available.

Use in motor sport

Flybrid was the first system to be revealed. It weighed 24 kg and has an energy capacity of 400 kJ . It could provide a power boost of power boost of 60 kW .


FIA allowed the use of 81 hp KERS with some regulations. energy can either be stored as mechanical energy in a flywheel or in a battery or supercapacitor as electric energy.

Autopart makers
Bosch Motorsport Service is an active developer of KERS for motorsports. lithium-ion battery , flywheel, capacitor etc are used to store energy.

Many manufacturers like Honda has been testing KERS systems. Peugeot 908 HY is an Hybrid vehicle with KERS.

KTM racing used a motorcycle with Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) fitted to Tommy Koyama's motorcycle during the 2008. It was illegal and they were warned.
