Renewable energy must be stored in order to make itreliable. Flywheels are capable of storing high amounts ofenergy and can also be used as power buffers, due to theirhigh power densities. This paper investigates a way tosmooth the power output from renewable energy converters(wave, wind and marine current) by adding a doublewoundflywheel energy storage to the system. Simulationsshow that a ramp-controlled flywheel energy storage woulddrastically smooth the short time power from a wave energyconverter but not be that appropriate for longer termenergy storage. The power quality enhancement producedby the addition of the flywheel to the system is alsosimulated and discussed.
