VYCON® Direct Connect (VDC®) systems are highly efficient kinetic energy storage systems, which provide consistent and dependable energy for critical power systems.
The VDC energy storage systems hold kinetic energy in the form of a rotating mass, and convert this energy to electric power through patented technology within the flywheel system. Our unique technology includes a high-speed motor generator, active magnetic bearings that are used to levitate and sustain the rotor during operation, and a superior control system that can provide information on the system performance. These innovative technologies enable the VYCON flywheel to charge and discharge at high rates for countless cycles making conventional technologies like batteries obsolete.
This technology is ideal for a variety of applications as a battery-free UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) solution, including data centers, healthcare facilities, broadcast stations and other mission-critical operations that require up to 30 to 40 seconds of backup power.
