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 vehicleâ„¢s kinetic energy using the method of Flywheel energy storage. Zytek, Flybrid, Torotrak and Xtrac are the conventional systems available.

Use in motor sport

History
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

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.

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

Motorcycles
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.

kinetic energy

ABSTRACT

[/u]
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)

.doc   Kinetic Energy Recovery Systems.doc (Size: 854 KB / Downloads: 82)

What is KERS?

The acronym KERS stands for Kinetic Energy Recovery System. The device recovers the kinetic energy that is present in the waste heat created by the car’s braking process. It stores that energy and converts it into power that can be called upon to boost acceleration.

How does it work?

There are principally two types of system - battery (electrical) and flywheel (mechanical). Electrical systems use a motor-generator incorporated in the car’s transmission which converts mechanical energy into electrical energy and vice versa. Once the energy has been harnessed, it is stored in a battery and released when required.
Mechanical systems capture braking energy and use it to turn a small flywheel which can spin at up to 80,000 rpm. When extra power is required, the flywheel is connected to the car’s rear wheels. In contrast to an electrical KERS, the mechanical energy doesn’t change state and is therefore more efficient.
There is one other option available - hydraulic KERS, where braking energy is used to accumulate hydraulic pressure which is then sent to the wheels when required.

Do the regulations place limitations on the use of KERS?

Currently the regulations permit the systems to convey a maximum of 60kw (approximately 80bhp), while the storage capacity is limited to 400 kilojoules. This means that the 80bhp is available for anything up to 6.67s per laps, which can be released either all in one go, or at different points around the circuit. Lap time benefits range from approximately 0.1 to 0.4s.

How is the stored energy released by the driver?

The regulations stipulate that the release must be completely under the driver’s control. There is a boost button on the steering wheel which can be pressed by the driver.

Why was KERS introduced?

The aims are twofold. Firstly to promote the development of environmentally friendly and road car-relevant technologies in Formula One racing; and secondly to aid overtaking. A chasing driver can use his boost button to help him pass the car in front, while the leading driver can use his boost button to escape. In line with the regulations, there are limits on the device’s use and therefore tactics - when and where to use the KERS energy - come into play.

Is a car running KERS heavier than one which is not running the system?

No. A typical KERS system weighs around 35 kilograms. Formula One cars must weigh at least 640kg (including the driver), but traditionally teams build the car to be considerably lighter and then use up 70kg of ballast to bring it up to weight. This means that teams with KERS have less ballast to move around the car and hence have less freedom to vary their car’s weight distribution. Heavier drivers are at a particular disadvantage, an issue addressed by the raising of the minimum car weight for the 2011 season.

Do teams have to use it?

The use of KERS is not compulsory. Several teams used it during its introductory 2009 season. A gentlemen's agreement between constructors then precluded its use in 2010, before its return in 2011.
