Abstract: Conventional flywheel system uses a single rim flywheel. The performance of the flywheel depends upon its mass, so also it encounters a lot of air friction and leads to more in-efficiency and more occupation. Flywheel releases stored energy by applying torque to a mechanical load, thereby decreasing the flywheels rotational speed. The dissertation work shows the flywheel optimum design model which fulfils minimum criteria of inertia result into safe and efficient working. In this study work on CAD base design and analysis with experimental base model generation in a feasible area of design. For a optimum design consideration of flywheel compare parameters like torque, power, efficiency with respective to speed. The experimental study and analysis shows the feasible area of design with torque Vs speed comparison by showing no changed in a considering design parameter as per the conventional design. The Power and Efficiency Vs Speed characteristics comparison shows that there is approximately in between seven to eight percentage increase in power output and five to six percentage efficient than the conventional flywheel respectively which will also result in increasing fuel economy of the engine efficient.
