How do you calculate the energy stored in a power spring? For a uni project one of my concepts is a KERS which stores the cars kinetic energy in a power spring. under braking a shaft connected to the cars drive train is engaged which is connected to a few power springs as shown here http://www.spiroflex.com/pdfs/Mtr_spr_A_B_eng.pdf when the shaft rotates it coils the springs around it. How can i calculate the energy stored and torque output?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
