This paper develops a flywheel energy storage system from first principles and illustrates this with a design for PirouetteTM by International Energy Systems. The performance of PirouetteTM is reported together with a discussion on its application to telecommunications. The features of this technology that are beneficial to the operator are identified. The authors discuss flywheel shape, suspension system, power transfer, mechanical failure management, performance, reliability and safety
