This paper deals with the design of a flywheel motor/generator set as an energy source for an eight-section hypervelocity linear induction coil launcher. The paper presents a conceptual design of the flywheel motor-generator set which use a structure that was chosen from the literature. A previously developed simulation program was modified to include the generator equivalent circuit and its flywheel inertia. A few simulation results are also included in the paper to demonstrate the applicability of the concept
