A flywheel is nothing more than a heavy mechanical device attached to the shaft to store surplus rotational energy. It acts as a rotating reservoir which store energy; when its available in abundance and release when most needed much like a battery. It has a significant weight in respect to the crankshaft assembly; and thus helps maintain torque resisting rotational speed. They are generally installed in system’s with varying load and fluctuating torque; as in internal combustion engine.
