Racecar Engineering has an interesting article on flywheel KERS. While the article spends most of its time tracking the history of how former Renault F1 engineer, John Hilton, developed his flywheel KERS and started up his Flybrid Systems company with Doug Cross, it does give some insight into how flywheel kinetic energy recovery systems work. As it is written for an engineering magazine, it assumes a level of engineering knowledge.
