Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Kinetic Energy Recovery Systems (KERS) are automotive systems whereby the kinetic energy of a moving vehicle is recovered under braking and stored in a reservoir (either a flywheel or a battery) for later use under acceleration. KERS was used for the motor sport Formula One's 2009 season, and is under development for road vehicles. However, KERS was abandoned for the 2010 Formula One season, but has been reintroduced in 2011. The Formula One teams that used Kinetic Energy Recovery Systems in the 2009 season are Ferrari, Renault, BMW, and McLaren. One of the main reasons that not all cars use KERS is because it adds an extra 25 kilograms of weight.show more
