General energy storage conceptsEdit

1. Using a high density magnetic field. Energy [math]E[/math] in terms of magnetic field strength [math]B[/math] is

[math]E = \frac{1}{2}B^2 = \frac{1}{2}Li^2[/math]

where [math]L[/math] is the inductance of the electromagnet and [math]i[/math] is the current.
