The field of Airborne Wind Energy is concerned with harvesting high-altitude wind power; the corresponding group in Delft, in particular, is investigating the suitability of a kite for this purpose. Due to the high complexity that such a system ensues, it is of interest to have a fundamental understanding of the critical aero-elastic modes of...

Through the analysis of historic cases high-tech innovations, a selection process has been devised to accelerate sustainable innovations to large-scale adoption. The niche strategy selection process has been applied to, and validated with, the case of kite-based Airborne Wind Energy, resulting in an overview of its barriers and guidance to...

A tethered wing can be used in two different ways, to lift payload or to provide traction power. The latter is the basis of several innovative technical applications, such as kite-assisted ship propulsion and pumping-kite wind energy conversion. This thesis presents a theoretical analysis of traction power generation by a tethered wing. The...

In this thesis we present a novel solution to the kite trajectory tracking problem using an explicit control law. Compared to alternative approaches, such as model predictive control, our approach has three major advantages: a stability proof, ease of implementation, and minimal modeling requirements. The latter is especially important for...
