Airborne wind energy (AWE) is an emerging field that aims to revolutionize the wind energy sector.This work focuses on the aspects of modeling AWE kite flight behavior. Research on such modelsis important since new or improved models can potentially reduce development time and costs andprovide insight in the role of key system parameters.This...

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...
