Airborne wind energy (AWE) is a new generation of wind energy technology which uses tethered kites to reach the stronger and steadier high altitude wind resource. Research and development of AWE has been accelerated in the last two decades. Around 40 institutions around the world are working on their own concepts and architectures of the...

Airborne wind energy (AWE) is a new technology aiming at converting wind energy by flying crosswind patterns with a tethered aircraft. One of the main challenges of this technology is the launching and retrieving of the aircraft. A promising solution is the use of a vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) system in the form of multiple electrically...

In the present world of conventional wind energy, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) 5MW reference wind turbine for offshore system development has become an important piece of the puzzle towards a renewable future based on wind energy. DTU showed the benefit of such a reference model with their 10 MW reference wind turbine and...

Airborne Wind Energy is a technology where wind energy is harvested with tethered flying devices. Kitepower uses flexible leading edge inflatable kites, but these have a scaling disadvantage in that they become heavier with size. A single skin kite has the potential of negating this disadvantage while at the same time being more aerodynamically...

On a typical 2D LEI kite profile, ow separation is expected to occur on both suction and pressure sides of the airfoil. This thesis is aimed to study various inviscid ow models that are capable of modeling such multiple ow separation phenomena. Inviscid models are capable of modeling single ow separation region over typical airfoils. In these...

A method is introduced to measure the in flight flow field and geometric shape of an energy producing kite. The method is applied on beach tests during controlled flight maneuvers as well as equilibrium positions. The measurements of different sensors are validated by use of independent coherence of the found results. After this the deformations...

Airborne Wind Energy is a promising technology that is becoming the point of interest for many applications. One market in which the AWE systems can open a path as a renewable distributed generator is in offgrid communities or camps. Nowadays, this market is dominated by fossil fuel energy like diesel generators. Even though the diesel is cheap,...

Airborne wind energy is a new research field that aims to harvest winds at high altitudes. The pumping kite concept investigated at the Delft University of Technology is based on leading edge inflatable kites that divide a generation cycle into three phases: traction, retraction, and transition. This research project aims to optimise the...

Models of kites with inflatable support structures that are both fast and accurate can accelerate the development of airborne wind energy systems. The fast particle system approach has not yet been used to model inflatable beam structures. The goal of this research is to investigate if the bending behaviour of inflatable beams can be modelled...

Kite Aerodynamics Airborne Wind Energy (AWE) systems operate at high altitudes, where wind velocities are higher in magnitude and more constant with respect to lower heights at which for example wind turbines operate. The ASSET department of the Delft University of Technology uses a concept which consists of a flexible Leading Edge Inflated (LEI...

During the development of an aerodynamic analysis tool to predict non-linear lift and drag coefficients, research was performed on arbitrary wing configurations focusing on airborne wind energy (AWE) applications. The purpose of this research is to develop and examine the accuracy of computationally fast aerodynamic methods. The non-linear part...

Kite Power Systems present technological advantages over traditional windmills. In this work, the design of a dual wireless link for kite applications requiring high reliability and low delays is presented. The link provides realtime data exchange between the system components that allows researchers to run closed-loop controllers, and to...
