As airborne wind energy is a relatively new field, much of the current research is rapidly progressing towards the development of larger commercial systems with larger airborne components. Farms of airborne wind energy systems can provide higher power generation than a single kite system and offer a potential solution to issues that single kite...

A new field of study has arisen within Wind Energy known as ‘Airborne Wind Energy’ (AWE). Although the concept of AWE has been around for a long time, there has been little development in this field until recently. This thesis adds to this development.

The focus lies on airfoil design in order to improve existing AWE systems and...

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 (AWE) is a field of engineering that utilizes tethered aircraft for the generation of electrical power. The potential for the application of AWE in deep-water offshore environments on top of floating foundations is enormous. Where conventional wind turbines would require a very stable platform to reduce motions at the...

Pumping kite power systems are a promising way of harnessing clean energy from high-altitude winds. A large kite flies crosswind developing a strong pulling force through a tether which is connected at the ground to an electrical generator. The power output of such innovative systems is directly related to the wing aerodynamic properties which...

Since the beginning of the century the field of airborne wind energy has emerged to provide with new means of generating renewable energy. It's ability to access higher altitudes and it's relatively low material requirements with respect to conventional wind turbines, have inspired several research institutes and commercial parties to invest...

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...

Rising demands in energy consumption necessitate the development of low-cost renewable power generation. A Kite Power Sytem (KPS) is a novel approach to harvest wind energy with kites at higher altitudes than is possible with conventional wind turbines, at a lower cost. In this thesis, an approach to improve the winch controller of a KPS will be...

Bontekoe, E. (author)
The basic model of the principle of crosswind power as described by Miles M. Loyd in 1980 (Loyd, 1980), promises a high energy revenue from airborne wind energy. With a growing awareness of the need of sustainable energy resources and the current technological possibilities, different initiatives are undertaken to harvest the energy of wind at...
