Kite power is a promising innovative technology for converting wind energy into electricity at a higher capacity factor and, for many applications, at a lower cost than conventional wind turbines. However, accessing this potential depends substantially on the availability of sophisticated control systems. Delft University of Technology is developing a kite(More)
The traction power of kites can be used for wind energy conversion at a potentially low cost. Crucially important is a reliable control of flight path and tether reeling. The present study proposes a modelling framework describing the dynamic behaviour of the interconnected system components, suitable for design and optimization of the control systems. The(More)
