Among the several problems arising in the Airborne Wind Energy paradigm, an essential one is the control of the tethered airfoil trajectory during power generation. Tethered flight is a fast, strongly nonlinear, unstable and constrained process, motivating control approaches based on fast Non-linear Model Predictive Control. In this paper, a computationally efficient model is proposed, based on Differential-Algebraic equations. A control scheme based on Nonlinear Model Predictive Control (NMPC… CONTINUE READING
