Model-based identification and control of the velocity vector orientation for autonomous kites


In this paper we address a control problem for an autonomous tethered kite system for the purpose of airborne wind energy generation. In particular, we design a tracking controller for the velocity vector orientation of the kite. Motivated by empirical data we model the kite steering behaviour as a delayed dynamical system and explicitly utilise the derived… (More)
