Optimization of an Airborne Wind Energy system using constrained Gaussian Processes


Wind resources tend to be significantly stronger and more consistent with increasing altitude. This effect creates a potential for power generation that can be reaped by an Airborne Wind Energy system positioned at elevations exceeding the height of conventional wind turbines. A frequent design for such a system includes a flying airfoil tethered to a… (More)
