Design and Analysis of Kite for Producing Power up to 2.6 Watts
This paper presents a novel technique with the optimization of Airborne Wind Energy System (AWES) to generate energy that combines with experimental results. An economic and simply moving blade system has been proposed in this work as conventional wind energy methods require heavy towers, deep foundation, huge blades, and high maintenance. A simple kite with two different blade arrangements has been tested at three different locations. The adopted artificial crosswind motion has the potential to increase the power generation capacity as compared to the stationary flight. A maximum of 2.6 watts and a minimum of 0.03 watts power have been accomplished by the proposed model.
