  • Re: Negative-Lift AWES Methods

    - ​By pitch control we have had option of negative lift for wings. Airfoils rising and then AoA change to airfoils diving; such gives up-and-down cycles. -

  • Negative-Lift AWES Methods

    Low-Complexity AWE starts with cheap bulk Lift as a primary force, with added WECS generally accounted as Drag force. An interesting class of methods can use

  • Re: Pitch, Yaw, Roll

    All AWES show mixed modes of Pitch-Roll-Yaw. AWES can exploit various mixed or pure modes, just as Joe suggests. Kite riggers constrain these motions by

Group Description

International rapid AWES development (RAD) of airborne wind energy conversion systems (AWES).

Kite energy systems work to fulfill tasks or provide energy for others to use.

Advance the science and art
of tethered craft (anchors may be fixed, mobile, moving, or even flying)
for capturing and utilizing
fluid stream kinetic energy.

Analogues in air and water form one art party. Domina Jalbert made it clear to the world that any sky-kite system has its obvious analogue in water, and thus obvious to those skilled in the arts.

Top-level AWES aspects: Designing, Validating, Inspecting, Assuring Safety, Assuring Quality, Siting, Communicating, Insuring, Certifying, Operating & Maintaining, Piloting, Observing, Controlling, Advertising, Selling, Adjusting, Decommissioning.

We have many leaders discussing and sharing technology.
"a leading company in airborne wind energy" will be applied to those sharing in this forum.

Un-tethered airborne wind power plants are included. RATs on powered aircraft and unpowered aircraft are embraced in this forum. IFOs are welcome.

A simple kite is already a wind turbine performing works. But this forum aims to advance kite systems for accomplishing small and humble tasks and huge global heavy industrial tasks. The tasks may include such as lifting, pulling, radiating light, radiating electricity, transporting goods and people. Thousands of tasks await solutions by kite systems (AWES).

AWES Forum Policy:
Unfriendly, profane, harassing, or abusive manners are not allowed on the AWES forum; but sincere technical disagreements, with supporting evidence, and posed in mild language, are welcome.
