Transcript of Airborne Wind Turbines

WHAT IS AN AIRBORNE WIND TURBINE?
An airborne wind turbine is a design concept for a wind turbine with a rotor supported in the air without a tower, thus benefiting from more mechanical and aerodynamic options, the higher velocity and persistence of wind at high altitudes, while avoiding the expense of tower construction, or the need for slip rings or yaw mechanism.
WHY IT WOULD WORK.
They're portable.

They're computer controlled, requiring no onboard pilots and few operators.

No expensive infrastrucre.
Thank you for your time.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The AWTs themselves are essentially conventional propeller planes, with the propellers acting to get the kite airborne, and then once in position the propellers work in reverse, spinning as the wind hits them acting as small electric generators, the electricity comes down the tether cable to the ground station.
WHY IT'S A GOOD PROJECT.
It's innovtive. It's the wind turbine of tomorrow. It's an exciting prospect.
