Gondola Turbine Array Demo
USWindlabs requested on this
forum that KiteLab Ilwaco develop and demonstrate suspended turbine
The World's First Gondola Turbine Array has
been flying for days without mishap at KiteLab's cableway AWE research
center. The array dynamics are quite nice; one can even loop the entire
array like a jump-rope without fouling. The suspended turbines are built
along KiteLab's well established AWE UltraTurbine (TM) pattern, but with a
swivel to take wind from any direction.
Phase One is complete and the deliverables are presented below as
Phase Two will fly the array on moving cableways from kites.
