Water and Kite Systems

Methods and costs of fetching water from earth's atmosphere for making hydrogen aloft for use as buoyant gas in some AWES?
  • water      Our main folder on Water and Kite Systems.
    • Resource in its kinetic energy as flow or wave
    • Insert paravanes as anchors to AWECS
    • Electrolyze and use hydrogn when peak consumption of energy is needed.
    • Away from shore for installations
    • Store energy by raising water head.            hydraulic head
    • hydrophobic, or water-repelling        Hydrophobe
    • hydrophilic, or water loving.   hydrophile

  • water battery  (distinguish kinds of water batteries. Here we intend to consider water-head's potential energy as a battery. A dam has this quality; a tank of water holds potential energy by virtue of its height above drop point. Kites pumping water to load a high tank or reservoir stores energy; releasing the water back down to a lower tank can be used to drive an electric generator.)

  • water relaunchable kite  AWECS at sea during calm may have kite rest on water surface only to be relaunchable upon breeze return. Automatic relaunch off water is a target.

  • Calvert estimated in 1974 : 10,000 delta kiters.  In 1974, Calvert was quoted in the newspaper: "Most of the Florida kiters fly behind boats, " say Calvert. "In California and other states with high mountains, free-falling from mountain peaks is almost as popular as free-falling after letting go of a boat's towrope."  Calvert showed that he did not know about Palmer, Purcell, Hobson, Burns, and the pilots of the Richards delta wing ... all before May 1963, some way before.
