Airborne Wind Energy | Flying Windmills Seminar Report PPT

Seminar Topic: Airborne Wind Energy | Flying Windmills. Download seminar report and presentation on Airborne Wind Energy and Flying Windmills. Airborne wind energy (AWE) regards the generation of usable power by airborne devices. In contrast to towering wind turbines, airborne wind energy systems are either flying freely in the air or are connected by a tether to the ground, like kites or tethered balloons. 

Major Advantages of Airborne Wind Energy Systems

  • First, like solar, wind power is one of the few renewable energy resources that are in principle large enough to satisfy all of humanity’s energy needs. 
  • Second, in contrast to ground-based wind turbines, airborne wind energy devices might be able to reach higher altitudes, tapping into a large and so far unused wind power resource. The winds in higher altitudes are typically stronger and more consistent than those close to the ground, both on- and off-shore. 
  • Third, and most important, airborne wind energy systems might need less material investment per unit of usable power than most other renewable energy sources. This high power-to-mass ratio promises to make large-scale deployment of the technology possible at comparably low costs.

Airborne Wind Energy | Flying Windmills Seminar Report

Airborne wind turbines may soon be generating power from high-altitude winds to provide consistent, clean, cheap, and abundant energy for a power-hungry world. It turns out that all airborne wind energy systems with significant power output are mechanically connected to the ground in order to exploit the relative velocity between the air mass and the ground; in fact, to be able to harvest wind
power, they need to maintain a strong force against this motion. Here we have uploaded three papers for seminar reports. 

The first paper for the seminar report titled Airborne Wind Energy: Basic Concepts and Physical Foundations introduces the main ideas behind airborne wind energy, attempts a classification of the basic concepts that are currently pursued, and discusses

its physical foundations and fundamental limitations. The second paper for the seminar report titled Energy Kite, a breakthrough wind generator: an Overview is a research paper, that provides an overview of Energy Kites, a revolutionary technique of power generation.
