Future of Wind Energy: Airborne Wind Turbines

Summary

Typically, wind speed increases with altitude, which presents a trade-off between the higher energy production and the costs of constructing taller towers. The diurnal pattern of low winds at night shifts at heights of 40–50 meters, leading to more consistent winds and greater energy capture, often known as a low-level jet. In regions like the Great Plains of the USA, the high wind speeds of the jet stream are accessible without reaching altitudes of 10 kilometers. Low-level jets are also found in tropical regions and over bodies of water. Most large commercial wind turbines currently have towers ranging from 60 to over 100 meters. For example, in 2017, Max Bögl Wind AG installed 3.4 MW wind turbines on 178-meter towers in Germany, innovatively using the tower's base as a storage tank within a pumped hydro system. Around fifty companies and research institutes are investigating airborne wind energy systems (AWES), which capitalize on the stronger, more consistent winds at higher altitudes, with reduced structural requirements and no need for a tower. These systems, operating at heights of 50 to 1,000 meters, may include kites, balloons, or drone-like systems with turbines and generators positioned aloft, transmitting power through tethers, or with ground-based generators. Kites or wings typically navigate crosswind in loops or figure-eight patterns and can be either soft or rigid. Some AWES incorporate drone technology, employing small propellers for flight control and vertical takeoff and landing, in addition to wing technology. Autonomous control systems, which require robust software, are essential for these technologies. This field has experienced significant growth since 2005, with many companies now displaying informative videos online. In ground-based generator models, the ascending segment of the flight loop generates power due to the absence of rotors. Small rotors might be utilized for takeoff and landing, even with a ground-based generator. Alternatively, a concept involves a ground rail track where a kite draws a wagon, also termed a cart or bogie, with a generator linked to its wheels, serving as a lift translator. Professor Wubbo Ockels of Delft University of Technology envisioned the LadderMill, resembling wings on a ladder akin to a vast clothesline, which is essentially a lift translator with its top end upheld by a sail or balloon. In this design, wings are aligned for optimal lift on one side, while on the opposite side; they are positioned to bear their own weight. This idea developed into the LadderMill project at Delft University of Technology. Interestingly, a sailboat operates as a lift translator too, moving swifter than the wind when sailing across it and slower when sailing downwind, functioning as a drag apparatus. Here is a summary of the different types of airborne wind turbines: 1. Ground-Gen Systems: In Ground-Gen systems, the conversion of mechanical energy into electrical energy takes place on the ground. These systems typically involve a ground station connected to the airborne component via tethers. Examples of Ground-Gen systems include setups where the ground stations are fixed on the periphery of a rotor of a vertical axis generator, or on trolleys that move along closed or open loop rails. 2. Fly-Gen Systems: Fly-Gen systems involve the conversion of mechanical energy into electrical energy on the airborne component itself. These systems typically feature a flying device (such as a kite or aircraft) that generates electricity while in motion. Fly-Gen systems are characterized by the energy generation phase during crosswind flight and the recovery phase to minimize energy consumption during retrieval. 3. Semi-Rigid Wings: Some AWES prototypes utilize semi-rigid wings that are aerodynamically designed to capture wind energy at high altitudes. These wings are tethered to the ground and can generate electricity through their motion in the wind. 4. Special Design Kites: Another type of AWES involves special design kites that are flown at high altitudes to capture wind energy. These kites are connected to a ground station via tethers and can generate electricity as they move through the air. 5. Aircraft-Based Systems: Certain AWES concepts involve the use of aircraft as the airborne component to capture wind energy. These systems may employ drones or other types of aircraft equipped with energy generation mechanisms to convert wind power into electrical energy. 6. These various types of airborne wind turbines demonstrate the diversity and innovation in AWES technology, each offering unique advantages and challenges in harnessing high-altitude winds for renewable energy generation. The determination of the best type of airborne wind generator depends on various factors such as efficiency, reliability, scalability, cost-effectiveness, and environmental impact. Each type of airborne wind generator has its own set of advantages and challenges. Here are some considerations for selecting the best type of airborne wind generator: 1. Efficiency: The best airborne wind generator should be able to efficiently convert wind energy into electrical power. Systems that can capture and utilize wind energy effectively, with minimal energy losses, are considered more efficient. 2. Reliability: Reliability is crucial for continuous power generation. The best airborne wind generator should be reliable in various weather conditions and operational scenarios to ensure consistent energy production. 3. Scalability: Scalability is important for adapting the airborne wind generator to different power requirements and locations. Systems that can be easily scaled up or down based on energy needs are advantageous. 4. Cost-effectiveness: The cost of installation, operation, and maintenance is a significant factor in determining the best airborne wind generator. Systems that offer a good balance between cost and performance are preferred. 5. Environmental Impact: Minimizing environmental impact is essential for sustainable energy generation. The best airborne wind generator should have low environmental footprint and be eco-friendly in its operation. 6. Technological Innovation: Innovative features and advancements in airborne wind generator technology can enhance performance and efficiency. Systems that incorporate cutting-edge technologies may offer superior benefits. 7. Operational Flexibility: The ability to adapt to changing wind conditions and operational requirements is important. Airborne wind generators that can adjust their operation to optimize energy production are desirable. 8. Ultimately, the best type of airborne wind generator will depend on the specific needs and priorities of the project or application. It is essential to evaluate each type of generator based on these factors to determine the most suitable option for a particular use case.
