PhD Thesis

Aeroelastic Analysis of Kites applied to Airborne Wind Energy Systems

Supervisors

Abstract

This thesis will be focused on the analysis of aeroelastic aspects of kites (flexible and rigid) applied to wind energy generation. The methodology will be gradual, starting developing and/or employing more efficient but less representative models and aiming at raising their complexity and fidelity along the thesis.
