    Simulation and Control of a Kite


    Producing clean renewable energy is a common energy source. But the current need for this type of energy is not yet sufficient to replace coal- or gas-based energy sources. In the last decade, an alternative wind generation method, namely, Airborne Wind Energy System (AWES) is explored, which uses the strong winds at high altitudes. This thesis focuses on a framework to simulate and control of an Airborne Wind Energy System (AWES). In particular, a novel concept of a three-tethered ground station called ”3r Ground-Gen AWES” is investigated. Thus, a behaviour based control is used to navigate the airborne system without the use of a predefined trajectory.
