Power generation with EnerKíte
Cyclic generator operation
During the harvesting phase, the wing flies eight-shaped paths in the wind and, which produces large forces that pull ropes from the drums of the ground station. A generator converts this rotation of the drums into electricity (G). As soon as the wing reaches the rope's end, it glides back to the initial height. The tethers are rewound with minimal energy input, and the cycle repeats again.
