NASA Wind Energy Airborne Harvesting System Study

Laddermill overview June 2010 Add Video

This is the Laddermill power plant, a project of Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands. The Laddermill produces power when the kite unrolls a cable from the drum, that drives the generator. When the cable is reeled back in less energy is consumed. In this way energy is produced every cycle. This video shows the status of the system in June 2010. The system consists of a 20kW generator and a custom built 25m2 bow kite and 50m2 foil kite.
