Surface Electricity (SE)
Material surfaces without flow vary in electrical resultant.
Material surfaces in media flow?
What is the electricity resultant when wings and tethers move through media as air, water, plasma, and the like?
How might SE be harvested and used for secondary purposes? Onboard AWES? Off-AWES?
Eather One: the electric plane that uses air friction to generate power
What might SE be for energy kite systems and other airborne wind energy systems?
