  • "UC3M has developed LAKSA, an open source simulation package to study the dynamic and control of AWE systems"
    • "LAKSA's module named KiteFlex can be used to study ground-generation and fly-generation systems"

Paper

Experimental setup to study airborne wind energy generation using a train of kites
H. Endo, K. Arakawa, G. Sanchez-Arriaga, H. Fujii, H. Okubo, Y. Takahashi, Airborne Wind Energy Conference, Freiburg, (2017)
"We present an experimental study of airborne wind energy generation with a vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) lifted by a kite train to higher altitude"
