This thesis develop a real time simulator for an acrobatic kite, called LAKSA Simulink. The simulator is based on a Matlab code, called LAKSA, which describe the kite behavior using Lagrangian equation. This code is made of functions with different tasks, from describing the kite behavior to plot it. This thesis implement Matlab code into Simulink and add some functionalities: user input, allowing the user to control the kite; and real time simulation. This thesis aims to create a simulator that works as efficient as possible, that is why during the evelopment of this thesis, the improvement of the performance of the simulator and reduction of the computational time have been taken into consideration. During this thesis, different data regarding the kite behavior and the simulation performance are obtained and they are analyzed in order to study the effect of the user input in the kite behavior, and the influence of each task of the simulation in the simulator performance.
