Automated Hanking-On of WECS on Tethers and Assembly of Complex Lattices
The classic enabling method of flexibly
putting elements on a kiteline is to hank them on manually. A key to many
automated AWES will be the automated hanking on and off of WECS units
(kites, FEGS, etc.) along a gangline. Such devices can be dispensed to and
from containers and be hanked on by varied methods, such as pick-and-place
robots, servoclamps, etc..
