Kite-Hybrid Power-Plants (SSS Clutch Application)
It has long been proposed on the AWES Forum
that legacy power-plants based on fossil-fuel sources might be converted
to kite hybrids in selected cases (where wind, land, and airspace
availability are favorable). The idea is particularly compelling where
regulatory limits exist on air pollution and/or capital is limited to
cover wholly new generation capacity. We learned that the simplest
kite-hybrid case is to boost the steam cycle of steam turbines, reducing
demand for boiler fuel. Interjecting kite power to increasingly dominant
gas turbines is a more complex problem.
