Firing, Regulating, and Dousing Looping Foils
Looping tethered foils in synchrony can aggregate great power to a single
generator. Linked oscillators tend to naturally synch, but fine tuning of
frequency is desirable. A novel approach to setting frequency is to
modulate static tug by a pilot-lifter kite. More pull speeds up the orbit;
less pull slows.
