Airborne Wind Turbine System Development

Maximise the power output of a mini fixed-pitch wind-turbine in a high-dynamic windspeed environment. Set up a physics model accounting for efficiency, drag and inertia on the aerodynamic, mechanical and electrical side. Test your model in the wind-tunnel to verify and optimise, and compete against existing solutions.
