Short summary
Rotary airborne wind energy (RAWE) machines transform wind energy into electric energy by transmitting the mechanical torque produced on a rotor to a generator on the ground by using its own structure, which is a spinning helix. Having a good understanding of the behavior of the helix is crucial in the design of RAWE machines. This work presents a theoretical model to simulate the helix’s dynamics and experimental tests to characterize it.
