Experimental results

KE60 prototype is positioned on a trailer for fast deployment, allowing for experimental tests in different Italian locations including alpine valleys and islands. The flight and generation tests showed a very good matching between the computer-based simulations and the recorded data.

The experimental results give a strong confidence in the numerical and theoretical tools, which can be therefore employed to perform a realistic study of the energy generation potential of large KITEnrg–farms, composed of several KITEnrg–yoyo generators.
