The Energy Kite M600 is the wind generating supplement by Makani Power for the traditional wind turbines. Through this technology, the generated power can be directly transferred from the kite to the grid below via the anchoring tether.
It contains the 26 meter carbon fiber wing along with the tether which can work as the result of onboard computers that has been equipped with custom flight controller software.
This kite is very efficient in terms of harvesting energy as well as it circles in 250M loops attach to a wire tether. This kite has been equipped with eight powerful rotors.
By this technology, 600KW of power generation can be done. It has the mobile capabilities which give it more flexibility in comparison to traditional turbines. The eight motors on the kite function much like the blades on the wind turbine. As the craft flies in the circular path, air start moving across the rotors drives a generator that produces electricity.
After that, the electricity travels down the wire tether and then it transferred to the ground station. The station takes up essentially less space in comparison to the conventional wind turbine as well as it can be installed in places which are not suitable for conventional turbines such as areas which are too hilly or remote.
