    United States Patent for System and Method for Airborne Wind Energy Production Issued to Ampyx Power

    June 20, 2022 - Energy Patent News


      Alexandria, June 15 -- United States Patent for system and method for airborne wind energy production has been issued to Ampyx Power. This invention was developed by Ruiterkamp Richard. The patent application number is 17/074,833. The International Patent Classification codes are B64C 39/02 (20060101), H02G 11/02 (20060101), F03D 5/02 (20060101), B64C 31/02 (20060101), B64C 19/00 (20060101), F03D 5/00 (20060101), F03D 13/20 (20160101) and F03D 9/25 (20160101). Cooperative Patent Classification codes are B64C 39/024 (20130101), B64C 31/02 (20130101), F03D 5/02 (20130101), H02G 11/02 (20130101), B64C 39/022 (20130101), F03D 5/00 (20130101), F03D 9/255 (20170201), F03D 13/20 (20160501), B64C 19/00 (20130101), F05B 2240/923 (20130101), F05B 2240/92 (20130101), F05B 2240/921 (20130101) and Y02E 10/70 (20130101).

      The abstract released by U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states, "A system for electric power production from wind includes a glider having an airfoil, an on-board steering unit, a flight controller for controlling the steering unit, and a connection unit for a tether. The system further includes a ground station including a reel for the tether, a rotating electrical machine connected to the reel, and a ground station controller for controlling the reel and the rotating electrical machine. A master controller operates the system in at least first and second operation modes. In the first operation mode electric power is produced with the rotating electrical machine from rotation of the reel caused by reeling out the tether using a lift force generated upon exposure of the airfoil of the airborne glider to wind. In the second operation mode, the reel is driven by the rotating electrical machine, thereby reeling in the tether onto the reel."
