Hi all

I have been looking at understanding power for a simple energy generation concept, and I think that I originally made an error in my calculations because I wasn't considering the relative velocities. So I basically generated the force made by a kite in static conditions, but if I need to generate power the kite needs to move which reduces the velocity that the kite experiences and can use to generator force.

Using relative velocities I have made the calculations as per the attachment. Could someone please confirm that they are correct.

Kind Regards,

Peter
