Presentation of an experimental campaign for measuring performances and effects of a 50-square-meter kite set-up on a 13-meter trawler

Abstract : This paper describes an onboard measurement campaign held in Grande-Rivière, Gaspésie, province of Québec, Canada, in October 2015, involving a 13-meter trawler equipped with a 50-square-meter kite. The aim of the campaign was the assessment of the boat performances when kite is used. To achieve this purpose, in addition to the kite control system, a set of sensors has been installed. Thus data were recorded, as boat velocity, force generated by kite, fuel consumption, boat attitude, torque and rotational speed of propeller shaft, rudder angle and wind velocity. During the trials, runs with kite in static flight were done, with around 12 knots of true wind speed. The data post processing is presented in this paper, and allows to estimate a lift to drag ratio around 6 of the kite and the tethers. This is consistent with other experimental data published.
