The EnOrnis project is an attempt to escape from the concept of synergy. The principle laid down in the basis is the division of a single task of obtaining the energy of high-altitude winds into subtasks. In the context of a single task, the following problems are known:
- The choice of the best way to transfer the captured energy to the ground.
- Stabilization of flight and operation of the device under various weather conditions.
Here are indicated the principal problems for which no solution has been found.
There are also a number of tasks that have already been solved in one form or another for many decades:
1. Lifting the system to a high altitude (up to 11 km) and holding there without using external energy (kite, balloon)
2. The conversion of wind energy into the selected for transmission to the ground (turbine, kite)
3. Conversion of the received energy from the transmitted form to electric (coil, rotor generator)
Separation of the system into physically independent components allows for a fundamentally new approach:
1. Each component performs its task in the best possible way.
2. Each Component can be replaced with a new one having better characteristics.
3. In each component, the experience of other systems performing this function can be maximized.
4. The design of a specific component can be handled by a separate team with a specialization in the industry.
5. An object-oriented approach is observed (input and output parameters with closed internal code), which facilitates the design of other components.
Any large object in the uncontrolled natural element becomes difficult to control. This problem EnOrnis solves by creating a cloud of wind turbines, each of which has a small power.
EnOrnis also has the following advantages over other projects.
1. Higher location of the wind power converter, which allows you to catch a wind of greater speed.
2. Stationary location of the converter in the air is the possibility of designing it for specific characteristics of air and wind.
3. Constant energy capture (without zero phases, as in Laddermill).
4. Minimize resistance to headwinds at the cable (as in Laddermill at the time of a counter flight to the wind).
5. Stationary location and as a consequence the absence of a complex control system (like Laddermill)
EnOrnis divides the flying wind generator into the following components:
- Liftter. Raises and holds the system at a certain height.
- Catcher. Transforms wind energy into a convenient for transmission.
- Transmitter. Transfers energy to the ground.
- Converter. Converts energy to electricity.
