Abstract [en]

The importance of the use of renewable energy sources is obviously. But what the problem confused us, is that renewable energy unlike the fossil fuel have such high energy density which means the renewable generally was dispersed form. In other words, in order to obtain amount of the energy we need, require to exploitation a wider cover area. Therefore, scientists and companies are struggling to find high densely renewable energy as possible, which is high altitude wind energy, have very promising but not developed so much by humans. High altitude wind power is indicating the altitude between 3000 meters and 10000 meters. So far, high altitude wind power is a new renewable energy that basically not development or utilization yet, but which is an abundant reserves. High altitude wind power is a widely distributed renewable clean energy. The characterized of high-altitude wind energy is fast speed, wide distribution, high stability and perennial. Utilize high-altitude wind power can get high stability with low cost of wind power generation, which is one of the notable features for high-altitude wind power, but also is one of the most significant advantages for high-altitude wind energy compared to conventional wind energy. High altitude wind power generation equipment is more compact and flexible, far superior then the traditional fan, which equip with thick blades and the tower must be fixed in the depths of the ocean or in the ground.To development renewable power in a large scale, to face the global climate change, achieve the sustainable development become the inevitable for human development. How to solve the energy shortage problem has become an important question, harness high altitude wind power was becomes the focus of multinational technology.
