An airborne system for producing electricity from wind energy includes a shaft, at least two turbines rotatably mounted to the shaft and arranged to rotate independent of one another and in opposite directions when subjected to the same wind, and generators which convert rotation of the turbines into electricity. The magnitude of electricity generation by the generators is related to the magnitude of torque induced by the generators on the shaft, and the electricity generation by the generators may be controlled such that torques induced on the shaft by ...
The invention claimed is: 1. An airborne system for producing electricity from wind energy, comprising: a turbine section comprising: a shaft; at least first and second turbines rotatably mounted to said shaft and arranged to rotate independently of one another and in opposite directions about said shaft when subjected to a same wind; and at least first and second generators respectively coupled to said at least first and second turbines and arranged to convert rotation of said first and second turbines into electricity, said generators being mounted so...
