This paper presents an analysis of the possible performance of a proposed airborne rotor type electricity generator wind turbine design. The innovative design proposal by inventor is based on the rotation of the airborne structure with blades attached to the airborne zeppelin and thus it is called an airborne rotor generator. In this paper computational fluid dynamics analysis of a model close to the proposed design is carried out and the results are presented. The proposed design examples are set to produce 10-100KW. The electrical energy generated through two symmetrically placed alternators at both ends of the zeppelin is transferred to the ground-based system through the tethered cords used to also stabilize the system. Thus, an airborne rotor generator is formed.
