摘要

A tether‐powered unmanned aerial vehicle is presented in this article to demonstrate the highest altitude and the longest flight time among surveyed literature. The grid‐powered ground station transmits high voltage electrical energy through a well‐managed conductive tether to a 2‐kg hexacopter hovering in the air. Designs, implementations, and theoretical models are discussed in this research work. Experimental results show that the proposed system can operate over 50 m for 4 h continuously. Compared with battery‐powered multicopters, tether‐powered ones have great advantages on specific‐area long‐endurance applications, such as precision agriculture, intelligent surveillance, and vehicle‐deployed cellular sites.
