One of novel concepts to use the energy of high altitude winds is by launching a series of kite on a long rope and let them pull the rope thus driving the generator. A mathematical model of tethered kites system has been developed consisting of models of kites and of the cable that links them together and to the generator on the ground energy station. The model described is then investigated for stability in various wind conditions including random wind gusts which require stochastic stability problem statement.
