Abstract

A vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) is gifted to pleasurable to accomplish the desires of human requirements. In totalling up to time from environmentally, it is moderately very cheaper than as compared among conventional methods of electric production at present. Kinetic energy i.e. wind velocity is used to produce electricity by altering the mechanical energy, which is easy to get to in abundance and unlimited. By using this sort of classifications, they would be no pessimistic effects on the surroundings. As the upholding cost and operating cost are insignificant this is better than other conventional methods.The present research work aims in evaluating the performance of savinous type vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) at various wind speeds trapped at Sultan Ul Uloom Education Society Campus (MJCET, Hyderabad Latitude) on NACA 0020 aero foil profile blade by keep angle of attack as constant throughout by using CFD Tool. Blade angle 0˚ and curvature of blade at 15˚ were assumed.
