Experimental And Analytical Investigation On The Vertical Axis Wind Mill Using Different Velocities And Blade Angles

Rayudu Durgaprasad, Mr.B. Srikanth


A wind turbine is a rotary device that extracts energy from the wind. Any wind turbine comprises of three main components namely: rotor, generator and structural support. Based on the alignment of their shafts of rotation, two types of turbines are designed - Horizontal Axis Wind Turbines (HAWT) and Vertical Axis Wind Turbines.

Ever since the Seventh Century people have been utilizing the wind to make their lives easier. The whole concept of windmills originated in Persia. The Persians originally used the wind to irrigate farm land, crush grain and milling. This is probably where the term windmill came from.

In this paper  we are going to do develop an existing wind will and then change the tail angles of the wind turbine blade and CFD analysis is done a different velocities to check whether it withstands or not. So here for the design CATIA Is used and for analysis ANSYS is used and later for the better output the experimental analysis is done using different velocities taken in the ansys. And then the results are compared to get the better output.

Even here the current voltage rating is also calculated for the model using different velocities used.
