This paper presents an approach for the optimization of Lenz type vertical axis wind turbine (vawt) design. The main objective of this paper is to design the Lenz type VAWT for domestic applications which can generate electricity on diminutive scale in order to make urban areas of Gujarat state self sustainable and energy secure in the area of energy requirements. From this paper one can learn a design procedure for latest invented Lenz VAWT. From the design calculation and based on previous research data in related domain, basic design parameters of Lenz type VAWT is derived which are tip speed ratio, wing dimensions etc.
