Abstract

The aluminium blades are less cost and light weight when compared to carbon fibre and steel material. Among the advantages of this arrangements of gear box and generator can be placed close to the ground and the blade axis is perpendicular to the wind streamline. The aerofoil shape and manufacturing technique gives more lift, drag and further more power generation. The objective of this VAWT to generate electricity in urban areas with less setup cost. The main advantage is that, it is economically eco-friendly.
