VAWT, Savonius, Renewable Energy


The fastest growing renewable energy sector in India is wind energy which is vital for economic growth of the country and since independent India has worked on its resources for increasing its capacity. Keeping this point in view, we thought to fabricate vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) and analysis the performance in different conditions. In this project we consider two types of blades with two different materials with two different altitudes to assess the the performance and check the condition that gives maximum output. The model made is Savonius type and DC motor is used inversely with Savonius input connected to motor shaft and electrical output taken from the terminals of the motor and this output is utilized to run an application. We also added one solar panel to the turbine to increase the output from the turbine. The main aim of this project is to assess the power output using combination of 2 renewable energy sources with low cost and maintenance. These turbines can be installed on road dividers to utilize wind energy coming from vehicles. The energy produced makes the model a reliable source of continuous energy.
