India has the fifth largest power generation portfolio in the world and its current renewable energy contribution stands at 44.812 GW which includes 27.441 GW of Wind power and 8.062 GW of Solar power installed capacity in the country. (As on 31.07.2016). It is a world of renewable energy because we care having source freely available in bulk. We believe in “GO GREEN” theory. So we are trying to implement a new vertical axis wind turbine by using magnetic levitation. This paper represents maglev windmill concept. The main concept is magnetic levitation. These concepts introduced in windmill for maximization of the energy production & reduced friction. In wind turbine stator and rotor are magnetically levitated such that no physical contact between them and avoiding friction. When air comes in contact with blade it starts rotating and electromagnetic generation activates in levitation area. Its bearing less levitation avoids overheating and increases efficiency. A prototype version of project will built which could generate voltage from the turbine even in low as well as high rotational speed.
