Mathematical Model To Calculate The Performance Of Low Power Vertical Axis Wind Turbine

Vertical axis wind turbines do not require airflow direction position control system, which is an advantage over horizontal axis wind turbines. However, wind power absorption efficiency of vertical axis wind turbines is much less, so it is important to assess the capacity of the wind turbine. This article describes mathematical model to calculate the performance of low power vertical axis wind turbine. Index Terms- Mathematical Model, Power Factor, Swept Area.
