Abstract:

In this study, we research and develop a program by using single stream-tube theory combined with vortex model which can simulate the torque and power characteristics in this study. To check the efficiency of this program, a model of SB-VAWT was designed and made which had 2 KW capacities at wind speed 12 m/s. Wind tunnel tests were carried out on this model and the test data were analyzed and compared with the simulation results.
