The presented research work focuses on utilizing wind energy for power production by developing a small-scale wind turbine, as an alternative to conventional energy sources like fossil fuels which are rapidly depleting and also harming the environment on global scale. In the undertaken work, a simple selfpropelled vertically-mounted rotor turbine has been fabricated. An NACA0018 airfoil was selected for the prototype and the model was subjected to a dessert cooler at different speed for study and optimization of turbine for aerodynamic performance.

Keywords : Wind turbine, HAWT, VAWT, aerodynamics, optimization.
