Abstract:

This paper discussed renewable energy the bed rock of power stability in Nigeria with wind turbine as a reference point. Vertical wind turbine was worked upon relevant mathematical analysis on wind turbine construction and design were carried out, analysis on wind density, power generated, from the wind turbine, kinetic energy in air, solidity of the wind turbine and area of the blades were also analyzed. This paper also deals with various types of wind turbine and specific attention was on Vertical wind turbine, with other types of wind turbine in this research such as Modern wind turbine, Horizontal wind turbine. It was found that in our geographical area the vertical wind turbine is better, after various calculations and analysis were carried out on the various wind turbine that were researched upon.


Keywords: Turbine, Induction Motor, Mechanical Coupling, Energy, Frictionless Bearings, Gears.
