Vertical Axis Wind Mill is pleased to make available the work built Savonius rotors – one in Wales and the other in rural Zambia. This manual details the construction of these machines. Both VITA and the author offer this manual with the hope that it first puts the rotors in a perspective which allows potential builders to judge the applicability of such machines for meeting their needs and then provides effective guidelines for constructing each.
The S-rotor, as it is more popularly known, is easy to construct. For this reason and others (not the least of which is that an S-rotor can be built for relatively small expense), people build rotors before they have investigated their own needs fully and/or have weighed these against the rotor’s somewhat limited potential. The rotor will not meet all needs, and careful consideration of all factors and possibilities is essential for success. For those who decide to build rotors, step-by-step construction details are provided. The manual includes a two-stage rotor for pumping water. The Savonius rotor – also called the S-rotor – is a vertical-shaft wind machine. The rotor is relatively easy to construct, especially if made from standard galvanized sheets which are generally available throughout the world, at a nominal cost. Because it rotates on a vertical shaft, the rotor can turn in wind coming from any direction and will start turning in very low winds
