 Vertical Wind Turbine2
This is a summary of the scheme design for the Master of Science thesis in Architectural Engineering,Aarhus University. As well as a part of the participation in the Creative Offshore Challenge 2008.In this report the study done regarding the Vertical Wind Turbine design development is explained, and theidea for the further development of the turbine. The project is still in the idea phase.The work period for this scheme design is approximately 7 weeks, beginning October 27
and to be handedin December 17

Summery and abstract 
The focus on environmentally friendly energy (green energy) has during the last decade increased a lot. Thewind energy is already the mainly supplier of green energy, and the 3-bladed Horizontal Axis Wind Turbines(HAWT) is already producing a lot of green energy.The HAWT have been growing in size, during many years, and have reach a limit, where it seems that thestrength of the material are the limiting factor, and in some way also the possibility to transport thecomponents from the factory to the construction site.A short description of the idea behind the Vertical Wind Turbine (VWT) is described here.The VWT is working on the same principles as the Darrieus rotor (See known Technology). The use of liftforces from aerodynamic profiles will give the structure the rotation.Imagine the cut-out of the Darrieus rotor in Figure 1, as seen in Figure 2, with a supporting circle in the topand the bottom. The structure with a top- and bottom-ring is rotating, and the structure is supported at thebottom ring. Between the two rings there can be more than just four blades.To be able to understand the behaviour of a VWT, the most well known technologies are found anddescribed. The aerodynamic influence from the profiles in windward side on the leeward side profiles arediscussed as well as the preconditions for the aerodynamic in this project.There are many parameters to be adjusted and discussed. The discussion of the complex nature of thestructure is a subject that can tell where the next step can be taken on the way to make a design and amodel of the structure.
