Abstract

This paper presents the comparison of power captured by vertical and horizontal axis wind turbine (VAWT and HAWT). According to Betz, the limit of maximum coefficient power (CP) is 0.59. In this case CP is important parameter that determines the power extracted by a wind turbine we made. This paper investigates the impact of wind speed variation of wind turbine to extract the power. For VAWT we used H-darrieus type whose swept area is 3.14 m2 and so is HAWT. The wind turbines have 3 blades for each type. The air foil of both wind turbines are NACA 4412. We tested the model of wind turbine with various wind velocity which affects the performance. We have found that CP of HAWT is 0.54 with captured maximum power is 1363.6 Watt while the CP of VAWT is 0.34 with captured maximum power is 505.69 Watt. The power extracted of both wind turbines seems that HAWT power is much better than VAWT power.
