Abstract: Vertical Axis Wind Turbines (VAWT) are becoming popular due to a low capi newlinetal and operating cost. Most of the earlier work on VAWT is focused on improving newlinethe power performance. However, self-starting wind speed is another important newlineperformance parameter of VAWT which helps in improving overall power perfor newlinemance of turbine due to increase in overall operating period. The current research newlinework is focused on developing various conand#64257;gurations of multi-storey vertical axis newlinewind turbines for improving the self-starting wind performance along with im newlineprovement in power performance. In this study, three major tasks are performed newlinewhich include developing CFD models and comparing their performances with the newlinewind tunnel models, structural analysis of turbine and testing of full scale proto newlinetype for obtaining various performance parameters. Objective of the and#64257;rst activity newlineof CFD modeling and comparing the performances with wind tunnel models is to newlinedesign suitable multi-storey model and get more insight about these newly devel newlineoped models. Six diand#64256;erent conand#64257;gurations of VAWT are developed based on the newlinesize of the wind tunnel and the wind tunnel performances are of these models are newlinecompared with CFD performances. The study is initiated with focus on selecting newlineappropriate number of stories in the turbine. Therefore, the performances of three newlinediand#64256;erent conand#64257;gurations of turbines viz. one storey, two storey and three storey newlineturbines are studied. The self starting speed and power coeand#64259;cient performances newlineare obatined through wind tunnel tests. newline
