Application of Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT) for generation of power is gaining momentum. However no research has been done to increase the efficiency of blade design for bidirectional wind flow. In the present study the effect of blade profile and thickness for a Savonius wind turbine has been studied. Different blade profiles with thickness 2 mm, 4 mm and 6 mm were modelled. A numerical analysis was done for a bi-directional wind input. The model for the rotor was designed on Solidworksdoi:10.26713/jims.v10i1-2.1053 fatcat:ugpnbargqbh3leqxp3rxri6wbq
