Abstract: Turbine design is usually fascinating to research the optimum layout of the wind turbine system are studiedby several researchers however it still continue d up to now. The purpose of this study is to implement and demonstrate a fully automated (self-start) system to optimize a vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) aerofoil cross-section. The goal is to maximize torsion while imposing constraints on typical wind turbine design such as tip speed ratio, strength and blade profile. There is an aerofoil cross-section and solidity for which the torque can be maximized, allowing the implementation of an iterative design process, by evaluating the maximum velocity of the wind turbine. In this analysis, a small VAWT has been investigated. With many tasks to identify the crucial elements of the wind turbine, the design modifications were initiated, subsequently the modifications were evaluated and strengthened in line with the origin of weakness. Thus, we came to a conclusion that composite material (Glass fiber) made blade profile generated to be effective in durability, High strength and stiffness, Light weight, Corrosion resistance, Design and formulation flexibility.
