Paper Title:
Simulation and Test for Two Airfoils with Wind Guide Vane of VAWT
  Abstract

Two airfoils of vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) were designed, and the wind guide vane was added for VAWT. By using Fluent and the environment wind tunnel, some results were simulated and tested for two different types of airfoils and its wind guide vane. The performance data on certain condition was obtained. Research showed that utilization of wind energy with guide vane wind turbine was higher than those without guide vane structure. The performance of airfoil was more excellent than airfoil . Wind guide vane structure is a new structure for wind turbine which will have a wide prospect.
