Article Citation :Yin Yin Htay Aung ,Myat Myat Soe ,Aung Myat Thu , (2016 ) " Design and Performance Testing of a Small-Scaled Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine For Low Wind Speed Regions " , International Journal of Mechanical and Production Engineering (IJMPE) , pp. 89-94, Volume-4,Issue-12

Abstract : In this paper, locally developed small wind turbine was tested to observe power performance at low wind speed range of 1.5m/s to 6m/s. Thin airfoil was selected from well-known series for low Reynolds’ number due to low wind speed. SG 6043 airfoil was used for low Reynolds’ number 150,000 [12]. The turbine blades were fabricated from Ya-Ma-Nay wood because of its easily available, light weight, good strength, and low-cost. The design rotor swept area was 2 sq. meters and its design angle of attack was 5. Tip speed ratio was chosen 6 for three-bladed wooden wind turbine. The rotational speed of rotor was designed 500rpm at rated wind speed 6 m/s. Performance Testing was carried out on the roof of Main-Building at Mandalay Technological University, Mandalay. The wind turbine hub placed 16 m above the ground. The experimental data were measured every 15 minutes. Instantaneous cut-in wind speed occurred around 3.5 m/s and average cut-in wind speed occurred 2.5 m/s. The power versus velocity curves were shown for the turbine blades’ performance. Index Terms- Low wind speed, performance test, thin airfoil, Ya-Ma-Nay wood.
