Abstract - The cutting edges assumes Savonius rotor. The Darrieus wind turbine is a VAWT that
fundamental part in the exhibitions of vertical hub wind pivots around a focal hub because of the lift delivered by the
turbine. This paper introduced the diverse surveys related turning airfoils, while a Savonius rotor pivots because of the
