Abstract: Renewable energy resources (RES) are much needed one, due to the existing use of fossil fuel which emits CO2 during utilization. This CO2 causes global warming which means increasing earth temperature. Mostly CO2 emission occurs in power generation. This global warming and CO2 emission make earth is unsuitable for living. To avoid this, we have the best solution that is RES. In this RES, wind energy is the most likely unit for power generation; it is not only for power generation, and it can be used for pumping of water too. We use this wind energy from an earlier day. Wind energy is the most abundantly available clean form of renewable energy in the earth crust. Wind turbines produce electricity by using the power of wind to drive an electric generator. The present study aims to design and develop a low-speed vertical axis wind machine. New types of Savonius wind turbine 3D model was created using SolidWorks software. Numerical simulation of the new design for parametric investigation using ANSYS Fluent, evaluating the performance of the newly developed rotor and fabricate the proposed model.
