There is abounded wind available to entertain our energy requirements if it could be utilized in an effective manner.Wind turbines are able to generate enough power thus decreasing the need for expensive power generators that cause pollution. In comparison to horizontal axis wind turbines (HAWTs) the vertical axis wind turbines (VAWTs) are much more efficient and reliable because of its simplisity and cost effectiveness.This study in vestigates that wind energy is able to cope with the energy crisis we are currently having all over the globe. Although the use of Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine (HAWT) in today’s world is more than the Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT) but they have some issues as they require higher wind speed as compared to VAWT to generate enough mechanical work to produce electrical power. Peshawar highways wind profile was implemented in this experiment. The wind on highways is not constant all the time as it is dependent on the moving vehicles and varies time to time. The project can be theoretically implemented in the light of Peshawar highways wind profile. Wind energy could be valuable source of energy because of its importance of environmental friendly and free of cost once it is installed. The main goal of this research is to model such type of VAWT for high-ways to get kinetic energy produced by the air flow of moving vehicles and to transfer that energy into mechanical energy furthermore that mechanical energy will be converted to electrical with the help of generator. This vertical axis wind turbine is feasible on high ways due to its unique structure. It can capture the wind in both directions on highways. The project is tested in both theoretically and experimentally and it outclassed all previous models.
