The Darrieus wind turbine is a type of vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) used to generate electricity from the energy carried in the wind. The turbine consists of a number of aerofoils vertically mounted on a rotating shaft or framework. This design of wind turbine was patented by Georges Jean Marie Darrieus, a French aeronautical engineer in 1931.

This plan is an ebook and will be delivered electronically. The Darrieus wind turbine is a horizontal design and can be used in moderately windy area. The plan contains a lot of detail about construction together with a list of parts required.

Horizontal machines some times known as HAWT (Horizontal Axis Wind Turbines) are the traditional conventional design, they consist of a rotor with one to twenty blades driving a generator or a pump either directly or through a gearbox, chain or belt system. A tail vane or fantail is required to direct the machine into the wind.

They are usually more efficient than vertical axis units known as VAWT (Vertical Axis Wind Turbines). Savonius and Darrieus are two designs of vertical axis machines. This type of unit is often not situated on a tower and does not have to be directed into the wind. Materials and construction are usually cheaper than horizontal axis machines.


This is an unusual design with the blades designed to be made from formica, arborite or masonite

In edition there is an introduction to Darrieus wind turbines and how they work plus website links. There is also a link to a community website where you can discuss the plan and progress.

This plan is not in the public domain and resell rights are not included.
