This paper highlights a VAWT (Vertical Axis Wind Turbine) cascaded along the highway that makes use of the turbulent wind gusts created by fast moving vehicles on the highway and later converting the same into useful electrical energy. The performance of the developed system is tested for both indoor and outdoor conditions. The design of the turbine proves to have a very low tip speed ratio along with a low starting torque. The system is also efficient and accurate as it is able to generate power with low speeds of wind as compared to the various other techniques highlighted in the literature. (Abstract) © 2019 IEEE.
