Windmills appeared in Western Europe between 1300 and 1875 AD [18]. Interestingly, these windmills had horizontal axes that were parallel to the ground. The axis faces into the wind and the blades rotate perpendicular to the flow of air. It is unknown why the switch from vertical to horizontal axis windmills

The two main types of turbines are Horizontal-axis Turbines (HAWT) and Vertical-axis turbines (VAWT). HAWT have the rotating axis oriented horizontally. They typically feature 3-blades and are designed to face to the wind. VAWT have the rotating axis aligned vertically and are designed to harnesses kinetic energy in the opposite direction.

Vertical axis windmill: In these types of windmills, the main rotor shaft is placed transverse to the wind. While the main components are located at the base of the turbine. Horizontal axis windmill: In these types of windmills, turbines have the electrical generator and main rotor shaft placed at the top of a tower pointing to the wind ...

Horizontal axis windmills have the rotor shaft and electric generator at the top of the tower and it is pointed in or out of the wind. Smaller turbines are indicated by a simple wind vane, while larger turbines use wind sensors coupled with an auxiliary motor.

HAWT (horizontal axis wind turbine) also includes in the famous types of wind turbines. The main shaft of a HAWT fixes in the horizontal direction to the ground, and this makes it different from a vertical axis wind turbine. In simple words, the rotating axis of a horizontal axis wind turbine is positioned in a horizontal direction to the ground.

Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine (HAWT) Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine (HAWT) Horizontal axis machines have emerged as the most successful type of turbines. These are being used for commercial energy generation in many parts of the world. They have low cut-in wind speed, easy furling and, in general, show a high power coefficient.

A vertical axis windmill, comprising an immovable, hollow circumferential frame having a plurality of peripheral openings through which wind can enter to form a substantially horizontal air flow inside said frame; and rotatable turbine arranged inside said frame and connectable to a generator of electric energy, said turbine having a plurality of vanes each having a working …

Vertical home wind turbines are designed with blades which point straight toward the sky, rather than outwards (though are just as aerodynamic as horizontal turbine blades) – this is to maximise the space available to the homeowner, who likely does not have the free available land necessary to install a standing horizontal turbine.

Vertical Axis Wind Turbines (VAWTs) spin around an axis vertical to the ground, spinning like a giant weathervane and exhibiting the opposite behaviour of horizontal turbines.

Horizontal axis wind turbines are generally built to have a capacity ranging between 2 to 8 MW, depending on the usage. While the output of a wind turbine depends on the turbine's size and the wind speed, an average onshore wind turbine with a capacity of 2.5 – 3.0 MW can produce more than 6 million kWh in a year, which is enough to supply ...

Vertical axis wind turbines are set up in a different way as the generator is on the ground versus horizontal axis windmills of being high up in the air. Vertical axis windmills have a main rotor shaft arranged vertically. This is a great solution over the horizontal axis windmills as it can take advantage of the wind coming in from any direction.
