Abstract—This paper presents the method of harnessing the turbulent winds generated by the high way traffic by use of Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT). By combining numerous VAWT, the turbulent winds created by the surplus flow of High Way traffic can be used to generate electricity which can be used for the highway lighting and the Toll gates in the High way. It also helps in providing efficient lighting to reduce the high way accidents. To design and Analysis of the model by using Pro/E and, CFD software. The Further developments of model by various methods.
Index Terms—VAWT, Model_Pro/E, CFD, Helix blade, turbulent winds, surplus flow, Fibre glass
