The characteristics of the Vertical Axis Wind Turbine make it possible to use generating techniques not suitable for Horizontal Axis Wind Turbines. Methods for converting mechanical energy into electrical energy are presented and discussed for vertical turbines of the 250 KW to 2500 KW size. This paper will also look at the present status of Vertical Axis Wind Turbine research in the United States.
