The performance of the vertical axis wind turbine is characterized and it is analyzed. In this research work, NACA 0018 aerofoil structure is used for modeling the wind turbine blades. The arm length of the blades is reduced. The performance is analyzed using the ANSYS FLUENT. The performance is carried by varying the arm angle to 30, 45, 60 degree and study the comparative results performance of the three inclined angle turbine blade of same length and chord length. Turbulence model is used for the simulation of the wind turbine blade. Turbulence, pressure, and vorticity of the wind turbine are taken for the performance analysis and results is reported for each arm inclination angle.
