This paper presents an experimental and numerical simulation to investigate a hybrid vertical axis wind turbine model highly efficient which can be worked at low wind speed by studying the aerodynamic characteristics of four models of hybrid VAWTs. The hybrid WT consists of the SWT having two blades and the DWT type straight having two blades. Four models were constructed to study experimentally and numerically to choose the best model. Two models were DWT in the upper and SWT in the lower, also two odels were SWT in the upper and DWT in the lower. The phase stage angle between the turbines is 0o and 90o . The experimental and numerical results showed that the performance of hybrid WT where DWT in the upper and SWT in the lower with phase stage 90o is better than in the other models, it can be started to work at a wind velocity of 2.2 m/s. At the wind velocity 3 m/s, the values of the parameters are the rotational speed (198 rpm), the CP (0.3195), the CT (0.2003), the TSR (1.6) and self-starting rotation at this value of wind velocity (3 m/s). The efficiency of extracting the wind power by hybrid WT is (51.2 %).
