This paper provides the complete information and the reasons for the low power extraction from the wind by the wind turbines. The opposing wind forces are completely neglected with the help of a deflector such that the speed of the turbine shaft is increased faster than normal, even at very low wind speed (1m/s). Almost all the wind turbines extract only 50 to 60% of total wind power due to low speed. This is due to the wind resistance in the blades. Wind turbines are generally located at a higher altitude nearly 100 feet above the ground level in order to acquire a large wind power. The main objective of our project is to increase the speed of the rotor shaft even at low speed of wind (1 m/s), using a modified design in order to increase the power production.
