Abstract :

A windmill is a machine which converts the energy of wind into rotational energy by means of vanes called sails or blades. The history of wind power shows a general evolution from the use of simple, light devices driven by aerodynamic drag forces; to heavy, material-intensive drag devices; to the increased use of light, materialefficient aerodynamic lift devices in the modern era. Modern wind turbines fall into two basic groups 1) horizontal-axis variety 2) vertical-axis design. There are certain advantages and disadvantages of Windmills
