In this thesis,we raise an idea of the design of a wheel-track vertical axis wind turbine after presenting a contrast of the applied strengths and weaknesses between traditional HAWT and newfangled VAWT. The Magnus effect based on Kutta-Joukowski's theorem is applied to the design of the turbine blades. To realize this assumption,a concrete turbine mathematical model is set up and a detailed analysis of the performance of the blades of the newfangled wind turbine is followed. Meanwhile,several points of reflection about the research and development of this newfangled wheel-track wind turbine which can be driven by Magnus force is derived in the research process. We make a primary investigation on how to improve the efficiency and performance and avoid existing problems of this wind turbine by reasonably and effectively using the new technique under modern industry situation.
