Investigation on Wind Power Generation for Dhaka Chittagong Highway Based on Ve Wind power or wind energy is the use of air flow through wind turbines to provide the mechanical power to turn electrical generators and traditionally do other work. Wind power is a sustainable and renewable alternative for burning fossil fuels, and has much less effect on the environment. Electrical energy demand has been continuously increasing. Power generation using wind turbines is becoming viable solution as there is a demand for cleaner energy sources. Vertical axis wind turbines (VAWTs) are more efficient than the horizontal axis wind turbines (HAWTs) for low wind speed applications because of their ability to capture wind flowing from any direction. Therefore, VAWT systems are more suitable for residential and urban applications as they are universally adaptable. Major limitation observed in VAWT is high drag and turbulent force produced by the blade. In this thesis we are utilizing the air force that is generated due to vehicle velocity in Dhaka-Chittagong highway. We are using NACA-2424 as airfoil. NACA 2424 airfoil is selected and analyzed within the required range of Reynolds numbers and wind speeds in Q-Blade software. It is found that the power output is 100W at wind speed of 6 m/s. The estimated price per turbine is approximately 30500 takas only
