Abstract: The rapid depletion of fossil fuels has resulted in the gradual shift towards renewable sources of energy, such as wind energy but nevertheless the efficiency of traditional wind mills is only in the range of 30-40 . In order to counter this defect, the technology of Vertical Axis Wind Turbine was developed (VAWT). As the name suggests VAWT is a turbine whose axis is vertically mounted. This produces a drastic change in the efficiency of the device. However, during adverse conditions of weather, extreme wind speeds can have a detrimental effect on the blades of the turbine. This project focuses on minimizing the damage caused to the turbine blades by reducing the surface area of the blade exposed to the wind by the concept of furling. The furling action is actuated remotely over the internet by the concept of Internet of things (IOT).
