Abstract: This paper introduces the wind power generator using horizontal axis wind turbine with convergent nozzle. This paper brings a detailed theoretical and practical study of air concentrating nozzle and the optimum nozzle dimensions have been analyzed in detail. Commercial CFD software which is used for the nozzle with different tapering angle has also been analyzed. The length of the nozzle was varied to study its effect on the increase of wind speed for constant inlet and outlet nozzle areas placed at different distances from the wind tunnel. The results of the new wind turbine performance characteristics using concentrating nozzles have also been outlined. We have practically deliberated and constructed a wind power generator, established on this nozzle duct furnished with the optimal nozzle.
