The Wind turbine is a tool used in Wind Energy Conversion System (WECS). The wind turbine produces electricity by converting wind energy into kinetic energy and spinning to produce electricity. Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT) is designed to produce electricity from winds at low speeds. Vertical wind turbines have 2 types, they are wind turbine Savonius and Darrieus. This research is to know the effect of addition wind booster to Savonius vertical wind turbine with the variation 2 blades and 3 blades. Calculation the power generated by wind turbine using energy analysis method using the concept of the first law of thermodynamics. The result obtained is the highest value of blade power in Savonius wind turbine without wind booster (16.5 ± 1.9) W at wind speed 7 m/s with a tip speed ratio of 1.00 ± 0.01. While wind turbine Savonius with wind booster has the highest power (26.3 ± 1.6) W when the wind speed of 7 m/s with a tip speed ratio of 1.26 ± 0.01. The average value of vertical wind turbine power increases Savonius after wind booster use of 56%.
Key words: Savonius / Wind Booster / Power / Tip Speed Ratio
