In the last decades, the public opinion has paid great attention to environmental pollution and global warming. Energy sector has a strong impact on environment. Thus, the use of renewable energies is becoming mandatory. The present paper deals with a study of ducted Savonius turbine performance as a function of geometric and operating parameters. Ducted turbines could be used as power take-off in multiple applications. In this paper, two main applications were studied. The first application is related to the possibility to install the turbine inside building with the purpose of architectonic integration of the system. The second one is related to wave energy harvesting. In both cases the same type of turbine was used to convert input energy (wind or wave energy) into electricity. Turbine performance were studied as a function of turbine overlap ratio, as well as air flux oscillating frequencies. On the basis of the obtained results, turbine performance increase in ducted configuration and a change in best overlap ratio was registered.
