This paper presents the results from an experimental study of a Vertical Axis Wind turbine model with a guiding nozzle. The geometry of the nozzle is synthesized by an original methodology. The performance characteristics of the turbine are investigated when changing the number of the blades and their pitch angle. The obtained results allow us to generate generalized characteristics that can be used in the design of new turbines of this type. The results of the pilot studies showing higher efficiency than the classical Darrieus wind turbines (up to 50 % which is close to the Betz limit).
