The Savonius wind turbine is normally installed in vertical axis configuration and operates in open atmosphere. The wind energy from atmosphere is converted into a mechanical energy rotating of the rotor to produced either electricity or torque. In this study the turbine is to be installed horizontally on top of a chimney. Three different configurations are proposed. The first proposed configuration will exposed the entire rotor to the wind stream. In the second configuration the wind stream will directed to a concave vane by manipulating the angle of flow direction. In the last proposed configuration a guide plate is inserted at one side of the rotor as a casing. An analysis has been conducted on these three different configurations with experimental procedure to verify the result obtained with numerical analysis method in previous work.
