Growing energy demand and public awareness on the environmental impact of non-renewable energy source has increase public interest in renewable energy especially wind energy. Nowadays countries like India, Germany, France, Spain, UK, USA and many more are widely using wind energy as an alternative source of power generation [I]. However, in Malaysia, wind energy is not very popular because the wind condition is variable due to the seasonal variation. The maximum wind speed in Malaysia is around 4-5 m/s annually [2]. With the right design of wind turbine, this wind speed is enough to generate power for household in order to reduce the dependency on the conventional power generation. This report is about the design and analysis of transmission system in small wind turbine. The first step is to design the transmission system for small wind turbine. With the right gear ratio, it can increase from low speed shaft into high speed shaft so that it is sufficient for generator to generate electricity. The designed transmission system is then translated into 3D drawing using CATIA V5Rl8 software to create a model for simulation later. ANSYS Workbench simulation software is used to simulate the static structural analysis of the transmission system to determine the equivalent (von-mises) stress, maximum shear stress, total deformation and safety factor. The results gained from the analysis are gathered and analyze to conclude the condition of the transmission system designed. Lastly, some recommendations are included for further study in the future.
