Abstract
The acknowledgement that mankind has a limited amount of resources in energy and a growing demand, joined with the awareness of the environmental impact of an only fuel-based electricity production have led to the expansion and democratization of renewable and green energies. The wind electricity production nowadays exists under various forms, differing one from another by their size, their mechanical structure and their power production.
This master thesis aims at explaining the different steps of the installation and performance testing of a small-scale vertical axis wind turbine developed by the Swedish company EXAMEC. It covers most of the aspects of such a wide project, ranging from electrical and mechanical considerations to

The acknowledgement that mankind has a limited amount of resources in energy and a growing demand, joined with the awareness of the environmental impact of an only fuel-based electricity production have led to the expansion and democratization of renewable and green energies. The wind electricity production nowadays exists under various forms, differing one from another by their size, their mechanical structure and their power production.
This master thesis aims at explaining the different steps of the installation and performance testing of a small-scale vertical axis wind turbine developed by the Swedish company EXAMEC. It covers most of the aspects of such a wide project, ranging from electrical and mechanical considerations to
organization and installation of the setup.
The work achieved was first to establish the specifications of this project: what are the requirements for implementing the performance test of a wind turbine? Which equipment is needed? The
following task consisted in finding appropriate suppliers for this equipment and installing the whole setup following the prerogatives determined earlier. In parallel to this, the automatic control sequence was written and tested under the DYMOLA software. The work achieved stops with a performance testing done without automatic control over the wind turbine. (Less)
