The paper deals with the Design, fabrication and experimental analysis of Archimedes spiral wind turbine which gyrates at a low wind speed and is highly adaptive for household electricity necessities. Archimedes wind turbine (AWT) is a new type of Horizontal axis wind turbine comprising three circular blades which are wrapped around each other and then expanded about the shaft. This special design ensures that more air is harvested by the turbine utilizing the tangential, axial and radial forces so that more power is extracted from wind. The design of the model is done in Creo parametric and fabrication is done through 3D printing of the IGES part file using the ABS(Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene) material.CFD simulations in Ansys Fluent. The ultimate objective of this work is to compare the power obtained from experimental and analytical analysis of Archimedes turbine. The power produced by the turbine at lower and higher wind speeds is good and the power production increases as the wind speed increases, following a linearly increasing trend and in order to prove the results are correct and satisfactory, validation is done with the help of experimental results.
