Abstract: The main aim of the paper is to design a windmill that operates without generator and ball bearings and to get maximum power output. The use of wind energy for energy generation is one of the oldest methods for harnessing renewable energy. Use of renewable energy is an essential ingredient of socio-economic development and economic growth. A vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) is introduced by magnetic levitation technology to optimize the performance. The system utilizes the nature of permanent magnet as a replacement for ball bearings to levitate the turbine component and thus minimize energy losses while rotating, which is the major problem that furthermore, the system can be suited by conventional wind turbine. The Maglev Wind Turbine is expected to bring wind power technology to the next level. Furthermore, the system can be suited in use for more rural and urban areas of low speed regions. The selection of magnet materials in the design of wind turbine system will be discussed. Power will then be generated with an axial flux generator, which incorporates the use of permanent magnets and a set of coils.
