A wind turbine is a rotating machine which converts the kinetic energy of wind into mechanical energy. If the mechanical energy is used directly by machinery, such as a pump or grinding stones, the machine is usually called a windmill. If the mechanical energy is instead converted to electricity, the machine is called a wind generator, or more commonly called a wind turbine. This study presents in designing and fabrication of the development of a simple wind turbine. The project is to analyze the characteristic of wind turbine design and producing a horizontal axis wind turbine that can operate properly. Besides that, the wind turbine should generate electricity as it function. For this process, after the design is fmish fabricated, an experiment was undergone to determine the output power which is the electricity and also to check whether the prototype operates properly. Actually the experiment was undergone using actual wind velocity that can be gain around us but because the wind velocity is too slow and not windy, the laboratory fan was act as the alternative method to undergo the experiment. The wind velocities used were 65, 70 and 75 m/s. The wind turbine was set with the angle of 30° for its blade because this is the most efficient angle. The 75 mls showed the maximum result where the voltage is 0.319 V, the current is 2.94 x 10-3 A and the power is 937.86 x 10- 6 watt. So to make sure that all the objectives for the Projek Sarjana Muda is achieved, the experiment and procedure must be done properly and also by referring the scope of the project.
