A small-scale of wind turbine model has been designed and fabricated by using Fused Deposition Modeling, FDM Nylon material to investigate its performance. The wind attack angle effect on the generated electricity at Archimedes spiral wind turbine, ASWT, and propeller wind turbine was investigated experimentally. Experimental tests were carried out in the open stream field at different wind attack angles and speeds vary from 0° to 30° and from 6.0 to 10 m/s, respectively. The effects of the upcoming flow on the mechanical power extracted by the rotors and electrical power generation were estimated. Both rotors demonstrated growing in the output power, power coefficient, Cp, and electricity generation when the velocity of the upcoming flow increases from 6.0 to 10 m/s. The present study shows the results of output power and Cp of the spiral turbine is greater than the propeller turbine for all upcoming flow velocities. It was found that ASWT more efficient than the propeller wind turbine for generating electricity.
