Large scale utilization of electricity started at the end of 19th century with the construction first power plant and there phase current was introduced. Power plant technology evolved rapidly and electricity use has increased rapidly since then. Outbreak of energy crisis in 1970s and threat of the global warming has forced the people to search clean energy resources. Among the renewable energy sources, wind energy has become the most popular case. Development of the necessary technology for wind turbines reached a commercial competence In the 1990s. Turning to wind energy in Turkey began after 2006 and has shown a rapid increase until 2015. When considering the country's wind potential it tends to stay in rapid growth. In this study, 2 kW micro-turbines is designed, manufactured and tested by using local facility. The aim of this study is to design a micro-turbine for use in low wind speed area, create industrial infrastructure related to the production of micro-turbine, and develop different production technologies for local industry.
