In this paper the project of a small wind turbine for urban application has been described. The project of a horizontal small wind turbine presented in this paper was made for the purposes of taking part in ISWTC, but the main target was to develop a turbine for urbanized regions starting in conditions of low wind speed. In this paper a description of aerodynamic and mechanical design are presented; also, control and safety systems are discussed. This turbine has the potential to become a cheap energy generator for household use and can be a competitor of vertical small wind turbines.
