Much human energy needs are obtained from fossil fuels. This fossil energy is decreasing day by day. So that the utilization of natural energy such as solar energy, water energy and wind energy is being developed. Wind energy is energy that we can find, so it is very easy to use by using a turbine as the driving force. The vertical axis wind turbine is a type of wind turbine that is easier to apply in places where wind potential is not too large. This research was conducted by means of simulation using Qblade v0.963 software by comparing the influence generated from several numbers of wind turbine rotor blades. From the simulation process, it is known that the wind turbine rotor blades with 4 blades are the wind turbines capable of producing the greatest power, which is 75 Watts at a low TSR. So that in the manufacturing process it does not require large costs, but it still has to be built rigid and solidly.
