      We have designed, fabricated and studied the vertical axis wind turbine and its characterization. The system has been locally designed to pump water. It is considered as a one of the best options for low speed wind. The turbine has eight blades , each blade is 1.8m in length,  and the area dimension of the turbine 3.6 m2 . were investigated  the  best characterization of the system at low wind speed are Power turbine  depends on the wind speed. It was 280 Watt at 6m/s and 160 watt at 5m/s  , and  the power after the turbine decreasing to factor  1/3. The system torque was 20 N.m , Power coefficient cap  0.29 , Tip speed ratio 0.46. It is suitable to be used in Iraq region , and low cost for get the water, It is important to reduce desertification and increase investment.
