The present paper explores experimentally the performance of two types of hinged plates which rotate about vertical axis when submitted to uniform current. A flat plate configuration and also a flapped plate (say, S shape) configuration have been investigated. The Vertical axis Auto rotation Current Turbine (VAACT) is one degree of freedom system (free to rotate in yaw direction). It is shown that a high efficiency for S shape type can be obtained of the order of 30 percent while flat blade type reaches approximately to 7 percent. Upper limit of tip speed ratio for flat blade type has been expanded approximately 0.9 whereas S shape approaches 1.3.
