Pitch angle greatly affects the performance of VAWT. Aiming at the maximum value of CT, this study first obtains the theoretical optimal angles of attack, i.e., 17.7° and −18.4° in upwind and downwind zones. A 2.5D model is simulated using Fluent to determine the magnitude and direction of induced velocity, and an initial pitch angle adjustment law is obtained combining the proposed local TSR. Compared with a prototype wind turbine, CP is increased by 2.69% after applying the initial adjustment law. The fitting curve angle δ at the abrupt part of pitch angle is analyzed. The smaller the angle δ is, the more evident the performance improvement of VAWT becomes. CP is increased by 11.68% when the angle is δ=0°. On this basis, the adjustment law corresponding to δ=0° of 100°<azimuth angle θ<250°, where CT is low, is modified locally. At this time, CP is improved by 14.56%. Lastly, the change of the shaft’s synthetic force is analyzed. Compared with no various pitch, that with the adjustment law shows an increased average value of synthetic force and a decreased fluctuation. Moreover, the fluctuation of the shaft’s synthetic force under the action of the local adjustment law is the smallest.
