Abstract

Pollution free power production, quick installation and commissioning capability, less operation and maintenance cost and taking benefit of by means of free and renewable energies are all advantages of using wind turbines as an power generators. Along with these advantages, the main drawback of this source is the conditional nature of wind flow. Therefore, using reliable and efficient apparatus is necessary in order to get as much as energy from wind during the limited period of time that it flows strongly. Wind power is the fastest increasing renewable energy resource and wind power penetration in power systems increases at a significant rate. The high access of wind power into power systems in the present and near future will have several impacts on their planning and operation. A wind turbine transforms the kinetic energy in the wind to mechanical energy in a shaft and ultimately into electrical energy in a generator. Turbine blade is the mainly important part of any wind turbine. In this paper we consider single airfoil NACA 0018 and done CFD analysis at different blade angles 00,100,150 and 300 with constant wind velocity of 6 m/s. The analysis results show that blade angle 15ยบ gives best possible power.
