Abstract

This paper presents a design tool for optimizing wind
turbine blades. The work considers optimizing the blade of
wind turbines with respect to maximizing the energy yield of a
wind turbine. The design variables are the shape parameters
comprising the chord, the twist and the relative thickness of
the blade. Genetic algorithm was used to illustrate the
optimization technique; two wind turbines of different sizes
are subjected to analysis. The results obtained are in good
agreement with other published results.
