INCREASING WIND TURBINE EFFICIENCY USING SOFTWARE PACKAGES
Wind energy is a clean source of energy. Wind turbine efficiency is affected by wind speed, Reynolds number, density, humidity, and air temperature, as well as other factors. The conversion of wind kinetic energy into the rotational movement of the wind turbine is performed thanks to the aerodynamic profile of the blade. Due to the large number of factors that affect the efficiency of work, complex mathematical models and software packages, specialized for this purpose, are used to shape the profile of the wind turbine blade. This paper presents the application of software packages for the design of the blade profile depending on the geographical location and meteorological conditions prevailing in the area, to achieve greater efficiency, that is, the production of a larger amount of electricity.
