Efficient design of wind turbine blades requires solving several equations involving the lift coefficient and angle of attack for the airfoil of interest. This software allows you to specify the number of blades, required TSR, approximate efficiency of blades, the blade radius and wind speed. A set of blades that meet your specifications will be designed. The software will provide the calculated power output, torque and rotational speed that need to match your generator.
