Hello, I understand you want to find how the shape of the blade affects the power generated by the wind turbine. Is that correct? I noticed that in one of the pictures you change where the thickest part of the blade is. The whole blade geometry is actually mathematically calculated. It turns out there is a certain angle and size of a selected airfoil at each point of the radius of the blade for a certain wind speed and rotation of the blade where the wind turbine will be the most effective. You should read a little bit of Blade element theory. I hope this helps to point you in the right direction. :)


Thanks for the input.
