Abstract

This paper focuses on the design and manufacture of a wind turbine blade which is utilized to generate the power of 375 Watts. The objective of this work is to develop a domestic wind turbine which works at low wind speeds and which can be made available to the common man at a very low price. Teak wood, which is easily available, is utilized to fabricate the blades and hub of the wind turbine. In the design process, basic aerofoil section is considered and various forces like axial, lift and drag acting on the blades is calculated theoretically and the design is optimized to get the optimum power output.

Keywords: Wind Turbine, Lift, Drag, hub, blade, fabrication
