Abstract: Wind turbine performance and efficiency used to face big challenges due to the highly random nature of the wind and its own small size. Wind turbine blade geometry has direct implications on the load bearing response and performance of the blade. New Wind Turbine Blade was modelled and detailed analysis was done using Ansys and Matlab. Static, Fatigue, Vibration, Computational Fluid Dynamics and Simulink Analysis was done to compare the performance of both wind turbine blades. Velocity of 83.33 m/sec have been incorporated for analysis. Various different Mathematical Equations and proper methodology was carried out to enhance the performance of Wind Turbine. Simulink Model was designed to optimize the performance of Wind Turbine. High Lift to Drag Parameter is optimized for proper Efficiency of Wind Turbine. Turbine blades are twisted so they can always present an angle that take advantages of the ideal lift-to-drag ratio. Optimization of Tower Design was carried out to enhance the performance of wind turbine. Better energy Production parameter is solved by the analysis and Simulation. Simulink Model was designed to optimize the performance of Wind Turbine. Simulink Output results shows the output of Electromagnetic Torque, Stator Current and Rotor Speed. Stress vs Strain Graph was plotted for both designed wind Turbine blades. Coefficient of drag graph was plotted to conclude the performance of Wind Turbine Blades. Turbulence behaviour is observed for both the wind turbine blades to validate the performance of Wind Turbine blades. Epoxy Material is considered for Wind Turbine blades.
