Abstract: In the “Aerodynamic performance of wind turbine blade by using high lifting device” described that different velocity flow of air is passing through the wind turbine blade model and analyze through a numerical simulation that the pressure variation occur at that surface of the model. Before we built wind turbine blade in any strong wind blowing region the aerodynamic flow analysis is must for withstand the strong wind affects. In this chapter, basic nature of winds and types, wind affects through the wind turbine blade, formation of internal pressure and atmospheric boundary layer. This project could be done with the help of so many research papers were taken and followed in the literature review. The main tool we used in the project is CFD, so we gave some introduction about the CFD and how it could be used. Then we compared the results at the different models in different angles having with and without flap in 2D and 3D. We didn’t do any practical oriented models just we design the model in Gambit and analyze in the Fluent.
