Recently, the demand for the utilization of clean renewable energy sources shows an increasing interest as a result of the fluctuation in oil prices and the increased awareness of human-induced climate change. With the current technology, wind energy has shown to be one of the most promising sources of renewable energy and become competitive towards the conventional sources of energy such as coal and petroleum. Wind turbine blades play an important role in the production of wind power. This paper explores the analysis of wind turbine blade as subjected to static and dynamic loading. The main objective of this study is to recommend for improvement of wind turbine blade shape to ensure safuty in the interest location which is Malaysia. Several aspects and criteria are discussed in this paper to achieve the desired objectives. Methodology starts with the background study on the subject, related problem and possible designs where they are the starting points before moving to the next important step which is fmite element modeling. At the same time, mathematical modeling is also done to prove the finite element modeling. Last but not least, comparison between the modeling results with the current standards of wind turbine blade design is done to ensure the reliability of the design. The paper would be concluded with the achievement of the project.
