Abstract

This report explains about the project entitled Resin Infusion Strategies for Wind Turbine Blade. The proposed design for this project is wind turbine blade which will be infused later. The goal of this project is to investigate and determine the effective infusion strategy for the wind turbine blade in order to achieve uniform resin distribution in shortest time throughout the wind turbine blade design. One of the most important parameter in Resin Infusion process is the strategy of filling. The location of the resin start to penetrate and the vacuum will be applied is much depends on the design to infused. There are several strategies, namely point feeding, edge feeding, line feeding and multiple line feeding. As the design getting more and more complex, the complete wetting of the fiber by resin will become increasingly difficult and the resin flow front progression will become slower. The proper infusion strategy and good technique is needed to achieve a better fiber-to-resin ratio for the final product and good filling time taken for infusion process to complete. Trial and error experiments need to be conducted several times to learn the technique and familiarize with the resin infusion process and thus can decrease unsuccessful experiments later on. After conducted two blade resin infusion experiments, it can be conclude that the shortest distance between the resin line inlet and vacuum line outlet will lead to a shorter time filling.
