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.
