Wind Turbine Design of Turbine Blade

As renewable energy sources become increasingly popular, wind power provides a safe and dependable alternative to fossil fuels. Wind turbines are currently constructed in a variety of sizes; some are several hundred feet tall and weigh thousands of pounds while others are small enough to mount on top of a residential home. The aim of this study is to design and build a small wind turbine that utilized a microcontroller board to automatically adjust the blade angle of attack and also rotate the turbine toward the windward direction. The turbine will display weather information, such as the current wind speed and direction, on an LCD module.
