Wind represents the kinetic energy of the atmosphere. Wind energy is currently supplying as much as 1% of the world electricity used, and could supply as much as 20% of global electricity in power and can be created through the use of wind turbines. Wind turbine blade is the most promising technology for the production of energy by using wind energy. Good design of wind turbine blade depends on performance of increasing to generate electricity which related with drag coefficient SCd), lift coefficient (CL) and turbulence kinetic energy. However, the efficiency of wind turbine blade could be predicted by simulation due to flow streamline on wind turbine blade. This paper discuss the result obtain from simulation in CFD using CFX on NACA 4412 and NACA 4415.
