Abstract
With increasing emphasis on renewable sources of energy, wind energy has turned into a major form of energy. Wind turbines are used worldwide to harness the wind energy. Conventional wind turbines have limitations due to their rigid structures. Morphing can be used as a technique to improve the performance of the wind turbine. The paper involves the aerodynamic analysis of the morphing wind turbine blade. Morphing enables the turbine blades to adapt with varying wind velocity. Here we are considering only the effects of morphed trailing edge of the wind turbine blade. The aerodynamic efficiency and the power output vary for various morphing angles of the turbine blade.
