In this paper high frequency induction heating is used for deicing the wind turbine blade. Copper coils are embedded in the blade. To one coil high frequency supply is given. Another coil is shorted. The heat is generated in the coil due to induction principle. The wind turbine blade is heated. Due to heat the ice accumulated on the blade is melted and is removed. There is a good control on the amount of heat production in the blade. Due to coil the strength of the blade is also increased. © 2017 IEEE.
