wind turbine blade
 
I'm designing a wind turbine blade and I want to calculate the power extracted. The model will be imported from Pro/Engineer into Gambit and meshed and analysed in Fluent. But I don't know how to obtain the power generated by the rotor in a constant wind speed. The model is in 3D. Any help is very much appreciated.

If analysing the rotor in full 3D model is difficult, can I analyse one of the blades and get its torque? How to do it in 3D blade?

Thanks

Hi Lim,
i had also started working on same stuff to full fill my my course requirement, i had selected a 31 m blade , can u give me few details on analysis as i am little struck on modeling it in ansys , any help would be highly appreciated..
