I am doing my master thesis now, on wind turbine noise. And I would like to use the code to cal that of a real wind turbine blade.
Does anyone have a 3D or 2D blade profile of wind turbine that is in form of coordinate values?

Thank you very much

Hello,

I can send you a 2D profile I used some time ago.

good luck

Thanks!!! But I would like to have .... blade section profile at different radius...maybe I didnt express myself clearly...
For a blade of real wind turbine, for different sections, the arifoil profiles are different...
But thanks anyway!

The profile information is available for NREL 5 MW turbine in the NREL reports. Another option is (assuming you know airfoil profiles), use x-foil to generate the CL CD data.

From my experience, the wind turbine blade actually consists of the same airfoil profile but at different cross sections it's scaled and twisted differently. Anyway, you can find the data for a NREL Phase VI rotor in pdfs on this site: http://wind.nrel.gov/amestest/

Hi everybody,

I need NREL 5MW profile datas in 2D.
I have its script file in 3D in "pff" format.

Could you please tell me how I can find its 2D script file in "pff" format ?
(I especially look for pff format to use it in icem .)
