In this paper, a design method based on blade element momentum (BEM) theory is explained for horizontal-axis wind turbine (HAWT) blades. The method is used to optimize the chord and twist distributions of the blades. Applying this method a 100kW HAWT rotor is designed. Also a computer program is written to estimate the aerodynamic performance of the existing HAWT blades and used for the performance analysis of the designed 100kW HAWT rotor.
