In order to reduce the cost of wind turbines and boost their operation reliability, the aerodynamic load of wind turbine blade is analyzed by taking the key parameters of wind turbine blade airfoil and operation as design variables. According to the actual wind force and wind shear theory, the Planck loss factor is introduced based on the existing algorithm. The axial induction factor and tangential induction factor were modified, and the optimization algorithm of aerodynamic load of wind turbine blade was deduced. The feasibility of the algorithm is verified by simulation.

Key words: wind turbine, blade, load, optimization algorithm, simulation
