Abstract

The wind turbines are the most efficient renewable energy source amongst. They convert the wind energy into electrical power. Wind tower is most important component of the wind farm. All the components of the wind tower mounted on the wind tower, so it should sustain all the loads without collapse. Most of the wind tower will fail due to its self-weight and operating speed of turbine rotor. Material density of the wind tower will perform major part of the failure. FEA analysis with working loads on wind tower of different materials will help to find proper material for wind tower. ANSYS 14.5 workbench is used for Modeling and solution.
