Aerodynamics of Rotor Blades

The aerodynamics principles of the two types of wind turbine are different. The HAWT and VAWT can have many different configurations of blades; therefore the aerodynamic concept may be different. In most cases, HAWT blades are aerodynamically based on the lift. The higher the lift forces, the higher power we get. On the other hand, the VAWT is mostly based on the drag forces.
