How does the blade direction affect the energy output on a wind turbine?Energy and Environmental Engineering

"1.In this experiment, I will determine how the angle on a wind turbine blade affects the energy output of the wind turbine. 2. This project interested me because when traveling I always pass by wind mills and wonder more about the functions of them. 3. The results of this experiment showed that after averaging my 7 trials per angle, that the blade at 10 degrees had the best performance with an avg. 0.46. Therefore, 10 degrees is the best angle to tilt your wind turbine at. 4. I think this project will help people realize how much power wind turbines are actually producing."
