  • For a family of specially tailored airfoils, the shapes of sections along the span of the blades are the most important elements for design of wind turbine blades. The airfoils with excellent performance can dramatically improve the capability of capturing wind power, reducing structural weight to save cost of manufacturing and transportation, and lowering inertial loads as well as loads due to gust. First, the development of the main wind turbine airfoil families around the world since 1990’s was reviewed, such as S series, DU series, RIS series, and FFA series. Second, the progress of NPU-WA series for megawatt-size wind turbine was summarized, including the design process and wind-tunnel experiments. Model tests were carried out in NF-3 wind-tunnel’s two dimensional test section, which was the largest low-speed two dimensional test section in Asia with the Reynolds number up to 5 millions. The further improvement of NPU-WA airfoils for lower roughness sensitivity was also reviewed. Last, the outlook on developing new NPU-WA series for multi-megawatt wind turbines in the near future was presented.
