Wind energy has an increased usage in last years. Its importance is because of the renewability and potential for
usage with a low budget. In this study we focus on the small wind turbines which can easily usable by public and
small operations with a small budget. 14 types of best small wind turbine airfoils (A18, BW3, Clark Y, E387,
FX77, NACA 2414, RG 15, S822, S823, S6062, S7012, SD6060, SD7032, SD7062) determined from past
studies and examined with Ansys Fluent fluid dynamics program. Their lift and drag coefficients determined for
50000 Reynolds number which is a function of Kayseri’s common wind speed and air density. As a result best
suited small wind turbine airfoil type is determined for Kayseri usage.
