    I want to design a wind toubine ,I know the wnd vel,I need certain amount of power ..How to design it and how to calculate at which rpm will it rotate to deliver my required power?

    There are two parts to your solution:

    1. Power = Torque x rpm x % Efficiency of the generator

    2. Is the design of your blades to supply the amount of torque at your design rpm and wind velocity. For that, do web inquiry on "propeller design". (But don't expect to find a quick and easy solution for that calculation)
