The potential of wind energy in this power starved county is the brightest one among all others, owing to its free availability even at various remote places. In this paper, a matlab model is developed to study the aerodynamic factors that affect the wind turbine power generation and this simulink model is valid for wide range of wind turbines. It is tested for vestas Type V27, V39 and V52 wind turbines. The study observes that the operational parameters has a direct effect on the generated power which will lead the designer to focus on priority factor that should be considered for optimizing the new generation wind turbines.
