The aim of this study was a comparative analysis of the suitability of the use of airfoil for wind power. Based on numerical analyses and analytical methods, information on the power factor was obtained. The analyses were carried out for the wind turbine blades and rotors of a vertical axis wind turbine. The tests were performed for the constructed profile and compared with the profile DU 06-W-200 used in the construction of a wind turbine rotors. A vertical axis wind turbine model equipped with designed blade profiles was prepared. The main predicted purpose of the device is to supply electricity to the household. The blade profile models were prepared and then a numerical analysis was performed using the CFD application. The obtained results for given wind speeds and types of profiles were compared with each other. The conducted research allowed to determine the sense of applying the unaudited profile based on the determined value of wind turbine power coefficient. Studies have shown that the accurate preparation of the optimal rotor blade with respect to flow of air stream strongly influences the characteristics of the wind turbine.
