The performance of wind turbine was influenced by the environment. Among them, airfoil with leading edge ice has a great effect on the changes of aerodynamic performance. This study calculated the performance of an wind tubine airfoil at two iced shape model by CFD simulation using LES. LES in various models has been developed to simulate turbulent flows, especially to separated flows. In this investigation, 2D LES has been used to simulate flow past a wind turbine airfoil with leading edge ice which is a classical separated flow. The results show that flow structure is more complex with abundant whirlpools signifying violent turbulence when airfoil with ice and leads to poorer performance of wind turbine.
