Recently, renewable energy sources are crucial in the nation development as the world facing with the depletion of fossil fuel. Wind turbine blade was a device that generates power energy that converted the kinetic energy into electric energy. This research study was about strength and ability of wind turbine blade to withstand with the load applied by using Finite Element Analysis (FEA). To complete the study, the wind blade designed based on airfoil DU93-W-210 rotor blade parameters and the blade was simulated by using Solidworks® software. Variation average displacement such as 80.5 mm, 53.3 mm, 155.5 mm and 346.1 mm and pressure loads such as 150 kPa, 250 kPa, 350 kPa and 450 kPa by materials carbon fiber reinforced epoxy, steel, aluminium and glass fiber reinforced polyester. It is found that steel was the optimum material at displacement 53.3 mm. The optimum value was chosen based on the material that has been used in the wind blade and pressure loads applied. The stress and displacement analysis of carbon fiber reinforced epoxy showed a good result which indicates that it is the best material to be use in wind blade production.
