Abstract

The results of an investigation into the production of wind turbine blades manufactured using polymer composites reinforced by hybrid (carbon, basalt, glass) fibers and strengthened by various nanopowders (oxides, carbides, borides) are presented. The hybrid fiber-reinforced composites (HFRC) were manufactured with prepreg technology by molding pre-saturated epoxy-strengthened matrix-reinforced fabric. Performance of the manufactured composites was estimated with values of the coefficient of operating condition (COC) at a moderate and elevated temperature.
