The performance of a composite wind turbine blade varies with its ply parameters. According to the design principle of the response surface method, different ply schemes are built. Taking the optimal overall properties of the blade as goals, with ply parameters as independent variables and the static strength and stiffness of the blade as response variables, experiments are designed using the Taguchi method in Minitab, and the static strength and stiffness of the blade are simulated. The mapping relationship between ply parameters and the Tsai-Wu failure factor is determined, the maximum displacement is established through multivariate linear regression analysis, and the significant test of the mathematical model and its coefficients is performed. The influence of ply parameters on blade structure performance is analyzed. The correctness and effectiveness of the method are verified.
