Wind energy plays a vital role in the quest for renewable and sustainable energy as well as in reducing carbon emission. There are a lot of numerical techniques that are performed in order to design and simulate the wind turbines. However; such numerical techniques are focused on structure, blade design, blade fatigue, aerodynamics analyses, etc. In this work, new correlations are implemented for the design and simulation of different types of wind turbines (Horizontal and Vertical). The numerical correlations are performed by the use of Mat Lab/SimuLink tool box. Moreover; Artificial Neural Network (ANN) numerical technique is used to simulate and evaluate the designed modules. The implemented correlations may help the designer and\or investor in order to elect a specified wind turbine according to the demanded load and design the wind farm. The results reveal that the implemented correlations show a very good matching with the actual commercial data points of the wind turbines.
