Wind energy is the clean energy source that has had the highest installation growth worldwide. This energy uses the kinetic energy in the airflow currents to transform it into electrical energy through wind turbines. In this chapter, a rotor of a 2 MW of power wind turbine installed in Mexico is analyzed considering the wind velocity data and temperatures at each season of the year on the zone for the analysis in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD); subsequently, a Fluid–Structure Interaction (FSI) analysis was carried out to know the stress of the blades. The results show a relationship between temperature, air density, and power.
