In this study, we present a design alternative to prevent the icing of a wind turbine blade in the cold climate wind zones. The main objective is to create a thin film around the wing profile that can protect the surface from ice formation. In order to form this insulating layer, the leading edge, which is the region where the icing started first, the circular openings that could provide hot air to the outside of the wing, were added to geometries. By means of these openings, it has been tried to provide a solution that will prevent ice on the surface without the need to heat the entire wing. At the same time, the effect of these openings on the wing, the distance between the openings and the positions and diameters of the wings on the lifting performance of the wing were investigated. Throughout the study, the design parameters were all proportional to the chord length of the wing. In the model stage, instead of the entire wing, only one section of the wing was modeled using symmetry boundary conditions in order to use the existing limited computing power more efficiently. In this way, both the number of network elements and the calculation time can be modeled in such a way that the distance between the openings is equal to the width of the section. The results show that the lifting force, as can be expected, is small. As the width, i.e. the distance between the openings increased, the lifting force became more stable, while the film layer temperature decreased.
