Nowadays, using of renewable energy in most countries is increasing in order to keep available energy resources and prevent global warming. For this purpose and efficiently use of energy, a wind turbine has been designed in the vehicles for electricity generation

The aim of this paper is use of electrical energy that is generated by a car at high speeds. The analysis of the design in virtual wind tunnel will help a lot to desired accuracy. The Airfoil NACA 4412 is used in designing of turbine. Using the BEM method can calculate the total turbine blades. Airfoil pressure contour is analyzed by Foil Design software. Orders in BEM method using MATLAB programs implemented and assured results, also consistent with an empirical model is given. Using data analysis in software Fluent, the performance of turbine in different parts of the vehicle has been reviewed and the best point to install the turbine is analyzed according to Lift &Drag-forces.
