Abstract: Research in aerodynamics has allowed the creation of different profiles for certain applications, reliably predicting the lift and drag coefficients by means of simulations or experimental methods. In the field of wind and hydraulic power generation, they have developed turbine rotors with improved performance and greater efficiency; several researchers have evaluated the influence of the use of aero profiles on the operation of hydrokinetic turbines through simulations and experimental tests. The main objective of this review is to show the reader the importance of the proper choice of an aero profile and its influence for the calculation during the design of rotor blades and the performance of hydrokinetic turbines.
