That makes sense. But how do you find the blade velocity?

On the test, did they provide the tip-speed ratio? You could use that to find the blade velocity.

They say initial wind velocity is 30 m/s, and then you assume wind velocity = blade velocity which is not true at all but gets you the right answer

Does anyone know how many terms we need to know for Wind Power this year?

There is no set list of terms you need to know for this event. I would worry more about learning the concepts that are in the rules.

As many as you can find that relate to the event.

I disagree. Every test almost always has something to do with terms...And half of the time you don't know what they're asking about in a question and need to flip to a 'glossary'. I find that having a list of definitions of different wind power terms is extremely helpful for this event.

I have a list of all of the different forms of energy, some other ones that I can't think of right now, etc.

Your glossary will need to go WAY beyond just the different forms of energy...
