I am trying to perform a buffeting analysis of a wind turbine blade. How can I use my wind speed data to calculate the pressure exerted by the wind on the blade surface or lift and drag force generated due to the different wind speed data samples (e.g., 3, 5, or 20 m/s)? I want to use blade element momentum theory for calculation (CDF analysis is out of the scope). Can we directly use wind speed data to calculate the effect on the blade surface? Any suggestion you can give would be constructive. Thank you

Yes, you can. However, given you won't know the pressure on the blades with any confidence it's not necessarily going to be a good boundary condition so it's possibly not going to be a very useful simulation.

How can I use wind speed data (Time vs. wind speed) as load in my wind turbine blade for transient structural analysis?

I assume there's a boundary condition option in Mechanical - you'd be best asking in https://forum.ansys.com/forums/forum/discuss-simulation/structures/
