If I checked the IRS website and it says my refund has been sent on 2/26/18, how long will it take to apply to my prepaid debit card?

The IRS asks that you allow up to 5 days from the listed deposit date for your funds to appear. Also, many financial institutions do not process payments on weekends or holidays, which can affect when refunds reach taxpayers. If it has been past 5 days, contact your financial institution to check on it. You can see more information on this topic here https://www.irs.gov/individuals/refund-timing.
