Video: Floating Offshore Wind Turbine Platform Simulation

15 Dec 2021  by UGent Maritime Technology   

Time-domain simulation of a floating offshore wind turbine platform subjected to regular wave with a wave height of 10 meter and period of 10.5 second. The geometry is generated based on the OC4 DeepCWind platform as defined in the NREL technical report (Robertson et. al., 2014). Frequency domain coefficients are obtained from the simulation done in Capytaine (Ancellin & Dias, 2019). Platform's responses are modelled according to the Cummins equation (Cummins, 1962). Recursive approach (Sheng et. al., 2015) is used to model the memory effect.
