Modal Turbine

FAST v8 + OrcaFlex 10.1

Submitted by Josean Galvan on August 27, 2015 - 11:55am
Main hypothesis
FAST is a wind turbine modelling program developed by the US National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). FASTlink is an experimental package that can be used to run coupled OrcaFlex + FAST simulations of floating wind turbine systems. In such coupled simulations FAST models the turbine aerodynamic loads and response, and the turbine control and power take-off system, but OrcaFlex models the platform hydrodynamic loads and mooring loads and response.

Main hypothesis
CENER has expanded the FAST code by including their own modules as OPASS, for the simulation of mooring line dynamics, DYSTool, for the unsteady aerodynamics modeling or HydroVisc for the inclusion of viscous effects on submerged elements.
