Offshore wind turbines can capture the high-quality offshore wind resource but suffer from increased loading from waves and ice. Reducing these loads through structural control techniques has the potential to be an economically viable solution. Both fixed-bottom and floating substructures are considered in this paper, which will investigate a fixed-bottom monopile as well as a barge, spar buoy, and tension-leg platform for the floating platforms. A set of optimum passive tuned mass dampers are… CONTINUE READING
