Accurate computer modelling is critical in achieving cost effective floating offshore wind turbine designs. In floating wind turbine simulation codes, mooring line models often employ a quasi-static approximation that neglects mooring line inertia and hydrodynamics. The loss of accuracy from using this approach has not been thoroughly quantified. To test whether this widely-used simplified mooring line modelling approach is adequate, the open-source floating wind turbine simulator FAST was… CONTINUE READING
