Abstract

Tank testing in a wind and wave environment is a key part of the design process for the development of an offshore floating wind turbine. The current paper describes an extensive experiment campaign carried out at the Kelvin Hydrodynamics Laboratory at the University of Strathclyde to determine the hydrodynamic performance of the Iberdrola TLPWIND offshore floating wind turbine with the NREL 5MW reference turbine over a range of environmental conditions. Tests were carried out for 70m water depth and the deployment area selected as off Aberdeen, North Sea. The campaign included free oscillation tests, tests in regular waves and irregular waves, and additionally examined failure and accidental load cases.
