Abstract

Floating offshore wind turbine (FOWT) industry has been under rapid development in the past few years. Among various components in a FOWT system, the floating platform supporting the wind turbine and its tower plays a vital role on the performance of FOWT and system stability. In this paper, we studied two FOWTs which are supported by two commonly used platforms, i.e. a semi-submersible and a spar platform, under a combined wind-wave environmental condition. Using a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) method, we intended to examine the influences of platforms on the performance of the floating system.
