Coupled Dynamic Analysis of W2Power Semisubmersible Platform with two 6MW Wind Turbines

Lead Research Organisation: University of Edinburgh
Department Name: Sch of Engineering


The optimal design configuration of MUFOPs ensures the performance is analysed and texted under operation, parking and storms events. And delivers minimal or no wake interactions with adequate nacelles accelerations and platform motions, which has yet not investigated and the present study will involve. Therefore, the overall aim of this research is to address the challenges of modelling MUFOPs. In particular, develop numerical simulation tools for the dynamics of W2Power platform with 12MW (2x6MW) wind turbines coupled with a mooring system under both operational and extreme load conditions.
