Software-in-the-loop provides valuable alternative to traditional offshore wind model testing

Since 2003, MARIN has built up an extensive track record in testing floating wind turbines. To date, the main method for model testing has been based on a dedicated wind setup and on MARIN’s stock turbine that was developed at an early stage of these types of model tests. Although we believe that tests with the stock turbine are valuable, a new method has been adopted in which a hybrid solution between simulations and physical model tests has been developed, giving more flexibility in selecting the model scale and shorter preparation time.
