Abstract
In this paper, a calibrated blade-element/momentum theory aerodynamic model of the Maritime Research Institute Netherlands (MARIN) stock wind turbine is developed and documented. The model is created using open-source software and calibrated to closely emulate experimental data obtained by the DeepCWind Consortium using a genetic algorithm optimization routine. The provided model will be useful for those interested in validating floating wind turbine numerical simulators that rely on experiments utilizing the MARIN stock wind turbine – for example, the International Energy Agency Wind Task 30’s Offshore Code Comparison Collaboration Continued, with Correlation project.
