Thea Vanelli, Aeroservoelastic stability of floating offshore reference wind turbine, Master project

    Activity: Examinations and supervisionSupervisor activities


    The IEA 15 MW is a reference wind turbine model that was created to develop and test the next generation of technologies for wind turbines of the future. This master's project, which is a collaboration between DTU and NREL, evaluates the stability of the IEA 15 MW when mounted on the UMaine semisubmersible platform. The platform model is implemented in HAWC2, and the turbine is controlled using both NREL's ROSCO controller and the DTU WEC controller. The performance of the closed-loop system is evaluated in terms of stability and loads. Depending on the results of the analysis, the controller(s) will be updated to improve the performance of the turbine.
