In the present paper the accuracy of three numerical models for a scaled 10MW TLP wind turbine is assessed by comparison with test data. The three models present different levels of complexity, and therefore different degrees of accuracy can be expected. A set of load cases including irregular and focused waves is run in the three models, where only wave loads are considered. The simulation results are compared against the test data, and the numerical models are assessed based on their ability to reproduce the test results. Finally, the possibility of enhancing the simple model by using the advanced models is discussed. (C) 2016 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
