Abstract
Floating offshore wind turbines (FOWT) have been extensively proven in model tests and are reaching currently a pre-commercial phase where large scale demonstrators are being built offshore. This transition increases the need for models able to assess the performance at suitable offshore locations. A simplified model is proposed that computes the dynamic response of FOWT to different met-ocean conditions and calculates the energy production considering the behavior of the structure as well as th...
