Content at SWE

  • Controller design for the new design
  • Uncoupled pre-design studies with reduced models and dedicated hydrodynamic boundary element codes
  • Coupled aero-hydro modelling of the platform and turbine to obtain dynamic forces on the floating platform and the vibrations and movements, to check if they are acceptable.
