This article presents the Real-Time Hybrid Model (ReaTHM®) tests that were performed on a 10-MW semi-submersible floating wind turbine in the Ocean Basin at SINTEF Ocean in March 2018. The ReaTHM test method was used for the model tests to circumvent the limitations encountered when performing ...

Model testing of offshore structures in ocean basins has been accepted as a necessary step for the validation and calibration of numerical models, as well as for final design checks in extreme environments. While offshore wind power makes no exception, model testing has not shown its full potential ...

Offshore wind power research is a rapidly growing field, because of the present climate crisis and increasing focus on renewable energy. Model testing plays an important role in the risk and cost analysis associated with offshore wind turbines (OWTs). The real-time hybrid model testing concept (ReaT...

Real-Time Hybrid Model (ReaTHM) tests of a braceless semi-submersible wind turbine were carried out at MARINTEK’s Ocean Basin in 2015. The tests sought to evaluate the performance of the floating wind turbine (FWT) structure in environmental conditions representative of the Northern North Sea. In or...

This article presents a method for performing Real-Time Hybrid Model testing (ReaTHM testing) of a floating wind turbine (FWT). The advantage of this method compared to the physical modelling of the wind in an ocean basin, is that it solves the Froude-Reynolds scaling conflict, which is a key issue ...
