Background

Most of the energy worldwide is obtained by nonrenewable resources, e.g. coal, oil, natural gas, nuclear power Fossil fuels are limited in supply and are harmful to the environment Wind is a renewable energy resource Onshore wind power has been the fastest growing energy source Increasing demand of offshore wind turbines Higher wind energy production stronger and more constant winds at sea than onshore No interference with life on land

Comparison of methods for computation of wave forcing and resulting motion of a slender offshore floating structure

Background

Several prototypes of floating substructures were developed The most economical constructions for generating electricity in the open sea are the Spar-buoy the Tension Leg Platform the Barge Design of floating wind turbines depends on the simulation of the system behavior

Goal of this thesis:

Presentation and comparison of different methods for calculating wave forces and resulting platform motions of a floating offshore wind turbine

Floating Offshore Wind Turbine Model - OC3 Hywind -

First full-scale floating platform for offshore wind turbines in deep water

The support platform is developed by the Norwegian oil corporation Statoil

Development within the so-called Hywind-project

In water depths from 120 m to 700 m

FOWT used in this thesis is the Hywind spar-buoy (OC3 Phase IV)

OC3 Hywind system is characterized by a deeply-drafted, slender spar-buoy with three mooring lines
