Reliability-based Optimization of Floating Wind Turbine Support Structures
Summary: Development of offshore and floating components within MoWiT, as well as application of the MoWiT-Dymola-Python framework for performing automated DLC simulations, as well as various optimization tasks. These include design optimization based on global limit states, as well as more future-oriented and sophisticated optimization tasks for advanced floating structures or including scaling for larger turbines. Finally, an approach is developed and applied to realize reliability assessments within the design optimization of floating wind turbine systems.
