Bladed

Hello,
I am using GH-BLADED or modelling Phase IV of OC3 (5MW floating Offshore wind Turbine with Spar support_structure), my question is this, does anyone used GH-BLADED for simulating this model, because I implement the model as exactly as the file of Definition of the Floating System for Phase IV of OC3,J. Jonkman, but the analysis can not be run for more than a few seconds: *** ERROR: Mooring Lookup grid: Z displacement of -31.0081 is below lower grid limit of -31 for mooring MooringLine_2. Grid must be re-calculated with a lower min Z., and after correcting the lower grid limit again the same error happens for the new grid limit, does anyone have the same experience?

Dear Mina,

Perhaps someone experienced with Bladed will respond, but I suspect it would be better to ask this question to Bladed technical support from DNV.

Best regards,

Dear Jason Jonkman,

I sent an email to them first, but Unfortunately they do not help without renewing the support service.

Best Regards

Hello to every one,

I am trying to find the controller DISCON of the 5MW NREL project, does anyone have it or can share the link I can download, because the whole links I found are out of service or the file has been removed from them.

Best Regards
Mina

Dear Mina,

I’m not sure what link you are referring to, but the DISCON controllers for the NREL 5-MW baseline turbine models are included on the OpenFAST github site (drive.google.com/file/d/1dZXlrO … sp=sharing).

Best regards,

Dear Jason Jonkman,

Thanks for sharing the files and I need this file to use in GH_BLADED as a control system.

Best Regards
Mina

Dear Mina,

I am wondering if you ever managed to get this Bladed model working as I have a similar task to do. If so would you mind sharing the Bladed model with me please? It would save me a lot of time.

Kind regards,
Gerry
