im a Beginner to Simulink and FAST V8

hi all,

im a beginner to fast v8, I want to use FAST V8 on Simulink

where can i get the NREL 5MW floating turbine model , the old link does not work well

Thank you so much!

Dear Rui,

As I announced here:, the NWTC Information Portal crashed before the replacement site is available. I’ve now shared the old FAST v8 archive, which contains the Simulink-FAST v8 interface and NREL 5-MW floating wind turbine models, here: … sp=sharing.

Best regards,

Dear Jason,

thanks for your help! Now i have downloaded the file .
And i download a pdf from the link which topic is Simulation for Wind Turbine Generators—With FAST and MATLAB-Simulink Modules. Can i use this file to learn the operation of FAST on Simulink? Thank you so much!

All the best!

Dear Rui.Hao,

The basic operation of the FAST v8 interface to Simulink is discussed in the old FAST v7 User’s Guide ( … sp=sharing).

I’m only vaguely familiar with the report you reference, but I believe it provides advanced case studies for application of the FAST-Simulink interface.

Best regards,

Sorry for answering you late.
Thank you for your help! I have followed the document to learn step by step.In the next study,can i continue to ask you for advice? :bulb: :bulb:

best wishes!

Dear Jason
Sorry to trouble you again .
I am using Matlab 2018a. I have read the FAST v8 Interface to Simulink from README_FAST8 pdf.
I run Test01.fst in FAST V8 ,but is has an error as below.

Error reported by S-function ‘FAST_SFunc’ in ‘OpenLoop/FAST Nonlinear Wind Turbine/S-Function’:
FAST_InitializeAll:SrvD_Init:ValidatePrimaryData:Yaw angle and rate are not commanded from Simulink model.
ValidatePrimaryData:Pitch angles are not commanded from Simulink model.
ValidatePrimaryData:Generator torque and power are not commanded from Simulink model.
ValidatePrimaryData:HSS brake is not commanded from Simulink model.
SrvD_Init:BladedInterface_Init:The dynamic library …\CertTest\5MW_Baseline/ServoData/DISCON_win32.dll could not be loaded. Check that the file exists in the specified location and that it is compiled for 64-bit applications.

Can you help me to solve it ?
Thank you very much!
Best regards.
