[OpenFAST] Recommended module time step (s)


Is anybody having an idea about the maximum and minimum value of the DT - Recommended module time step (s) , in the 5MW_Land_DLL_WTurb.fst ?

Best Regards


Dear @Hugo.Bontemps,

Unless you are changing mass, stiffness, or geometry parameters, the time steps specified in the r-test models can be considered sufficient for convergence and stability.

Guidance for selecting time steps for new models has been discussed in many forum topics, e.g., see: PTDM implementation - #16 by Jason.Jonkman.
