I want to simulate an start-up of a wind turbine with Fast 8, I have followed the process explained at the “fast user manual” and I got it, but the problem is that I start the pitch maneuver from feather to 0º(BlPitchF(i) =0) at a rate of 10 deg/sec and when the blades have pitch 0º I start the generator, at this point everything is O.k., but after this point the blades continues at picht 0º until the end of the run (due to the parameter BlPitchF(i)), I would like to get that from this point the pitch control start, so the blades could turn to extract the maximun power. I have tried setting PCMode = 5 and TPCOn= 100.1 (that is when the generator turns on), but I supose that the parameter BlPitchF(i) governs. is there any option to get this case?
P.S.: I have attached the elastodyn and servodyn files that I am using for thsi case with the extension “.txt”.
Thank you very much, best regards.
