Steady-state response of 5MW

Hi all,

I was trying to understand how the steady-state response of the 5MW baseline wind turbine was plotted on Fig 9.1 on
“Definition of a 5-MW Reference Wind Turbine for Offshore System Development” technical report.
I have obtained the tabular listing of the values used in Figure 9-1 from NREL5MW Rotor Speed Data posted by Jason Jonkman.

Can I get any one of the wind speed input files, for 2m/s or 3m/s…25m/s, that were used to get those values?
or can you check the attached file, a turbsim (.hh) file that I edited to get a steady uniform wind speed of 2m/s? just want to make sure before continuing to edit and use similar (.hh) files for 3m/s,4ms,….25m/s and run FAST with Aerodyne to get the steady state response.

Thank you

Dear Ashenafi,

Your .hh file looks fine. Of course, you can make such a simple file by hand instead of by using TurbSim.

Best regards,
