I have read through the FAQ’s and the ‘Instructions for Compiling FAST using IVF for Windows®’ document.
I have written fortran code before at university for a stand alone programs that simulated a ballistic rocket and another for simulating the flow of epoxy into a mold however I am not a computer literate person. I understand the physics and the engineering, but not the way that the programs and codes interact executing what I want done.
My question is very basic…I think.
I need to modify the PitchCntrl_ACH.f90 routine for my wind turbine model. I have read and understood the existing .f90 code as it is using a text editor. I now need to modify this code to model how my turbine works. This I can do in the fortran code in the text editor (I think) as I have experience in this.
What is the process for ensuring that the code I write in text editor for the .f90 file is understood my FAST?
Do I need to re-compile FAST? Do I re-compile PitchCntrl_ACH.f90?
Any advice will be appreciated.
