ESR4 - Multidisciplinary design analysis and optimisation framework for FOWT farms

Aims: This project aims at developing a multidisciplinary design analysis and optimisation (MDAO) framework for floating offshore wind farms. A MDAO consists of coupling tools that analyse specific subcomponents with the goal of simulating the performance and cost of the whole system. As such, MDAO is able to sacrifice the performance of some subcomponents for the benefit of others, which combined yield a better system performance or lower cost of energy.
