Use of kane’s method for multi-body dynamic modelling and control of spar-type floating offshore wind turbines
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2021

This paper demonstrates the use of Kane’s method to derive equations of motion for a spar-type floating offshore wind turbine taking into account the flexibility of the members. The recently emerged Kane’s method reduces the effort required to derive equations of motion for complex multi-body systems, making them simpler to model and more readily solved by computers. Further, the installation procedure of external vibration control devices on the wind turbine using Kane’s method is described, and the ease of using this method has been demonstrated. A tuned mass damper inerter (TMDI) is installed in the tower for illustration. The excellent vibration mitigation properties of the TMDI are also presented in this paper.
