In this paper, a calibrated blade-element/momentum theory aerodynamic model of the Maritime Research Institute Netherlands (MARIN) stock wind turbine is developed and documented. The model is created using open-source software and calibrated to closely emulate experimental data obtained by the DeepCwind Consortium using a genetic algorithm optimization routine. The provided model will be useful for those interested in validating floating wind turbine numerical simulators that rely on experiments utilizing the MARIN stock wind turbine—for example, the International Energy Agency Wind Task 30's Offshore Code Comparison Collaboration Continued, with Correlation project.
