The program Phatas is developed at ECN wind energy for the design and analysis of horizontal axis wind turbines. Phatas is part of the wind turbine design package Focus which is developed at WMC. Recently Phatas is re-structured such that it can be called as a module by existing computer programs for the (hydro-) dynamics of a floating support. The use of Phatas for commercial application requires that the code is validated. The underlying document reports on a validation by comparison of the dynamic response calculated with the former Phatas release and the current Phatas releases. The development of the Wind Turbine module and the tests reported here were conducted within the project ‘Floating wind offshore structures’ that is carried out within the ‘Maritieme Innovatie Programma’ with reference MAR1000015. The ECN work is part of the ECN project 5.1098.
