This paper describes an experimental and numerical investigation of the Iberdrola TLP wind turbine concept, TLPWINID, in realistic wind and wave conditions. The TLP was coupled to the NREL 5 MW reference turbine and was designed to operate in a water depth of 70 m. The test campaign included free oscillation tests, tests in regular and irregular waves and simulated wind conditions.
