Currently, the development of renewable energy has become a trend with the increasing demand for energy. Wind energy, as a renewable source of energy, is also getting more attention. Increasing effort is devoted to developing floating offshore wind turbines in deep water. In this paper, a V-shaped semisubmersible floating wind turbine was adopted to investigate the dynamic response of the system. Numerical simulations are conducted using aero-hydro coupled analysis in a time domain. The performance of the V-shaped semisubmersible floating wind turbine with respect to global platform motion, mooring line tensions and tower base moment is evaluated in this study. It turns out that the V-shaped semisubmersible offshore wind turbine is a promising concept that provides a good practice for the application of wind energy in deep water in the future.
