5MW Land

Last Updated on: 2024-04-10

This benchmark focuses on the 5MW_Land_BD_DLL_WTurb simulation, witch is a land based NREL 5-MW turbine simulation using BeamDyn as the structural module. It simulates 20 seconds with a time step size of 0.001.

Software versions

The software versions used in this benchmark were the following:

Component Version
OpenMP 201511
OpenFAST v3.5.2
gcc, g++, gfortran 11.4.0 (Ubuntu 11.4.0-1ubuntu1~22.04)
kernel 6.6.12-linuxkit

Execution times comparison

Faster execution times are better

Cost vs Time

The following plot shows how the execution times and costs vary with the number of cores for each machine family. For this specific simulation it is better to have a fast cpu instead of many cores, with c3-standard-4 being the most cost-effective.
