dc.description.abstract This paper examines the impact on experimental uncertainty of introducing aerodynamic and rotor gyroscopic loading on a model multirotor floating wind energy platform during physical testing. In addition, a methodology and a metric are presented for the assessment of the uncertainty across the full time series for the response of a floating wind energy platform during wave basin testing. It is shown that there is a significant cost incurred in terms of experimental uncertainty through the addition of rotor thrust in the laboratory environment for the considered platform. A slight reduction in experimental uncertainty is observed through the introduction of gyroscopic rotor loading for most platform responses. en
