Dear Jason;
something like Adams that coupled with fast and has ability to add everything that I want.
My actuator is a one kind of TMD. that is not exist in fast and openfast. the best soft is adams for me but I can so many problem with it. for example I can made adams model with msc adams 2008r3 but it cant work with simulink. in earlier version of adams , fast cant generate adams model.
best regards

Dear Vahid,

Well, I guess I have three choices:
(1) Change the FAST/OpenFAST source code as needed to consider your TMD-type actuator.
(2) Figure out how to get your model to work in MSC.ADAMS.
(3) Use a software entirely different than FAST/OpenFAST or MSC.ADAMS.

Best of luck!

The error you are reporting sounds identical to the one discussed here: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=318&p=1057.

But we never completed the restructure to A2AD mentioned on that forum post. Downgrading to MSC.ADAMS 2008R1 may be the easiest solution.

Best regards,

Inhttps://nwtc.nrel.gov/ADAMS2AD update of 2013 is exist. but you said the best version is 2008r1.I can't understand why?

Dear Vahid,

ADAMS2AD v13.01 was released in February of 2013, but this version of the interface still used MSC.ADAMS 2008R1.

Dear Jason;
I think linking adams and simulink waste my time so I think I have to change my senario. I want to add my actuator in Fast could you please say how to do it?

Dear Vahid,

I don't think I can offer much advice without knowing more about your (one of a kind) TMD. I would guess it would be easiest to start with the existing TMD submodel of ServoDyn and modify it as necessary for your technology.
