Dear Sepideh,

While these two outputs have been eliminated from FAST v8, it is not difficult to calculate them from the available outputs. For example, the horizontal wind direction can be derived from the X and Y components of the wind vector outputs available from the InflowWind module and the nacelle-yaw angle may be output from the ElastoDyn module.

Best regards,
