The present study investigates the benefits of an individual pitch control (IPC) strategy on a DTU 10MW with a floating platform subjected to an upstream wind turbine wake. The wind turbine wakes are generated via large eddy simulation, with which the dynamic response of the downstream wind turbines are calculated using OpenFAST with IPC engaged. Three wind speeds and six arrangements with varying longitudinal and lateral offsets of wind turbine pairs are investigated. Findings show that the large spatial variance of the wind velocity in the rotor-swept area leads to a higher fatigue load of out-of-plane blade-root moment (MOoP). The IPC is effective in suppressing the 1P peak of the power spectral density of MOoP, as well as the yaw fluctuation of the platform motion, which saw a maximum 20% reduction in the damage equivalent load of MOoP and up to 74% reduction in the platform yaw fluctuation in the staggered wind turbine layout.
