I am going to use SOWFA to simulate a windfarm and compare the results against real measurements. To start, I try to simulate a single wind turbine using the solver "windPlantPisoSolver", and after a few seconds, the execution stops with this error:

I recently started to work with the solver suite provided by the NREL and I ran into several problems with the usage. Most of them I already solved and I think your problem with those solvers is based on several modifications made to OpenFOAM during the version changes. It may compile correctly but that does not mean it is working correctly.
You may want to look into the source code of the pisoFoamTurbine solver included in the SOWFA suite and compare it to the original pisoFoam solver sources. You will find several changes (appart from the FAST modifications). If you take the original pisoFoam solver as a base and add the modifications according to the suggestions made by the SOWFA people you might be able to let it run correctly.
I also think that a good start might be the fastDuct tutorial included in the suite instead of the windPlant tutorial.
