Rotating Mesh for a HAWT

i'm working on a horizontal axis wind turbine in fluent.
I have a 3 blade rotor geometry to model (without any other component interfeerence such as the tower).
I'm going to mesh a cylindrical 3D domain.
The question is: what is the correct approach to model the flow?
i'm thinking about using the functionality explained in the user's manual ''10.modeling flows in mooving reference frames'' by setting a rotation axis and a rotational speed in the cell zone conditions menu, within the fluid dialog box enabling the ''frame motion'' option.
I wonder if this is a good way of modeling my problem. In addition: what is the difference between using a mooving frame and a mooving mesh in this case?
Thank you for helping.
