Default wind turbine Torque for each time step (transient flow)

Hey buddies,

I want to somehow extract the torque (and forces in different directions) for transient flow over a wind turbine. I want to do it automatically so I will have the desired quantities for each time step (preferably in one file)!

Anyone have any idea?

Thanks in advance.

blackmask will become famous soon enough
It is /solve/monitors/force/set-???-monitor under TUI. You should be able to find the equivalent menu items under GUI. They are located at the same place as residual monitors.
