I'm doing 2D CFD analysis of a 3 bladed vertical axis wind turbine and using sliding mesh. I need to fing the power and moment of turbine. How can i do this by setting the reference values. What values should i set to length, area, depth and velocity?
Second question is, i need to find the forces on the airfoils. How can i do that?
Waiting for your answers...

reference values are for calculating dimensionless parameter but here you can easily use pressure and viscous forces directly.
you can find forces and moment in any directions.
