Do you have any success in efficiency or calculations of another parameters (like torque)?

hi there are few functions available in the forum, just copy that and past it in your conroldict file it will give you torque.
and you can also monitor pressure, for each time step by compiling swake4Foam library.

all of the above are available in Forum, just do small search, you will get it.
