Flow around a Wind Turbine with a Flanged-Diffuser Shroud using an Actuator-Disk mode

I want to do a small, relatively intensive study of a horizontal-axis wind turbine. I have studied CFD before, but some of the concepts seem fairly intuitive.
There're https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MLdY-bWJBJM, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkIT1jkD9PE, and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E77Kw-nXMtA on Youtube which were apparently done using OpenFOAM, but there are no hints on how to recreate their work. I've created a 3D FreeCAD model of the shroud with actuator disk model based on some tutorials that were created with simpleFoam.
Please can anyone out there help me out on how to setup simulation of a shrouded wind turbine.
