Default Frozen rotor approach for Wind turbine CFD - FLUENT?

Hi guys,

I am calculating the power output of a wind turbine using FLUENT steady-state simulations. I am using multiple frames, one rotating one stationary (see attached domain picture). I define periodic boundary condition for both, stationary and rotating domain. I get results close the the experimental data.

I see some studies using CFX for frozen rotor approach. There are just a few studies where FLUENT is used with multiple frames for wind turbine simulations. Most of the studies done with FLUENT use one single frame and rotate whole domain. I want to know the reason behind this?

Thank you.
