Hi everyone,
I need help with the torque calculation of a darrieus wind turbine simulation made in XFlow. In the post-processing I can view correctly (checked) the angular velocity (wy in this case) of the turbine by the Function viewer tool. In the function viewer I can also view moments in the 3 axes but I'm not sure of these results because My values for example, are both negative and possitive and makes no sense, plus I don't know where are they located. Do you know a correct method to get the right torque in the same axis of the angular velocity to get the power in XFlow software? Thank you
