Hi,
Is it possible to simulate a rotor-stator problem using the general moving mesh? I mean to define a subdomain and give a rotational speed to it.
if yes, then what is the difference of this method with transient rotor-stator (sliding mesh) approach?

Yes, you can do rotating models with moving mesh. Doing it using moving mesh will be much slower, use more memory, be less accurate and be harder to converge. So it is highly recommended to use rotating frames of reference for rotating things.
