How should I set a simulation in order to be able to see what is the resulting rotational speed of a wind turbine at a certain wind velocity?

Solve many steady state cases with different rotation speeds (like 10,20,30 rpm and so on). Find torque on the turbine in each case and compare it with torque on the generator. When they are the same then you get actual speed.
