I create 3D modeling and mesh them, but I can not know what must do I do for definition then boundary condition specially for boundary condition for Blade(define as wall), Moving wall or stationary wall ? and what is the sign of angular velocity ? Best Regards

The blade will have to be defined as a moving component. With a prescribed velocity OR torque. The positive direction of both torque and velocity are defined in the conventional way. You can quickly see which way the blade will rotate once you start the simulation.

The mesh boundary conditions can of fixed pressure, with the pressure equal to the ambient. What kind of blade is it?
