Hi, i'm a new user with user defined functions and I need some help

I'm trying to simulate a VAWT case with the sliding mesh tool en Fluent v.17.2 and I gotta interprete a DEFINE_ZONE_MOTION in order to calculate the NACA boundary layer. However, with this UDF I only can set rotation velocities to define the rotor motion and I want to introduce a function where I could put angles depending on time instead of velocities to avoid losing precision in the results.

This is my question:

Is there any UDF where I can put angles functions and not velocities functions???

Please, I need your experience
