Default Internal fan - energy used
Posts: n/a

I am simulating a flow in a closed channel and so using just a internal fan BC at a location in this channel ; I have setup the DP and the radial and tangential velocity of the fan , in order to have the right velocity in my channel .

My question is how is it possible to check the energy needed by this in order to move the fluid (water) in these conditions ?. Basically through this simulation is it possible to know the power needed for this fan in order to operate in these conditions ?.

Thanks for any help
