The way i use to calculate the power required by a rotating machine is the following: Report/Forces/Options-->Moments Then set the moment center and the rotating elements (i.e. in a fan you may have stationary and rotating parts, but you are only interested on the rotating ones, that is, the rotor blades and so on) When you clik "Print", on the Fluent text window will appear the required moment (be carefull: use the net moment) Finally, the product of the moment and the rotating speed will give you the Power required.

I hope have been usefull
