wind rotor problem in Fluent

I'm doing simulations of rotating Savonius wind rotor in transient problem
I do that using k-e model, moving mesh and caculate cp by the average torque value of a round rotating
but the cp are always lower than experiment values from a reference paper
it's no use by increasing the domain or higher the number of grids
how to setting the scheme in this problem or what can I do for this?

first of all are you making 2d or 3d simulations?
How have you choosen the turbulence modeling?Intensity and lenght scale?
Is your timestep ok?
I am asking this because all of these factors influences the result of your simulation.
If you haven't done,give a look at this thread : http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/flu...light=savonius , it gave me a lot of answers.
Hope to be helpful.
