Model a rotatory system with openfoam

I want to model a rotatory system (water turbine) with openfoam!
There are two possible methods for modeling a rotatory system (such as a water turbine),
1) using a moving mesh
2) fixing the blades, and rotating the housing employing an angular velocity boundary condition. (fixed grid)
It is clear that the second approach is much easier to implement. I wonder to know their differences? Do they both result in similar results?
Thank you very much,
