Default PotentialFoam, strange results

Goodmorning, I've implemented a PotentialFoam study around an airfoil, but the results are very different respect to Xfoil results in inviscid case. I notice that also the parameter nNonOrthogonalCorrectors change the results a lot. Can someone help me to understand why PotentialFoam doesn't give good results?
I upload in attachment the folder with the files
thank you very much
Best regard
