Vary RPM of a fan

Hi everyone,


I am simulating an inverter cooling with axial fans. Does anyone know how to vary RPM of a fan in Solidworks Flow Simulation? Because I want to see the effect of fan static pressure to thermal behavior of the cooling.


I have tried changing the rotor speed (rad/s), which is corresponding to RPM, but to no avail. Let's say I use Papst 8412N fan, the default rpm is 3600 rpm. I have varied the rpm from 3600 to 50 rpm, but the results are similar.


Your suggestions are highly appreciated.
