The calculator only shows burst damage for them. It's difficult to determine their DPS because it varies so much depending on whether you hit shields or hull. In general, adding a torpedo will lower your second to second DPS compared to anther weapon, even if you're firing it constantly. However, it can make up for it because when the shields go down you can do a lot of damage in a short period of time, especially if you use one of the torpedo skills.
I can try to consider some way of showing torpedo DPS in future versions of the program, but for now you're stuck with burst damage only. Sorry.
