Description

The Sinusoidal Torque Source block produces sinusoidal torque with a constant offset. A positive torque value generates torque acting from port B to port F.

The defining equation for the sinusoidal torque that the block generates is

T=To+A*sin(2πft+φ),

where:

  • T is the output torque.

  • To is the offset torque of the output.

  • A is the peak amplitude of the sinusoid.

  • f is frequency of the sinusoid in Hz.

  • t is time.

  • φ is phase shift of the sinusoid.
