I was preparing a motor model by referring your model BEV in racing lounge, but faced some difficulties to understand  Torque limiter block. It would  be a great help if you would explain the entire block , thanks.

Hi Kartik,
Some preliminary notes:
This is what happens in the model:
• The block passes along a maximal torque (MaxTorque) and an allowable regenerative torque (AllowableRegenTorque).
• The block inputs are the APP (see above) and the current motor speed.
• The min block compares two torque values and passes on the smaller value. The first torque is the maximal motor torque (MDL.MotorModel.MaxTrqOutMaxTorque) itself, the second one is the maximal motor power (MDL.MotorModel.MaxPwrOut) divided by the current motor speed (which also results in a torque).
• The resulting torque from the min-block is multiplied with the current pedal position to obtain the MaxTorque value to be passed along.
• To get the allowable value for for regenerative torque, the resulting torque from the min-block is multiplied by -0.5. This basically says that maximally half of the current torque can be regenerated. Consider the '-0.5' as an assumption by the model creator.
I hope this explanation is helpful. Feel free to ask clarifying questions.
Best, Christoph

MDL.MotorModel.MaxPwrOut and MDL.MotorModel.MaxTrqOut are two constants defined in the model workspace. Consider them as motor-specific constants that shouldn't be altered. Why are this taken constant? What do they represent in this system by being constant?

hola buenas
Queria saber como puedo editar esos valores de "MaxTrqOut" y "MaxPwrOut" debido a que dependen de las caracteristicas del motor a elegir
