During installation, as the driving socket engages the nut or collar and the anti-rotation key engages the pin recess, the torque acting upon the pin is shown in figure 4.
The torque balance for the pin can be written as follows [3][4]:

Torque production in a PMSM is due to the mutual coupling between a permanent magnet and an exciting stator coil.
The regional examination of torque sensor market covers regions such as Europe, North America, Asia Pacific, and the rest of the world regions, which include Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America.
Here are some steps to follow: If the arrows consistently strike in the same direction you applied the torque (i.e., left torque, left miss), then move the arrow rest farther out from the grip, or extend the sight closer to the target.
Once a bow is properly torque tuned, you should be able to torque the grip in either direction without affecting a dead-center shot.
Essentially, advance commutation changes the amplitude and phase angle of current and then the torque. So it is necessary to analyze and solve the phase currents varying with the advanced angle firstly.
The progress in the Chevy Truck capability has been driven over the decades by the enduring performance of several landmark engine families, all sharing an elegant, overhead-valve architecture that contributes to signature low rpm torque production, reduced complexity and compact packaging.
In this paper, it presents a generalized torque model of PMSM based on flux linkage reconstruction, which considers the high saturation of iron core, harmonic wave of air-gap field and the stator slotting.
In another scheme, an analytical solution was developed for production motor voltages to provide a smooth torque [2].
