Hi everyone,

I am trying to implement FOC algorithm in Simulink using the Motor Control Blockset. I want to simulate the iPower Gimbal Motor GBM2804H-100T with the Surface mount PMSM block. However, I don't understand what the LdTrq input is or how to set it up. SInce it is a motor I do not understand why a motor shaft input torque is required. Also if I am required to use this input, could I use a constant or would I need to do something else ? Please any help would be really appreciated.
