Bell Awarded Patent for Tilt-Rotor Over-Torque Protection 28 Nov, 18, Source: USPTO

A system includes a first mast torque transfer system, a second mast torque transfer system coupled to the first mast torque transfer system, and a torque limiting system. The torque limiting system includes a first sensor configured to determine a torque of the first mast torque transfer system, a second sensor configured to determine a torque of the second mast torque transfer system, and a processor configured to determine a differential torque between the torque of the first mast torque transfer system and the torque of the second mast torque transfer system and configured to control at least one of a torque input and a torque output to at least one of the first and second mast torque transfer systems as a function of the determined differential torque.
