Time Synchronus Average - tsa - MATLAB

Time Synchronus Average - tsa - MATLAB


I am trying to understand how the tsa function works in matlab in order to use it for gear drivetrain signal analysis.

I get that for: y = tsa(x,fs,tp)
- x is my dataset
- fs is the sampling frequency

What I dont understand is how to calculate tp. So far, they way I used the function is by inputing as tp the 1/f0 value, where f0 is the Gear Mesh Frequency of the gear I try to analize, but I don't get the expected results.

Thanks in advance,,
