Switched reluctance motor based on short flux path control method
This paper presents the design and control of a 3-phase 12/10 asymmetrically structured switched reluctance motor (SRM). The nonlinear magnetisation characteristics of the SRM make the motor complex. Finite element analysis (FEA) is therefore model these characteristics. Analysis and verification obtained from simulation and modelling were used to guide the design and production of a prototype SRM. This motor is based on a short flux path control scheme.
