MODEL OF SWITCHED RELUCTANCE MOTORS IN MATLAB ENVIRONMENT

      Nowadays, switched reluctance motors (SRMs) attract more and more attention. Switched reluctance machines have emerged as an important technology in industrial automation. The Switched Reluctance Motor implements a three-phase switched reluctance motor (SRM). The stator has three pole pairs, carrying the three motor windings, and the rotor has several nonmagnetic poles. The motor produces a torque by energizing a stator pole pair, inducing a force on the closest rotor poles and pulling them toward alignment. They represent a real alternative to conventional variable speed drives in many applications. It not only features a salient pole stator with concentrated coils, which allows earlier winding and shorter end turn than other types of motors but also features a salient pole rotor, which has no conductors or magnets and is thus the simplest of all-electric machine rotors. Simplicity makes the SRM inexpensive and reliable, and together with its high-speed capacity and high torque to inertia ratio, makes it a superior choice in different applications. This design attempts to create a MATLAB model 2007b version(available in Matlab toolbox) of SRM. Simulation results also prove the exactness of the model.
