Switched Reluctance Motors and Their Controls

Overview

The aim of this book is to help engineers understand, design and evaluate the switched reluctance motor (SRM) and its controls. The SRM is a relative newcomer to the family of electric motors and is unusual both for having salient teeth on rotor and stator and for its complete dependence on its power electronic controls. It is however remarkably versatile.

Overview

The aim of this book is to help engineers understand, design and evaluate the switched reluctance motor (SRM) and its controls. The SRM is a relative newcomer to the family of electric motors and is unusual both for having salient teeth on rotor and stator and for its complete dependence on its power electronic controls. It is however remarkably versatile.
Part of the design problems is that the switched reluctance motor does not conform to the established design techniques used for classic DC and AC electric motors. The practical design engineer is confronted with a machine that has no steady state, has extreme localized saturation and requires an unfamiliar power-electronic converter to make it work at all. The geometry is beguilingly simple and everything about the motor and its control seems at first sight to be a gift to the production engineer. Yet the attainment of good designs and satisfactory performance is practically impossible by traditional design methods.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The switched reluctance motor is relatively new to the family of electric motors, but quite versatile. It is unusual for having salient teeth on the rotor and stator, and for its complete dependence on power electronic controls. Miller (power electronics, U. of Glasgow) provides guidance for engineers who want to design, evaluate, or just understand the beast. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
