Determination of Flux Linkage Characteristics and Inductance of a Submersible Switched Reluctance Motor Using Software Tools
Switched Reluctance Motor (SRM) drive system has obtained considerable attention in industry and academic research. This is mainly because of its simple structure, robust performance, low cost manufacturing, high torque density and relatively simple control and converter structure. This is due to new achievements in power electronic devices, high-speed microcontrollers and advanced control strategies. Different perspectives of SRM drives have been studied over the past two decades. These researches can be divided into two main categories, namely, magnetic design of the motor and control strategies for the converter. Switched reluctance motor drives are being used in domestic and industrial applications from power steering to washing machines to traction.
