Transient analysis of switched reluctance motors



The prediction methods for steady-state performance of switched reluctance motors (SRMs) have been in place for some time; however, little attention has been paid to the transient analysis of the machine. This paper reports the effects of various faults, loading and unloading, as well as starting on the transient behavior of SRM. Results are presented to illustrate that faulty conditions will not produce serious problems in the operation of SRMs
