Abstract

This paper proposes vector control specialized for a switched reluctance motor (SRM) drive. Because it is a unipolar drive, a sinusoidal current with a DC off set is applied to each circuit instead of the conventional trapezoidal current. The current consists of DC and AC components which can be identified by their generation of a (virtual) rotor flux and rotating stator magnetic field, respectively. Thus, the vector control system can be developed in the same way as conventional AC machines. The proposed technique provides new mathematical models of SRMs on a rotating reference frame and achieves precise and fast torque response and advanced operations such as linear torque-current control and maximum torque per ampere control. The vector control theory was verified through simulations and experiments.
