Design and Analysis of a Switched Reluctance Motor

Using MagNet, various design and analysis aspects of a SRM are considered. Using an 8/6 SRM (shown here) as an example, results that are integral to the design and analysis of any SRM. The results presented here are for such a machine operating at 1500 RPM. Some other specifications of this motor are; rated current and voltage: 7 A, 300 V.

Nonlinear Time-Transient in Switched Reluctance Motors (T.E.A.M. Problem 24)

This is a test rig of configuration similar to that of a switched reluctance machine. It is made of solid medium-carbon steel and mounted in a nonmagnetic cage which can rotate about a stainless steel shaft. This example shows a nonlinear transient problem, which was solved by MagNet’s Transient 3D solver.

Switched Reluctance Motor: Comparing FEA with RSM

This application analyses a switched reluctance motor using two different methods: the MagNet Transient 2D with Motion solver, and a circuit simulator with a response surface model (RSM) created with the System Model Generator.
