Abstract

In this paper, we present a two-dimensional (2-D) analytical model of conventional switched reluctance machines (SRMs). This model has been applied to an 8/6 conventional SRM supplied by conventional excitation (viz., standard asymmetric H-bridge). The goal is to determine the electromagnetic performances. The proposed analytical model is based on solving the partial differential equations (PDEs) due to Maxwell’s equations in each domain of the studied machine (viz., air-gap, rotor and stator slots). A parametric study by using the developed analytical model has been compared with that obtained by numerical computations in linear and non-linear conditions. The results showed that the analytical and numerical results are in good agreements in linear conditions. However, in non-linear conditions, the developed model overestimates the performances. Indeed, to predesign the machine, this model can be incorporated in optimization environments where savings in computation time are needed.
