Based on the analysis of mathematical model of switched reluctance motor and the structure of drive system, position sensor model, power converter model, switched reluctance motor model and other models were established through Simulink module. Through a combination of these models, a system model of APC control was built. The simulation results show the stability of the control system, which provides a reference to physical system designs of such switched reluctance motor.
