Development and analysis of double U-core switched reluctance machine

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/conference proceedingArticle in proceeding

Abstract

The switched reluctance technology offers some distinct advantages compared to conventional electric machines, such as simple and cheap construction, robust design, fault tolerant operation and high-speed capabilities. In the last couple of decades, improvements to the conventional SRM have been suggested, though each suggestion is subject to its own weaknesses. This paper presents a novel double U-core technology with short flux paths and efficient use of copper, as well as a unique stator design. The process of design and construction is presented. A demonstrator is build and detailed tests are described together with the results.
