Study on Segmented-Rotor Switched Reluctance Motors With Different Rotor Pole Numbers for BSG System of Hybrid Electric Vehicles

This paper investigates the design principles and performance optimization for segmented-rotor switched reluctance motors (SRSRMs) with different rotor pole numbers for belt-driven starter generators of hybrid electric vehicles. For the design principles, several constraints are derived for the numbers of stator and rotor poles, the dimensions, and the number of winding turns. Two SRSRMs with 16/10 and 16/14 stator/rotor poles are presented according to these principles. For the performance optimization, the two motors are optimized individually for maximizing the torque. To evaluate the effect of different segmented-rotor numbers, the overall performances of the two SRSRMs are investigated and compared. It is found that the 16/14 SRSRM has higher flux linkage and static torque. The 16/14 SRSRM exhibits higher torque and lower torque ripple at low speed operation, whereas at high speed, the 16/10 SRSRM performs better in terms of torque and power densities. Compared with the 16/14 SRSRM, the 16/10 SRSRM has higher final steady speed under the same startup condition. The 16/10 SRSRM can achieve higher steady speed under starter mode and provide higher generated power under braking mode. Moreover, the 16/10 SRSRM exhibits higher efficiency in the most feasible speed range, especially in high speed range, and it has wider high-efficiency area. Finally, a 16/10 SRSRM is prototyped and tested to validate the simulation results.
