BIPOLAR SWITCHED RELUCTANCE MACHINES: A NOVEL SOLUTION FOR AUTOMOTIVE APPLICATIONS

This paper examines the use of bipolar switched reluctance machine (SRM) in automotive applications. The authors discuss the analysis of electromagnetic force components and how electromechanical energy is converted in single phase excited and multiphase excited SRM drives. A short flux path excitation scheme is shown to offer higher torque density, lower core losses, and a more balanced magnetic and acoustic performance. The use of a bipolar excitation technique can greatly enhance the efficiency and power quality of the SRM, yielding a significant improvement in automotive applications.
