Abstract

This paper presents a novel converter topology for six-phase switched reluctance motor (SRM) drives, which reduces the number of switches and diodes by half, compared with the conventional asymmetric half-bridge converter, but needs no additional energy storage component. A dynamic model of a six-phase SRM is developed in the MATLAB/SIMULINK environment and conventional current chopping and angle position control techniques are applied to the proposed converter, demonstrating successful operation across the full speed range with modified conventional control techniques, lower converter losses, and higher system efficiency compared with the asymmetric half-bridge converter. Experimental tests comparing two versions of the proposed converter with an asymmetric half-bridge are described and verify the predictions of the simulations.
