Torque Ripple in Switched Reluctance Motor Based on Asymmetrical Bridge Converter

Authors(1) :-Pairote Thongprasri

This paper presents an investigation of the torque ripple in 3-phase Switched Reluctance Motor (SRM) with 12 stator poles and 8 rotor poles driven by the asymmetrical bridge converter. The optimal control parameters are determined to reduce torque ripple by adjusting DC bus voltage and excitation angles. A DSP TMS320F28335 controller is used to create the PWM and to calculate the rotor position. The rotary torque instrument is used to measure the motor torque at a rated load of 1.4 Nm. The experimental results, the torque ripple depends on the phase current shape. The lowest torque ripple will be produce when the phase current shape is flatted-top.
