A Novel Noise Reduction Technology for Switched Reluctance Motors

The conditions are sought at which an SIR motor can be operated with highest efficiency, while producing a desired torque output at low shaft torque ripple. The investigation is based on the simulation software that uses measured flux-linkage (V, 0, 1) and static torque (T, 0, 1) characteristics of a given motor. The variation of the shaft torque, torque ripple and efficiency of the motor Is investigated, while the control variables "advance angle" and "conduction angle" are swept over their range with a constant phase voltage. It Is observed that with correct choice of the control variables it is possible to operate the motor efficiently at low torque ripple, at a desired torque output The simulation results are shown to be reliable via experiments. A control strategy is suggested for controlling an SR motor shaft torque at the desired conditions.


A sliding mode controller to minimize SRM torque ripple and noise
Bizkevelci, E; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal; Ertan, HB (2004-01-01)
This paper is an attempt to eliminate the torque pulsation of switched reluctance (SR) motors. It is well known that pulsed radial and tangential forces are the source of acoustic noise problems often mentioned in relation to SR motors. In this study, to control the force pulsations, phase voltage is selected as the control variable contrary to what is often encountered in the literature. The authors believe that cost effective implementation of this choice is now technically possible. Selection of appropri...
An analytical approach for determination of optimal stator/rotor saliency number of a swıtched reluctance motor
Kılınç, Cem Erkan; Bostancı, Emine; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2020)
The purpose of this study is to seek the optimal stator and rotor saliency number of a switched reluctance motor (SRM) for hybrid electrical vehicle (HEV) applications. For this purpose, first a previously developed SRM analysis software is investigated to identify possible errors in implementation of both the theory and the coding. Performance prediction method is based on the use of normalized force and permeance data produced via numerical field solution, and a polynomial based interpolation is introduce...
Wide-Speed Range Control Strategy for a 8/6 Switched Reluctance Machine
Pop, A. C.; Petrus, V.; Martis, C. S.; Iancu, V.; Gyselinck, J. (2011-09-10)
A control scheme for obtaining low torque ripple and high efficiency for a minimal reduction in average torque as compared to its maximal value is presented for a four-phase switched reluctance motor. At low speed, the torque ripple is minimized by the means of current profiling techniques. As the speed increases the controller switches to optimal firing angle control strategy. The optimal values for the angles are obtained based on minimization routine for different objective functions. Starting from the o...
A Software for analysis of permanent magnet AC motors
Bulgan, Deniz; Ertan, Hulusi Bülent; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
Nowadays permanent magnet motors became very popular in almost every area of industry such as automotive, aerospace and automation due to having higher efficiency, better torque-speed characteristics, longer life, higher dynamic response, higher torque per volume when compared to brushed DC and induction motors. These advantages made PM motors very essential and the need of design and analysis of PM motors became more important with the need of specialized applications. In this thesis, a previously develope...
Experimental investigation of shaft transducerless speed and position control of ac induction and interior permanent magnet motors
Goksu, Omer; Hava, Ahmet Masum (2010-01-01)
In order to drive AC motors with high efficiency and high motion performance, and to provide accurate speed/position control, motor shaft speed and/or position feedback is required. For this purpose, usually transducers (encoder, tachogenerator, resolver, etc.) are installed on the shaft. However, transducers are not preferred in most of the applications since they increase the cost and decrease the reliability of the drive due to their failure prone structure and connections. In such applications, the spee...
