This paper briefly describes an approach to determine the optimum magnetic circuit parameters to minimize low speed torque ripple for switched reluctance (SR) motors. For prediction of the torque ripple, normalized data obtained from field solution and a neural network approach is used. Comparison of experimental results with computations illustrates the accuracy of the method. The optimization method is briefly described and some results are presented.
