The aim of this book is to help engineers understand, design and evaulate the switched reluctance motor (SRM) and its control. The SRM is a relative newcomer to the family of electric motors and is unusual both for having salient teeth on rotor and stator, and for its complete dependence on its power electronic controls. It is however very versatile. Part of the design problem is that the SRM does not conform to the classical design techniques used for classical DC and AC electric motors. The practical design engineer is confronted with a machine that has no steady state, has extreme localized saturation and requires an unfamiliar power-electronic converter to make it work at all. The geometry is beguilingly simple, and everything about the motor and its control seems at first to be a gift to the production engineer. Yet the attainment of good designs and satisfactory performance is practically impossible by traditional design methods. Tim Miller is the author of "Brushless Permanent-Magnet Reluctance Motor Drives".
