Winding configurations are investigated for a six phase, 12-10 switched reluctance machine having single tooth wound coils and being driven from a conventional three phase full bridge converter with the addition of six diodes. A new winding configuration is proposed and shown to develop more torque with less torque ripple than a conventional winding in this application. Finite element modelling is used to investigate the electromagnetic behaviour and compare the performance of different winding configurations. Initial experimental tests are described in verification of the modelling. The novel drive and new winding configuration offer significant advantages over a standard three phase machine and drive, giving increased mean torque with lower torque ripple and acoustic noise, as well as reduced converter complexity and potentially cost.
