Abstract

This paper explores how the use of a modified full bridge converter, coupled to a 6 phase switched reluctance motor, can produce a torque dense drive with low torque ripple, combined with standard drive electronics and a good converter VA rating. A description is provided of the new drive configuration: a prototype motor and drive are constructed and test results provided. Results are compared with those to be expected from the same switched reluctance machine driven from a conventional, asymmetric half bridge converter.
