    In this paper, a novel type of hybrid reluctance motor (HRM) drive is presented. This new motor is characterized by a stator formed by a combination of independent magnetic structures, each one composed of an electromagnet, the magnetic core with one or several coils wound on it, associated with a permanent magnet disposed between their poles. The rotor has the same configuration of a switched reluctance motor (SRM) without any coil, magnets, or squirrel cage. A particular case of this HRM, with three electromagnets with permanent magnets in the stator and five salient poles in the rotor, is studied. The motor is then analyzed and simulated. Finally, experimental results are given, and this type of motor drive is compared with the SRM drives of the same size. This new type of HRM does not present cogging torque and has higher power and efficiency than an SRM of the same size.

    In the next years is expected an important rise in sales of electrical scooters in the entire world but especially in China. In order to address this challenge the electric scooter industry has to be more competitive in the transportation market and therefore important improvements, in terms of energy density and costs, have to be done in the electric storage system and in the electric propulsion system. In this paper, an analytical and experimental comparison of two different drives for electric scooters is carried out. Both are permanent magnet synchronous outer rotor motor drives but one placed inside the rear wheel and the other connected to the wheel trough a mechanical transmission.

    Torque ripple is an inherent characteristic of switched reluctance motor drives due to its double salient geometry and it is a serious drawback in applications that require smooth torque and high dynamic performances. This paper presents some contributions to the minimization of torque ripple in SRM using direct instantaneous torque control (DITC). Direct torque controller is simulated using Matlab/Simulink and then implemented in a DSPACE ACE kit 1006 CLP that includes a processor board with an AMD OpteronTM running at 2.6 GHz. Finally, experimental results are shown and they are compared with those obtained using conventional angle control.

    Torque ripple is an inherent characteristic of switched reluctance motor drives due to its double salient geometry and it is a serious drawback in applications that require smooth torque and high dynamic performances. This paper presents new contributions to the minimization of torque ripple in SRM using an enhanced direct instantaneous torque control. Torque ripple is reduced by adding a PI controller before the instantaneous torque controller and a change in the commutation zones. The PI direct instantaneous torque controller (PI+DITC) is simulated using Matlab/Simulink and then implemented in a DSPACE ACE kit 1006 CLP. Finally, experimental results are shown and they are compared with those obtained using conventional direct instantaneous torque control.

    This article presents a new comprehensive design procedure for longitudinal flux flat linear switched reluctance motors. The design process comprises all the steps from detailing the specifications to sizing the prototype to validating the design, and it can be applied to three types of flux flat linear switched reluctance motors: single sided, double sided, and modified double sided. The design is based on an analytical formulation of the average translation force determined using a simplified non-linear energy conversion loop. Special emphasis is devoted to the calculation of the number of turns per phase. A two-dimensional finite-element analysis, corrected to take into account end effects, and a lumped parameter thermal analysis were used to refine and/or validate the design. Finally, a linear switched reluctance motor prototype was built following the proposed design and was verified by experimental measurements.

    The purpose of this paper is to provide an analytical approach to the thermal behavior of a longitudinal flux flat linear switched reluctance motor (LSRM) suitable for the early stages of motor design. The approach uses a thermal model based on lumped parameters and adapted to the particularities of LSRMs. The thermal network is solved using the widely recognized Matlab-Simulink software. The proposed analytical approach was verified by means of experimental measurements and thermographic analysis.

    The prediction of switched reluctance motor (SRM) performance requires knowledge of core losses. However, the calculation of iron losses in SRM is especially complex first because the flux waveforms are nonsinusoidal and different parts of the magnetic circuit have different waveforms and second because they are conditioned by the type of control used. This study proposes an analytical method for calculating core losses that comprises simulation of the SRM using finite element analysis to determine the magnetization curves, and SRM modeling, which enables transient simulations with the associated electronic power converter run under different control strategies. The flux density waveforms in the different parts of the SRM are derived from the flux density waveform of the stator pole that is obtained from the transient simulation. The specific core losses (in W/kg) are separated into three parts (hysteresis losses, classical eddy current losses and excess losses) and calculated using the waveforms and time derivatives of the local flux density. The core losses for each part of the SRM’s magnetic circuit can be estimated using the calculated values for specific hysteresis losses, specific classical eddy current losses and specific excess losses for each zone. Adding these individual losses yields the total core losses. The method was applied to three-phase 6/4 SRM, and the calculated results were compared with experimentally obtained measurements.

    This paper compares the environmental and life cycle impact of one switched reluctance motor (SRM) drive and two inverter-fed induction motor (IM) drives. The study was carried out according to the Directive on the Ecodesign of Energy-Using Products (EuP 2005/32/EC) and following the Methodology for the Ecodesign of Energy-Using Products (MEEUP). The following base-case models were used: an IM (Eff3), an IM (Eff1) and an 8/6 SRM. All of these base-case models are rated at 1.5 kW of output power and are considered to be representative of the low-power range. The analysis shows that SRM drive has a lower environmental impact than the IM drives and offers a high savings potential, comparable to, or even greater than that of the IM (Eff1) in the use phase.

    In this paper, switched reluctance motors (SRM) are proposed as an alternative for electric power assisted steering (EPAS) applications. The new 42 V power voltage system is a very attractive design for a steering electric motor, both from a cost and size perspective. A four-phase 8/6 SRM drive is designed for a rack type EPAS which should provide a maximum force of 10 kN. Two-dimension finite element analysis is used to validate the design.

    A current-controlled switched reluctance motor drive for a variable speed applications with efficiency optimization is presented. Firing angles are computed online, the turn-on is calculated by means of the rule of Bose, and the tur-off is calculated using the general theory of the optimal turn-off angle proposed by Gribble. In steady state operation, the initial selection of firing angles is fine-tuned by means of an algorithm that minimizes the input power of the drive. An efficiency and electrical energy consumption comparison with a commercial vector-controlled induction motor drive of the same size is also included. Experimental results show that the proposed switched reluctance motor drive is a good choice for applications that require slow varying loads and energy savings.

    Outside-spin brushless D.C. motors are an alternative to conventional D.C. brush permanent magnet motors, especially in applications that require low power and costs and in which high inertia effects are advantageous. This paper presents a procedure for computing power losses in these kinds of machines. Expressions are derived for predicting copper losses, power interrupter losses, stator iron losses in the tooth and in the yoke, mechanical losses, friction and windage. Stray load losses are also considered and evaluated from previous measurements in outside-spin brushless D.C. motors. The results obtained from the approach proposed are compared to those measured on existing motors, showing a good agreement.
