Abstract

The primary objective for this paper is to create a methodology to rapidly optimize double-stators switched reluctance motor (DSSRM). An analytical model of equivalent magnetic circuits for the air gap reluctances of aligned and unaligned positions is proposed and the optimal operation point of the magneto-motive force (MMF) can be determined. Genetic algorithm (GA) integrated of the proposed equivalent magnetic circuit is developed for rapid optimization of DSSRM to reach the maximum of the ratio of torque to volume of DSSRM. Compared to conventional switched reluctance motor (SRM), an illustrated example of a 3-KW three-phase 12-Slot-8-Pole DSSRM is used to verify the efficiency of the proposed method. Simplified 2-D electromagnetic models are analyzed and simulated. Finally, results of the analytical calculations and the finite-element analysis (FEA) are validated by the proposed motor to show the accuracy of the designed strategy. View Full-Text
