Abstract

This paper deals with a new torque ripple minimization method for a Switched Reluctance Generator (SRG). Although, the SRG has many advantages including simple and robust construction, and high power density as a generator, it has not been widely employed in the industry. One of the major drawbacks of the SRG is its high torque ripple that results in high noise operation of the generator. In this paper, a non-unity Torque Sharing Function (TSF) is proposed to minimize the torque ripple over a wide speed range of operation. Simulations as well as experimental results are presented to verify the effectiveness of the proposed torque ripple minimization technique. View Full-Text
