Commutation angles adjustment in SRM drives to reduce torque ripple below the motor base speed
This paper investigates the problem of high torque ripple in switched reluctance motor (SRM) drives. A method is proposed for below the base speed operation of SRM that determines both the turn-off and the turn-on angles for reducing motor torque ripple. Determination of the turn-off angle is an offline process performed through solving a multiobjective optimization function consisting of two criteria: torque ripple and copper loss. Turn-on angle adjustment, however, is an online process based on the intersection approach of consecutive phase currents, particularly proposed in this paper. Simulation and experimental results are presented to validate the reduction in torque ripple gained from the proposed angles control scheme.
