Direct instantaneous torque control (DITC) is one way of controlling torque in switched reluctance motors. Despite the presence of DITC control, torque ripple at nominal or higher speeds is considerable due to the back emf increasing. To overcome this drawback, many converters have been proposed. In most convertors proposed for fast excitation in DITC, controlling of boost capacity is an important problem. This paper presents a DITC for a switched reluctance motor using a proposed converter to reduce the torque ripple with controlled boost capacitor automatically. The proposed converter reduces the torque ripple at rated or higher speeds and no controller requires controlling the boost capacitor. The proposed converter is compared with an asymmetric one via simulation results using MATLAB and experimental results.
