In this paper, the Switched Reluctance Machine (SRM) is used as an AC generator. Power management requires circuit schemes based on well-known rectifiers which are shown and discussed. The aim of the circuits is to load a battery bank. As the operating conditions of the generator are associated with rotor speed, the topologies shown allow the generator to(More)
The Switched Reluctance Machine has certain advantages such as robustness and the absence of permanent magnets, which have encouraged its use in recent years. One of its applications is as a self - excited generator. This behavior is produced when a capacitor is connected in parallel to each single phase forming a resonant circuit. This application can be(More)
Switched Reluctance Machine (SRM) has a nonlinear behavior which difficults its understanding. The electric model shows this nonlinear behavior and it is difficult to derive conclusions but for the linear case. Simulators appear as the ideal tools for studying the machine. Although some papers report simulation models for this machine working in motoring(More)
This paper focuses on the Switched Reluctance Motor (SRM) used as self-excited generator. The phase inductance resonates autonomously with an external capacitor parallel connected producing an AC voltage almost sinusoidal. Although the voltage quality is not good enough to be directly connected the network utility it is able to be used as a battery charger(More)
The switched reluctance motor can be used in generation mode by selecting the firing angles of the phases. This implies the use of the asymmetrical half bridge Miller converter and position sensors or position estimators. In this paper an alternative current (AC) switched reluctance generator is studied. Generation is obtained by doing resonate each phase(More)
We analyzed an AC self-excited switched reluctance generator used as a battery charger, using a second- order nonlinear oscillator model. Generator capacity can be maintained under variable rotor speed by adapting the external capacitance. The AC voltage generated is rectified and adapted with a DC-DC converter to battery voltage. To keep the flux machine(More)
The Switched Reluctance Machine can be used as an AC generator. In this operation mode, a capacitor is connected in parallel with each phase forming an L-C tank. Due to L characteristics, the behavior of the machine is highly nonlinear and generally, analytical solutions for the system differential equations are not possible. The steady state behavior of(More)
FE simulation data provides information about magnetic properties corresponding to a range of foreseen current excitation and rotor positions. This information needs further processing to derive other electric parameters, among which, inductance plays an important role for simulation and modeling purposes. This paper describes this process looking for(More)
The voltage-current V-I static characteristic of a isolated full bridge DC-DC converter used as an electronic drive for a welding machine is described. The converter is peak-current controlled. The output current is indirectly measured through the primary. Some circuit limits as voltage drops in resistances and electronic devices modifies the ideal V-I(More)
