– The Switched Reluctance Machine (SRM) based electrical drive systems are ideal for diverse automotive safety-critical applications where the fault tolerance is a basic requirement. The phase independence characteristics of the SRM enable it to operate under partial phase failure conditions also in its classical construction. Its reliability can be(More)
—This paper deals with a novel design conception of Switched Reluctance Motor (SRM) for electrical vehicles as electrical mini truck. This design consists of segmented stator with toroid windings water cooled and the rotor has salient poles. The SRM dimensions are calculated on the base of input requirements. The static and dynamic parameters of SRM are(More)
The switched reluctance motor (SRM) has inherently high level of fault tolerance. However despite of its high robustness and reliability it can face windings and bearings faults. The faults can cause costly downtimes in industrial environment, or they can bring about more severe consequences in safety critical applications. Therefore the detection of the(More)
Simulations are widely used in the study of both electrical machines and drives. In the literature, several simulation approaches can be found which can be also applied in the study of the switched reluctance motors (SRMs). The on-line SRM simulation tool developed by the authors and presented in this paper proved to be very useful both in checking the(More)
– In various safe-critical industrial, medical and defence applications the translational movements are performed by linear motors. In such applications both the motor and its power converter should be fault tolerant. To fulfil this assignment redesigned motor structures with novel phase connections must be used. In the paper a modular double salient(More)
