(1998) A new sensorless method for switched reluctance motor drives. Abstract— This paper describes a new method for indirect sensing of the rotor position in switched reluctance motors (SRM's) using pulsewidth modulation voltage control. The detection method uses the change of the derivative of the phase current to detect the position where a rotor pole(More)
—This paper studies fault-tolerant operation of multi-pole single-phase switched reluctance generators (SRG's), in particular , an 8/8-pole switched reluctance machine. The multipole single-phase SRG system is advantageous for reduced cost and higher efficiency compared to polyphase equivalents. However, using the classical phase-leg topology, a phase fault(More)
