A Position Sensorless Speed Control for Switched Reluctance Motor at Low Speeds

This paper describes a position sensorless speed control for switched reluctance motors (SRMs) at low speeds. The sensorless drive can be carried out using the phase inductance in the phase previously turned off. This unenergized phase inductance is computed by applying the voltage pulses in a short time. The turn-off timing is decided so that the… CONTINUE READING
