Switched reluctance machines (SRMs) sidestep many of the issues with permanent magnet and induction machines and embody the lowest cost and simplest manufacturing of the motor technologies. Major drawbacks to SRMs have been (1) the need for failure-prone electrolytic capacitors, (2) large torque ripple, and (3) acoustic noise. Conventionally, these… CONTINUE READING
