Artificial neural network vector controlled common high-side switch asymmetric converter fed switched reluctance motor drive

Ashok Kumar Kolluru, Malligunta Kiran Kumar


The best alternative machine for synchronous and induction machine is switched reluctance machine for various applications. An artificial neural network (ANN) based vector controller is implemented for novel converter to drive switched reluctance motor (SRM) in this paper. To reduce the cost and simplified the controller an effective configuration of converter is proposed with only 4 pulse-withmodulation (PWM) based switches. The 6 pole stator and 4 pole rotor machine is considered in this paper to present results based on MATLAB. The ripples in torque are reduced by proposing vector controller by using novel configuration of converter. Generally SRM machines are having high ripples in torque, hence less number of switches will be feasible solution to drive the machine in order to reduce ripples. The proposed controller can also help to operate system with less ripples in torque since the controller having both torque and flux hysteresis controllers. The extensive results are presented on Simulink platform to validate the proposed method under both steady state as well as transient conditions.
