This book gives readers crucial information to understand magnetic design, dynamic modeling, and high-grade control of switched reluctance motor drives (SRM) in the context of various motoring and generation applications. That includes those required in automotive, consumer products, and energy-harvesting industries. Content covers experimental and application-related design strategies and provides insightful explanations of multi-physics problems within SRM. It opens the door for new opportunities to use SRM drives in other relevant industries, especially those aimed at operation under harsh environmental conditions and very high speeds.
