Quick Design of Switched Reluctance Motor and Effect of Switching Angle ANSYS MAXWELL
Keywords:Switched Reluctant Motor, Switching Angle, ANSYS MAXWELL,
AbstractThis working paper presents a design of the switched reluctance motor (SRM) for the electric scooter using the coefficient method. Experienced designers usually design an electric motor by analytical or magnetic field analysis. Difficulties arise for those who lacked experience in designing reluctance motor. So this working paper aims to produce guidelines to construct a switched reluctance motor. In this working paper, switched reluctance motor is modelled using coefficient method developed as a quick reference in determining the geometry of SRM based on past research. Next, the designed model would be analyzed using ANSYS Maxwell finite elements software. Simulation of the said model is in the Maxwell two dimensions with standard external circuit excitation with different switching angles. The expected outcome can be observed from the effects of switching angle on torque and current winding profile. As a result, the effect of switching is identified.
