Analysis and Comparison of Power Electronic Converters for Conventional and Toroidal Switched Reluctance Machines
Abstract: Different power electronic converter topologies are introduced in this paper for both Conventional Switched Reluctance Machine (CSRM) and Toroidal Switched Reluctance Machine (TSRM) drive systems. Their commutation, switch and diode currents, power losses, and efficiencies under over modulation operation are analyzed and compared for converter characteristics study, performance evaluation and topology selection for CSRM and TSRM drive systems. The switch and diode silicon volumes required for each CSRM and TSRM drives are also compared according to their corresponding currents at the equivalent machine torque versus speed operating points.
