This is an excellent, practical guide for engineers to help them understand, design and evaluate the switched reluctance motor (SRM) and its control. The SRM is a relative newcomer to the family of electric motors and is unusual both for having salient teeth on rotor and stator and for itscomplete dependence on its power electronic controls. The SRM does not conform to the classical design techniques of the AC and DC electric motors and presents the design engineer with a machine that has no steady state, has extreme localized saturation, and requires an unfamiliar power-electronic converter to make it all work. The geometry is simpleand the result is remarkably versatile. Yet the attainment of good designs and satisfactory performance is practically impossible by traditional desogn methods. This practical book for industrial designer and academic alike presents the first detailed account of the properties and capabilities ofthe switched reluctance motor.

Editorial Reviews

`This helpful book will make a contribution to the development of the SR motor. It gives a good overview of all the design problems engineers can come across.'EPE Journal, Vol 4 no 3 Sept 1994
