Abstract: A dynamic simulation of the drive system enables verification of the analytical designs and ability of the motor drive system to match the load torque over its entire speed range both in its steady state and during transients. With such verification, time and cost of product development are minimized by avoiding a trial-and-error approach to prototype construction that may lead to repetitive testing and redesign until specifications are met. Such a trial-and-error process in design is very costly and time consuming. Simulation of the drive system requires models for the SRM drive subsystems and their interconnections. The simulation procedure is also illustrated with many cases of SRM operation. This study presents a procedure for designing an SRM, selecting a suitable converter topology to drive it and designing a current controller, torque-smoothing controller and speed controller for the purpose of getting a high SRM drive performance.
