This paper presents a novel controller architecture and speed control design
methodology suitable for low cost, low performance switched reluctance motor drives.
By utilizing inexpensive components in a simple, compact architecture, a low cost
controller is developed which achieves a performance level similar to many high
performance controllers. A speed control design methodology is established and analyzed
based on the linearized small signal model of the switched reluctance motor. This unique
control methodology is simple and provides a starting point for further research into
speed/current controller parameter design for switched reluctance motors. The analysis,
design and realization of the speed controller are presented. The derivation of the design
methodology for speed controlled, switched reluctance motor drives is discussed, along
with computer simulations for verification. Experimental results utilizing the proposed
architecture and design methodology verify the control design and performance
capabilities of the speed controller system.
