Abstract:
This paper describes the performance characteristics and comparison results of three different types of two-phase switched reluctance motors (SRM). This collection includes conventional, stepped rotor and slanted rotor two-phase SRMs. These motors have four stator poles and two rotor poles, named 4/2 configuration. The main difference between these configurations is their rotor structures. The number of turns and areas of all stator pole faces jointly involving in torque production mechanism in the motors are taken to be equal. The terminal inductance per phase, flux linkage of each stator pole winding, and components of leakage inductances are determined and plotted for different rotor positions and excitation currents. Finally, the static torque for different forced current levels and rotor positions are also presented for each motor.
