This example shows how to control the rotor speed in a five-phase switched reluctance machine (SRM) based electrical drive. A DC voltage source feeds the SRM through a controlled five-arm bridge. The converter turn-on and turn-off angles are held constant.
The plot below shows the requested and measured speed for the test, as well as the phase currents in the electric drive.
This example has been tested on a Speedgoat Performance real–time target machine with an Intel® 3.5 GHz i7 multi–core CPU. This model can run in real time with a step size of 100 microseconds.
