Abstract

Different power electronic converter topologies are introduced in this paper
for both Conventional Switched Reluctance Machine (CSRM) and Toroidal
Switched Reluctance Machine (TSRM) drive systems. Their commutation,
switch and diode currents, power losses, and efficiencies under over modulation operation are analyzed and compared for converter characteristics study,
performance evaluation and topology selection for CSRM and TSRM drive
systems. The switch and diode silicon volumes required for each CSRM and
TSRM drives are also compared according to their corresponding currents at
the equivalent machine torque versus speed operating points
