Electronic Control of Switched Reluctance Machines (Newnes Power Engineering Series)by T. J. E. Miller
Synopses & Reviews
Switched reluctance motors have steadily increased in commercial importance since their introduction in the early 1980's, while their technology - especially of their electronic control - has made great progress. Their unique characteristics introduce a delicate balance, in which the copper and iron are diminished in quantity, complexity and cost, in favour of a greater reliance on sophistication in the controller. Thus mastery of the control is the key challenge in the application of these machines.
This book is intended for engineer's in industry and in the large research community in electrical machines and drives. It introduces the techniques for controlling switched reluctance machines, starting from first principles and building up to the most advanced forms of sensorless control. It covers the recent advances in electronic control and includes aspects of motion control, automation, acoustic noise reduction and energy efficiency.
covers the recent changes in control technology
includes up-to-date equipment and methods
contains applications and case studies
Switched Reluctance (SR) motors have steadily increased in commercial importance since their introduction in the early 1980's, and their technology - especially of their electronic control - has also made great progress. "Electronic Control of Switched Reluctance Machines" introduces and explains the techniques for controlling SR machines, starting with the basic fundamentals and building up to the most advanced forms of sensorless control. The authors have included recent changes in electronic control and focus on aspects of motion control, automation and energy efficiency. The first book to go beyond the introductory level of general AC electric motor drives, "Electronic Control of Switched Reluctance Machines" is essential for both professional engineers and researchers evaluating or developing controls for these machines.
