A high speed, three phase, 12/8 pole, 225 kW switched reluctance motor (SRM) has been designed and analyzed. A circuital approach has been used to find the geometry, windings parameters and electromagnetic loading. Then, the 3D finite element method (FEM) has been used to calculate the static torque more accurately and optimize the design. The efficiency of the designed SRM is almost constant over wide range of speed and its phase current is less sensitive to the speed than that of an induction motor of the same rating. Recommendations for manufacturers and users are given.
