Abstract

This paper deals with the influence of the various stator structures in a Switched Reluctance Motor (SRM) on the vibration behaviors. The stator part in SRMs produces most vibrations. Therefore, the geometric design of the stator is necessary to reduce the vibration. The free and forced vibrations for four different stator yoke structures are analyzed by the electromagnetic and structural Finite Element Method (FEM). Then vibration stator structure that offers less is proposed. The modal analysis results of a tested motor are compared with measurements.
