This paper presents the design and drive characteristics of a switched reluctance motor for an electric power pallet vehicle. The designed switched reluctance motor is redesigned by using the finite element analysis(FEA) as a variation of the pole-arc angle for the purpose of an electric power pallet vehicle performance. The output power and torque characteristics of a switched reluctance motor are variable by switching angles of the commutator. Therefor this paper is studied about relationship between the output power and torque characteristics of a switched reluctance motor according to switching angles. The output power of the characteristic point of an electric power pallet vehicle has been shown by experiment. The designed motor drive system operates with the low voltage and high current with using the battery. The core and frame temperatures were described. In this paper, the designed motor is shown better drive characteristics than the DC motor from the rated to maximum, which is verified by the finite element analysis and experimental results.
