  • This paper compared a Modified C-dump converter and energy efficient converter topologies, derived from the conventional C-dump converter, for switched reluctance motor (SRM) drives. The proposed topologies overcome the limitations of the conventional C-dump converter, and could reduce the whole cost of the SRM drive. Also, the above converters have simple control requirements; and allow the motor phase current to freewheel during chopping mode. Specially, the voltage ratings of the dump capacitor and some of the switching devices in the proposed an Energy efficient C-dump converter is reduced to the supply voltage ($V_{dc}$) level compared to twice the supply voltage ($2V_{dc}$) in the conventional C-dump converter. Simulation and experimental results of the proposed converters are presented and verified.

  • Switched Reluctance Motor (SRM) has a characteristic that the inductance changes very nonlinearly depending on the magnitude of the current and the relative position of the rotor and stator, and the torque is generated In consideration of these problems, many studies have been conducted on a topology for driving that can improve efficiency and performance in an existing asymmetric bridge converter in order to simplify the circuit and economic efficiency. Therefore, in this paper, we want to check the performance by comparing and analyzing each converter used by applying it as a topology for SRM driving. The driving converters applied to the comparison and analysis are Conventional C-dump, Modified C-dump, Energy efficient C-dump, Resonant C-dump converter with C-dump converter type structure and the most widely used asymmetric bridge converter and 6-Switch inverter that used for general motors.

  • Recently, SRMs are used in automobiles for power assistant steering, accessory motion control and traction drives. Especially in the motion control and traction drives, safety and efficiency are of paramount importance. The paper describes the essential elements faced in designing and constructing driving circuits for a switched reluctance motor for automobiles. An important factor in the selection of a motor and a drive for industrial application is the cost. The switched reluctance motor(SRM) is a simple, low-cost, and robust motor suitable for variable-speed as well as servo-type applications. With relatively simple converter and control requirements, the SRM is gaining an increasing attention in the drive industry. This paper presents a modified C-dump converter for Switched Reluctance Motor (SRM) machine application in the cooling system of automobiles. The experiments are performed to verify the capability of applicate control method on 6/4 salient type SRM.

  • Small electric motors in an automobile perform various tasks such as engine cooling, pumping, HVAC etc. At present, most of them are DC motors supplied by 12V or 24V batteries. However, DC motors suffer from low efficiency, life cycles and reliability. Therefore, there is a growing interest in substituting DC motors for advanced at motors including switched reluctance motors(SRM). Although there are several other forms SRM convertors, they are either unsatisfactory to the control performance or unsuitable for the 12V battery source. Especially, a conventional asymmetric converter of SRM provides the best flexible and effective control to the current waveform of SRM, but it has the most switches and produces conducting voltage drops across two power switches during SRM operation. For automotive applications with a 12V battery source, this circuit is inadequate. For considering the requirement for effective operation and simple structure of converter in the limited internal circumstance of automobiles, the author inclines toward selecting Modified C-dump converter and Energy efficient c-dump converter.

  • This paper deals with the analysis of switched reluctance motor drives for different drive circuit topologies used in automobile. So we attempt to improve the weaknesses associated with the asymmetric bridge converter in the limited internal environment of automotive application. Two kinds of c-dump converters are tested in terms of dump capacitor voltage, speed response according to the variation of advance angle and efficiency for the radiator cooling-fan drive of an automobile. They enable more economical and efficient converter topology for automobile industries. This paper describes the performance characteristics of 12V-250W-3000rpm SRM drives for automotive application. Computer simulation and experiment results are then presented to verify the performance of the two kinds of c-dump converters.

  • Small electric motors in an automobile perform various tasks such as engine cooling, pumping, and in heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system. At present, most of dc motors are supplied by 12V or 24V batteries. However, DC motors surfer from lack of efficiency, low life cycles and unreliability. Therefore, there is a growing interest in substituting DC motors for advanced AC motors including switched reluctance motors. Although there are several other forms SRM converters, they are either unsatisfactory to the control performance or unsuitable for the 12V-battery powered 3-phase SRM drives. Taking into account the requirement for effective operation and simplicity structure of converter in the limited internal environment of automobiles, the author inclines toward selecting the modified C-dump converter as well as the energy efficient C-dump converter.
