The switched reluctance motor (SRNI) is an old member of machine family. Its simple structure, ruggedness, and inexpensive manufacturability make them attractive for industrial applications. This paper presents an equivalent circuit model for switched reluctance motor. Its linear model and dynamics are discussed in detail. Parameters and its approximate equivalent circuit are obtained by using linear model and dynamics of the switched reluctance motor. Simulation studies are performed for phase currents and the steady-state motor operation.
