About the course

Switched Reluctance Motor is one of the oldest electric motors that is competing for 180 years. Availability of sophisticated and economical power electronics technology gave rebirth to the most efficient and robust motor -SRM.  Due to higher efficiency, magnet-less operation, and simple mechanical structure, SRM becomes the most preferable electric motor for the latest electric vehicle applications. Recently advanced versions of SR technology have been used to power Tesla Model 3 electric car and claimed a significant increase in range (efficiency) compared to that of the induction motor-based Model S.


SRM offers many benefits like higher efficiency, less weight, low cost, reduced manufacturing process time, wide constant power region, fault-tolerant operation, and superior performance even at a comparatively higher temperature.


This course explains every fundamental detail about switched reluctance motor and drive. Starting from the fundamental operation of SRM, it covers detail about each parameter and terms related to motor, converter as well as a controller. It includes SRM geometries, magnetic characteristics, inductance profile, angular parameters, torque equation, torque-speed characteristics, converter topologies, speed control, closed-loop control, braking, regeneration, and more.




I am Dr. Jignesh Makwana. I am  working of SRM since 2005 and my first research paper on SRM converter  was published in 2008. Then after I have published numbers of research  articles on SRM in various journals, conferences and books. Other than  theory and publications, I have worked intensively on SRM hardware as  well as simulations. I have also provided consultancy service to the  industry for designing and manufacturing SRM, converter and controller.


This fundamental course is a compilation of all the important aspects of switched reluctance motor drive in a very well-organized manner and easy to understand with visual animations. It will give you the initial boost by clearing all your doubts about switched reluctance motor and drive. Even if you know few basic things about SRM, I assured you that you will learn so many more important things from this course.
