This paper presents the design and operation of a switched reluctance motor (SRM). The designed motor is a 3-phase 12/10 irregular structured type which only operates in short flux path instead of classical long flux path. Switched reluctance motor has very high nonlinear magnetisation characteristics. Finite element analysis (FEA) was used to obtain the nonlinear magnetisation data for application to the modelling. Analyses and verifications obtained from simulation and modelling were used as a guide to design the SRM.
