New Approach for Optimizing Control of Switched Reluctance Generator

R. Rebbah, A. Bentounsi, and H. Benalla

Abstract—This paper presents a new switching approach that determines the optimal control of the Switched Reluctance Generator (SRG) for accomplishing maximum energy conversions. The proposed method is based on the novel concept of “ideal base speed flux/current curve” that optimizes the conduction angles in the mode of single-pulse and Chopping Current Control (CCC) operations. To validate the proposed control technique, simulation results are provided. The practicality of the controller is illustrated by a variable speed wind application of a 6/4 SRG.

Index Terms—Optimal control, conduction angles, Switched Reluctance Generator, optimization, variable speed, wind power.
