Using JMAG to simulate control of a brushless flux-switching rotating machine

Abstract

The single phase flux-switching motor is a cost-effective brushless machine that offers a compromise between the pulsed, electronically complex switched reluctance motor, and the smooth rotating field of the synchronous reluctance motor fed from a three phase inverter.
The simple operation of the flux switching motor mean that JMAG can be used to simulate both its performance and its control using the in-built circuit simulator.
This presentation explains some of the reasons for doing this simulation in JMAG, demonstrates some results and shows how JMAG can be used to compare and contrast the flux-switching motor with other topologies through control simulation.
