Abstract

Due to its inherent characteristics, the Switched Reluctance Motor (SRM) is an up-and-coming contender for further investigation and analysis across diverse industrial domains. One of these domains is the field of electric vehicles(EVs), but this is no exclusive category. The mechanical design of the motor is notable for the inherent simplicity it possesses as well as the cost-effectiveness it offers. This article presents a comprehensive analysis of SRMs, including detailed descriptions, an in-depth review of their advantages and disadvantages, an investigation of their applications, and torque-speed profile and power speed profile graphical representations. The discussion incorporates the most recent findings from research on the methodologies and control strategies used.
