Direct Instantaneous Torque Control of the Switched Reluctance Motor for Electric Vehicles Applications Using Fuzzy Logic Control

Journal Title: Acta Technica Jaurinensis - Year 2019, Vol 12, Issue 2


This paper presents direct torque control of Switched Reluctance Motor (SRM) using Fuzzy Logic Control (FLC) for electric vehicles applications. The PD-FLC is proposed for SRM torque control, to keep the torque of the motor shaft in tracking the reference torque with high accuracy. With the help of FLC techniques, the SRM torque ripples can be reduced compared to traditional control techniques. In this study, the nonlinear 6/4 SRM model is simulated with the symmetrical converter, and the converter controller is programmed using C-language. The proposed method is tested at different load and variable speed conditions, and the obtained results confirm that the FLC direct torque control can be used for torque control to improve the motor performance and reduce the torque ripples compared to other techniques such as direct instantaneous torque control.
