Stepper motors, brushless DC motors and switch reluctance motors emerged in the last few decades and these motors are finding applications in the various fields depending upon the demand. Switched reluctance motors have 6-4, 8-6 and 10-8 stator pole-rotor pole construction available. These motors work on the principle of reluctance. In this paper, analysis is carried out for 6 stator pole, 4 rotor pole switched reluctance motor. The parameters like flux linkages, stator current, electromagnetic torque and rotor speed are compared for the two different cases of turn-on angle. Case 1 represents turn-on angle of 400 whereas, case 2 considers turn-on angle of 600. Results of these two cases are compared and conclusions are derived. Complete test bench is simulated in MATLAB/SimulinkTM.

Keywords: Switched reluctance motor, torque, stepper motors, MATLAB, rotor speed.
