This Paper summarizes the study conducted on the techniques used and implemented to minimize the torque ripple of the Switched reluctance Motors. These motors although offering the advantages of higher speeds, reliability and phase independence, have the limitations of the torque ripple and non-linearity in the magnetic characteristics. Thus in order to have the good understanding of the Motor, it is simulated in the MATLAB/SIMULINK environment. This paper describes details on modeling of two different configurations of Switched Reluctance Motor concentrating only on the linear model by obeying all of its characteristics. The two configurations of motors are applied with two different control techniques and the results are calculated and tabulated. Load and No load analysis are also performed to understand the behavior of motor with load. Through out the analysis, various values of turn-on and turn-off angles are selected and finally the optimum values are calculated based on the performance parameters of Average torque, speed and torque ripple. All simulations are documented through this paper including its block models and initializations performed. Finally a control technique is recommended which produces the best results with smallest torque ripple.
