Abstract

Bearingless switched reluctance motors, which can control rotor radial positions with magnetic force, have been proposed. These motors have combined characteristics of switched reluctance motors and magnetic bearings. This paper proposes a method of determining the advanced angle of square-wave currents in a bearingless switched reluctance motor. Under any torque condition from no load to full load, a stable operation is realized by controlling the advanced angle of square-wave currents with the proposed method. It is shown experimentally that the proposed method is effective in realizing a stable operation.
