Speed Controller of Switched Reluctance Motor IEEE Electrical Projects


Fuzzy logic control has become an important methodology in control engineering. The paper suggest a Fuzzy Logic Controller (FLC) for controlling a speed of SRM drive. The impartial of this work is to compare the operation of P& PI based conventional controller and Artificial Intelligence (AI) based fuzzy logic controller to highlight the work of the effective controller. The present work focus on the design of a fuzzy logic controller for SRM speed control. The result of applying fuzzy logic controller to a SRM drive gives the best work and high robustness than a conventional P & PI controller. Simulation is carried out using Matlab/Simulink.

Thus the SRM dynamic performance is forecasted and by using MATLAB/simulink the model is simulated. SRM has been designed and implemented for its speed control by using P, PI controller and AI based fuzzy logic controller. We can conclude from the simulation results that when compared with P & PI controller, the fuzzy Logic Controller meet the required output. This paper presents a fuzzy logic controller to ensure excellent reference tracking of switched reluctance motor drives. The fuzzy logic controller gives a perfect speed tracking without overshoot and enchances the speed regulation. The SRM response when controlled by FLC is more advantaged than the conventional P& PI controller.
