Six-Phase Switched Reluctance Machine Control

This example shows how to control the rotor speed in an electrical drive based on a six-phase switched reluctance machine (SRM). A DC voltage source feeds the SRM through a controlled six-arm bridge. The converter turn-on and turn-off angles are constant.
