Switched Reluctance Machine Current Control

This example shows how to control the current amplitude in a switched reluctance machine (SRM) based electrical drive. A DC voltage source feeds the SRM through a controlled three-arm bridge. An ideal angular velocity source provides the load. The converter turn-on and turn-off angles are maintained constant. A PI-based current controller regulates the current amplitude.
