In AC and DC drives, the use of switched reluctance machine (SRM) is becoming popular as it has a few preferences over AC and DC drives in a simple and robust construction without brushes, low inertia, and high torque to weight ratio, without rotor windings, simple circuit power converter, etc. SRM is widely used in variable speed and servo drives. Because of the double saliency structure and the high nonlinearity of magnetic material, it is difficult to represent the flux-linkage and static torque characteristic of the SRM. This work promotes the use of an improved numerical integration scheme for the static characteristics of SRM. The static torque function that depends on the rotor position and the phase current of the flux linkage features family (for different rotor positions) is improved in the proposed work. Firstly, we use an experimental setup for the electromagnetic characteristic of SRM. Then, we use the improved scheme to develop an efficient mathematical model for static characteristics and finally simulate the static characteristic of SRM through MATLAB code. In the last step, we compare the performance of the proposed integrator model with an existing approach for better efficiency of the static characteristic of SRM with experimental validation.
