     Because of its high starting torque and improved performance in a variety of operating situations, the switched reluctance machine (SRM) has emerged as a potential challenger in the family of electrical machines. SRM has been a new addition to the industrial market in recent years. Drawbacks of SRMs are the torque ripple and acoustic noise. This research focuses on the minimization of torque ripples in a Switched Reluctance Machine by optimal switching angle in a low inductance region for a range of speed. For this, simulation is performed with the aim that SRM operation in a low inductance region will take place with low torque ripples. The finding of this research will help in better performance of the machine when operated at the desired angle.
