Background/Objectives: This paper deals with the design and implementation of Series Field Converter (SFC) for Doubly Salient Reluctance Motor (DSRM). Methods/Statistical Analysis: SFC is developed to reduce the total power loss by reducing the components. By including Resistive-Capacitive-Diode (RCD) snubber the losses are decreased and regenerative operation is provided. Findings: The RCD snubber is used to suppress the high voltage spike which occurs on the collector of the IGBT during turn ON and turn OFF period of the switch. Applications: The designed converter can be used for all types of reluctance motor.
Keywords: Bifilar Winding, Doubly Salient Reluctance Motor, RCD Snubber, Series Field Converter
