This book provides, with a modern approach, a clear accurate and comprehensive analysis of all aspects related to the Switched Reluctance Machines (SRM). It includes the construction and steady state operations of SRM as motor and as generator, the advanced speed control of SRM, the problem of the torque ripples and acoustic noise and vibrations and their minimization. Most of the chapters of the book are centered on a particular tool applicable to switched reluctance machines. Besides the general discussion on the tool, detailed modeling and a control strategy for that system are discussed. The chapters are not limited to modeling and control systems of different types of tools, but incorporate extensive simulation results that will be very helpful to students. For the simulation analysis, the most popular digital simulator for electric power system (Matlab
® toolbox) is used. The book is written in a somewhat tutorial style suitable for engineering students and professionals who are working with switched reluctance machines. It is also intended to be used by anyone with a good background in mathematics and physics who wants to be an expert in the field of switched reluctance machines.

The text can be used for educational, research, industrial and applied purposes.
