SRM, Flux linkage characteristics, Simpson’s rule


This paper presents a indirect method of measuring flux characteristics based on DSP. By measuring current and voltage on a phase winding circuit and transfer them to PC by communication program, combined with the Simpson’s rule, the magnetization characteristics are obtained. The experimental instruments needed in this method are common, and the test platform is easy to be built, thus the expense is lowered in measurement of flux. The test indicates the measuring process is simple to implement, and the experimental results are accurate.
