Abstract: Switched Reluctance Motor (SRM) is a simple, low cost, robust structure, reliability, controllability and high efficiency, So that it is used in variable speed and high speed applications. Renewable energy sources are a great improvement in many applications. In this paper, a switched reluctance motor with PV modeling is introduced. The implemented design is based on the optimization of solar PV modules arranged in array, integrated with rechargeable battery with existing converter models to drive the switched reluctance motor. The results of the investigations compare with SRM driven by DC source offers superior performance in terms of simulation analysis.
