COMPUTER APPLICATIONS IN ENGINEERING EDUCATION, vol.16, no.4, pp.268-279, 2008 (SCI-Expanded) identifier identifier


This article introduces an educational tool for a switched reluctance motor (SRM) drive system it is prepared for undergraduate and graduate level students. Classical PI and Genetic PI controllers are used in SRM drive system. The Genetic PI controller was applied to the speed loop, replacing the classical PI controller. The tool software was implemented using C++ Builder on a PC. It has flexible structure and graphical interface. The students can be easily establishing a thorough understanding of both classical PI and genetic PI controller for a SRM drive system. The education tool allowed the student to interact with the SRM drive system and it is using controllers, Then it is responses on a dynamic and instantaneous basis under different operating conditions.
