Abstract: The problem of Closed loop speed control and controller design of Switched Reluctance Motor is a topic of research interest in recent years. In this paper a simple speed control scheme for switched reluctance motor using microcontroller is proposed. This scheme is based on PI control algorithm. Firstly the simulation of the proposed speed controller scheme is executed using Matlab 7.0. Secondly the performance of the machine is analyzed. Finally implementation of the proposed controller is performed using PI controller, 18F2550.

Keywords: Closed loop, Switched Reluctance Motor, Matlab 7.0., PI control algorithm.
