Abstract: This paper describes a low cost digital measurement system for measuring the voltage, current and flux linkage and rotor position of switched reluctance motor (SRM) drive. The digital measurement scheme was developed using a eZdsp TMS320F2812 board along with CCS-IDE environment. The graphical window allows plotting the current, voltage, flux linkage and rotor position waveforms of SRM with a high degree of accuracy and presentation of results. The complete digital measurement scheme of the SRM incorporating the magnetic characteristics implementation algorithm is experimentally implemented and validated using a digital signal processor board TMS320F2812 for SRM drive.

Keywords: low cost digital measurement; current measurement; voltage measurement; flux linkage; measurement; switched reluctance motors; SRM; rotor position; digital signal processing; DSP.
