Background/Objectives: This paper deals with the design and implementation of Shunt Field Converter for Synchronous Motor. Methods/Statistical Analysis: This converter topology is developed to improve the performance of the motor and to reduce the total power loss. Findings: The RCD snubber is used to suppress the high voltage spike which occurs on the collector of the IGBT during turn ON and turn OFF period of the switch. Applications: The designed converter can be used for all types of reluctance motor.
