Switched Reluctance motor is more attractive as a variable speed drive. It has its own advantages such as high speed capability, high torque inertia etc. Modelling of electrical machines plays an important role to study its performance and optimizing process. In this paper, modeling 8/6 switched reluctance motor is done using finite element method. Even though it is a time consuming method, it provides accurate results. Here Electromagnetic analysis is carried out using finite element method to study the nonlinear flux distribution. The performance of the motor is analysed by injecting current in the motor windings. The simulated results are obtained i at various rotor positions corresponding to excitation current.
