The main objective of modeling a switched reluctance machine is to derive a mathematical function to relate the outputs to the inputs. Due to the nonlinear relationship between the variables of torque, flux linkage, current and angular position of the rotor, Switched Reluctance Machine (SRM) modeling is a very challenging task and an open problem. Modeling is usually done in two situations, modeling a single machine, or modeling a set of machines. Each one must fulfill different requirements. This work presents a survey of different SRM modeling approaches, evaluating its advantages and limitations when modeling a single machine or a set of machines.
