In this paper, the design and analysis of switched reluctance motors (SRM) are studied. SRMs gained more importance in recent years due to simple structural properties. Finite element method (FEM) is used for the analysis of SRM and the motor characteristics are investigated with simulation results. The changing of flux density, moment, current and inductance values are obtained. Besides, these characteristics are compared with different models that modified some of the parameters such as number of turns, winding resistance and material properties. The effects of these changes on the operation of the SRM are presented.
