This paper presents a novel switched reluctance (SR) motor with wound-cores placed on stator and rotor poles. The wound-core is made of grain-oriented silicon steel, which exhibits high saturation magnetic flux density and less core loss. These contribute to reducing the volume and weight of the motor. We investigate the operating characteristics of the novel SR motor using a coupled analysis method proposed by authors. The characteristics of the proposed motor are compared with that of conventional one.
