Many reserachers focuses on the special machine like Switched reluctance motor (SRM) because of peculiar performance compared to various standard motors. This paper reviews the various power convertor topologies developed for the SRM. Switched reluctance motor (SRM) is gaining abundant interest in industrial applications like wind energy systems and electrical vehicles—thanks to its straightforward and rugged construction, high‐speed operation ability, inability to warm temperature, and its options of fault tolerance. This paper provides indepth analysis with completely different topologies have been emerged and presented less torsion ripple, high potency, high power issue, and high power density. However, there has forever been a trade‐off between gaining a number of the advantageous and losing some with every new technology. During this chapter, numerous SRM topologies, design, principle of operation, and individual section change schemes are extensively reviewed, and their blessings and downsides are mentioned.
