  • A system-level modeling technique for a switched reluctance generator (SRG) is described for aerospace applications. Unlike existing techniques, this model is very simple and only reproduces the average behavior of the input-output variables that are required for system-level analysis of the aircraft power distribution system. The model is parameterized from the measured generator response, avoiding the need for a detailed knowledge of the equipment structure, which may be unavailable. The modeling procedure is described in detail and validated by measurements on an SRG within an aircraft test facility.
