Constructions of an electromechanical transducer for a switched reluctance motor (SRM) and the circuit of a transistor switch with a serial energy storage are considered. The electromechanical transducer with pseudo U-shaped stator core elements has rational (efficient) magnetic system, and applied circuit design for the electronic commutator of the switched reluctance motor (SRM) allows improving power characteristics.

A computer-aided design (CAD) software for designing switched reluctance motors (SRM) is described and the results of devising the switched motor for a wheel drive of an invalid chair using this system are shown.

The investigations of mechanical and operational characteristics of the developed motor have been performed with the help of CAD intended for investigating the switched reluctance motor with the serial energy storage.

The results of the numeric investigation of electromechanical processes in the electric drive of the chair motor-wheel are verified by the experimental investigations and indicate the adequacy of proposed mathematical models and expedience of applying the developed motor for the drive of the invalid chair.
