The paper proposes a novel switching strategy that increases the efficiency of the energy conversion and reduces the noise level produced by the generator. The technique redistributes the three switching stages of the converter within one working cycle. Such technique is viable when the generator operates below its base speed. Here, the back electromagnetic force is always lower than the DC-link voltage, hence the phase current is controlled at a desired value. The proposed control method is validated using a commercially available four phase 8/6 switched reluctance generator.
