The switched reluctance motor is appreciated in variable speed drives through his simplicity of design, his low cost, his high reliability and high ability to regulate which allow him to compete with the other common types of electric drives. The mathematical modelling of switched reluctance motors (SRM) allows his study in the areas of research and conception. In this paper, we present the developing of a methodology using the combined model of switched reluctance motor drive bases in standard equations of electrical machines with the field theory analysis of magnetic circuit. Then, the elaboration of mathematical models for switching reluctance motor (SRM) proposes his application based on a similarity with series DC motor to simplify the conception of control of electrical drives systems [1] with Closed Loop Control.
