Abstract: In domestic applications like air conditioners Buck or Cuk converter fed by Permanent Magnet Brushless DC Motors (PMBLDCM) are applicable in literature. Due to drawbacks of economical factor and non availability of permanent magnets these motors are not preferable in these days and are compensated by using Switched Reluctance Motor (SRM) as it has benefits of simple design and low cost. For domestic applications accessible input is AC, a diode bridge rectifier is a simple way of converting AC to DC but it produces lower order harmonics, a low power factor on supply side and variable DC on DC side. In order to overcome this problem PWM rectifier and Buck-Boost Converters are proposed for harmonic mitigation and power factor modification. This paper describes the design analysis (calculations) of 200V, 4KW, 2500 RPM 6/4 pole SRM. Analysis is carried out for SRM drive in air-conditioner (ac) application with PWM rectifier and Buck-Boost converter (BBC) for Power Factor Correction and harmonic mitigation. In proposed work the analysis was carried out for 6/4 SRM with various conditions like initial condition, step variation in dc link voltage, at fixed DC link voltage and variation in source voltage. MATLAB/SIMULINK model of SRM drive for different conditions said above were developed and results were also discussed in this paper. Voltage and current waveforms representing power factor is shown for the SRM drive system with PFC- PWM rectifier and Buck Boost converter. Comparison between proposed converters fed SRM and existing converters like Buck, Cuk converter fed PMBLDCM and Zeta converter fed SRM were given along with their THD. THD was reduced and limited within IEEE standards when operating SRM drive with PFC converter.
