The operation of the switched reluctance machine as an autonomous three-phase ac generator is considered. Two circuits are proposed. The generator circuit consists of only capacitors and load supplementary to the generator, but does not contain any power supply. Theoretical approaches for simulation of the three-phase autonomous switched reluctance generator are presented. The influence of the high harmonics in the phase current on the power output is discussed. Experimental and simulation results are presented.
