This article presents the application of fuzzy adaptive systems to the problem of torque ripple reduction in a switched reluctance motor. Conventional methods for torque linearization and decoupling are reviewed briefly, as is the previous application, by the authors, of neural network based techniques. A solution based on the use of fuzzy adaptive systems is then described. Experimental measurements of the static torque production characteristics of a 4 kW, four-phase switched reluctance motor form the basis of simulation studies of this novel approach. The simulation results demonstrate the capability of fuzzy adaptive systems to learn nonlinear current profiles that minimize torque ripple. The use of fuzzy systems in this application has potential advantages where the incorporation of a priori information, expressed linguistically, is concerned. Experimental results illustrate the effectiveness of the approach
