This paper presents an extended Field Reconstruction Method (FRM) to model a Switched Reluctance Machine (SRM), which is set apart from other electric machines by its double-saliency and magnetic saturation. Traditional magnetic models of SRM developed using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) are computationally inefficient. This, in turn, limits their application in simulation of SRM drive system especially under iterative optimization procedures. FRM can significantly reduce the computational time by utilizing a small number of static magnetic field snapshots to establish the basis functions which are then used to reconstruct the magnetic field with high accuracy. In this paper an extended version of FRM is introduced within which effects of magnetic saturation and double saliency are taken into account. Results from FRM, FEA and experiments are compared and good accuracy is observed.
