A nonlinear simulation model of switched reluctance linear launcher drive based on MATLAB platform is presented in this paper. It consists of a three-phase 6/4 structure simple side switched reluctance linear motor, a three-phase asymmetric bridge power converter, and a closed-loop velocity controller, which is integrated with the magnetization curves of the switched reluctance linear motor obtained by the two-dimension finite-element electromagnetic field calculation, the nonlinear electrical network model of the power converter, and the excitation/commutation/velocity control algorithms. Those include mover relative position calculation module, controller module, power converter module, phase winding modules, and velocity calculation module. The simulated phase current waveforms and velocity curves agree well with the tested phase current waveforms and velocity curves experimentally. It is shown that the proposed nonlinear simulation model of the three-phase 6/4 structure switched reluctance linear launcher system is valid.
