This paper introduces the general linear magnetic circuit model of a novel 5-phase segment type switched reluctance motor (ST-SRM) of which rotor cores are embedded in an aluminum block as well as to improve the performance characteristics under simultaneous two-phase (bipolar) excitation of windings. The developed model implements the magneto motor force (mmf) that is necessary to produce short and exclusive magnetic flux paths minimizing the commutation switching and eddy current losses in the laminations. For this purpose, an equivalent magnetic circuit for newly developed ST-SRM and the underlying assumptions are given. The concept of apparent inductance and torque equations of two-phase simultaneously excited ST-SRM is introduced and the effectiveness and deficiencies of the linear model are given.
