Switched Reluctance Machines are emerging as a possible solution for economic and supply stability problems of rare-earth based Electric Vehicle traction systems, being widely studied by academia and industry. Asymmetrical half-bridge and C-Dump are considered best topologies for Switched Reluctance Machines converter. The main goal of this work is to show a comparison of both topologies. Simulation results are provided to highlight their technical and performance differences. In addition, ratings of commercial power modules, suited for these topologies, are summarized. Advantages and disadvantages of such topologies will be highlighted taking into account automotive requirements.
