This paper study the dynamic modeling of three phases, 6/4 Switched reluctance motor (SRM). We have studied the models of electromagnetic field using the finite element method (FEM) for calculation flux linkage and static torque. From the modeling have found a nonlinear of dynamic model, the SRM model has been then tested in a matlab/simulink environment, using nonlinear 2D look-up tables created from its calculated flux linkage and static torque data. The simulation studies for hysteresis and voltage control strategies.
