Abstract: The researchin this study aims at designing and modelling of a bridgeless cuk converter for driving a switched reluctance motor. Bridgeless Cuk converters are new series of AC-DC converters, it contain very less ripple of voltage and current and have output wave with good quality, high power concentration and good transfer voltage gain and no circuit elements parasitic limits of traditional converters. Bridgeless Cuk converters have good voltage transfer gains in arithmetic development on step by step. For the switched reluctance Motor drive, the C-dump converter is used. The present design aims at improving the effectiveness of the switched reluctance motor drive system by the incorporation of the Bridgeless Cuk converter between the electrical source and the drive system. The rule base of the fuzzy logic controller is modified to improve the stability of the controller without affecting the system performance. MATLAB simulation results are presented in this paper to explain the working of the proposed drive.
