- This paper covers switched reluctance generator (SRG) and its comparison with inductionand synchronous machines for distributed generation. The SRG is simple in design, robust in also withstand very high temperatures. However, the performance and cost of the SRG power electronics driver are highly affected by the topology and design of the converter. IGBT and MOSFET based converters are not suitable for very high power applications. This paper presents thyristor-based resonant converters which are superior candidates for very high power applications. Operations of the converters are analyzed and their characteristics and dynamics are determined in terms of the system parameters. The resonant converters are capable of rs are highly efficient and reliable as well. Therefore, they are suitable for high power applications in the range of 1MW or larger for distributed generation.
