## Description

The SRM Current Controller block performs discrete-time proportional-integral (PI) current control for the Switched Reluctance Machine (SRM) block.

### Equations

To determine the duty cycle, the block implements discrete-time proportional-integral (PI) current control in accordance with this equation.

$D=\left({K}_{p}+{K}_{i}\frac{{T}_{s}z}{z-1}\right)\left({I}_{s\_ref}-{I}_{s}\right)$

Where:

*D*is the duty cycle.*K*is the proportional gain._{p}*K*is the integral gain._{i}*T*is the sample time._{s}*I*is the reference current._{s_ref}*I*is the measured current._{s}

To obtain control signals for the three-phases, the block then multiplies the duty cycle with the commutation signals. The resulting three control signals are normalized over the interval [0, 1].
