Development in power electronic derives, moreover simplicity and robustness of Switched Reluctance Motor (SRM) besides their ability to work in harsh conditions, makes them appealing to industrial applications. Structurally, SRM has ability to conform to different configurations to make it suited for purposed application. In this paper, an 8/6 two layers Switched Reluctance Motor is introduced. This rotor consists of two magnetically dependent sets which each set contains 8 stator poles and 6 rotor poles with windings wrapped around them. The torque ripple reduction is done by a novel introduced method using Rotor Shifting Method (RST). Furthermore, motor operations as SRM are modeled and simulated by 3D Finite Element Method (FEM). Finally, prototype of motor is fabricated and experimental analysis is carried out to confirm validation of modeling and simulation results.
