I want to build simple reluctance motor for education purpose. I have couple of small 3 Phase AC Induction motor with 24 slot stator lap winded for 4 pole design.
I want to convert it to reluctance motor, for that I will cast rotor of silicon steel with slots according to ( 24/16 ) design or similar. But as I do not have much winding experience, I want to reuse the existing winding on stator with may be little rewiring of phase ( i.e. remove star / delta, and use all six wire to switching circuit. )
Can this work ? Is this concept possible to work ?
