Switched reluctance motors are mainly used in traction, industrial and automotive pumps and home appliances (vacuum cleaners and certain washing machines). Their structure is similar to that of stepper motors, but switched reluctance motors have fewer magnetic poles. Despite their simple structure, external electronic commutation is needed.
