the switched reluctance motor is a simple and robust machine, which has found application over a wide power and speed ranges in different shapes and geometries. This paper introduces a new configuration for a three phase switched reluctance motor. The proposed novel motor consists of two magnetically independent stator and rotor layers, where each stator set includes six salient poles with windings wrapped around them, while the rotor comprises of four salient poles with different arc lengths and no windings. This motor includes the two sets are connected independently. In this connection the stator poles in each layer can have both North and South Pole configurations. In this paper a new three phase 6/4 two layers SRI is proposed for analysis with finite element method (FEM) by numerical technique. The motor application is simulated with Magnet Software to get motor's characteristics consist of flux and torque.
