A switched reluctance d.c. motor having a plurality stators has been disclosed. Each stator comprises phase windings for energizing a set of stator poles. The stator poles are distributed about the circumference of the stator yoke. Two phases activated in succession are associated with distinct ones of the plurality of stators. The motor of the present invention operates under a wide range of rotational speeds while reducing the switching losses and audible noise in the rotor and stator iron.
