Abstract

What is new in this work is the generic capabilities of the proposed analytical model of permanent magnet machines associated with a novel deterministic global optimization method. That allows to solve some more general inverse problem of designing. The analytical approach is powerful to take into account various kinds of constraints (electromagnetical, thermal, etc.). The inverse problem associated with the optimal design of actuators could then be formulated as a mixed‐constrained optimization problem. In order to solve these problems, interval Branch and Bound algorithms which have already proved their efficiency, have made it possible to determine some optimized rotating machines.
